Student language proficiency levels need to be benchmarked to internationally recognised and accredited English proficiency scales. This course develops students' capacity to prepare for and complete an online test of academic English, benchmarked to either a score of at least 58 on the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE) or the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) C1 level, to therefore enable students to prepare to meet future registration requirements of a range of professional disciplines. It also serves as a prerequisite for EUS1005 Language for Study 2.
In this course, activities in English have been organised to develop students' capacity to integrate academic reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in an online test of academic English. In this course, special focus is given to developing the precision and efficiency of a students' English language skills to an advanced level through emphasis on grammar, oral fluency, pronunciation, spelling, vocabulary, and coherence and cohesion.
