Course objectives
In the second semester the course develops skills covered in the PJI1N course and provides an opportunity to master further topics and skills typical for a more complex communication, and to apply them to professional activities typical of the business environment, such as: - interpretation of graphical data, - communication over telecommunication devices, - taking minutes and - writing up messages. This subject further develops students’ general and business vocabulary as well as grammatical structures typical for technical language. The stress is again put not only on the development of communication skills, but also on the ability to use the acquired knowledge actively. At the end of this course, students should be able to: - understand a general economic text of upper-intermediate difficulty level, - discuss covered economic topics and - orientate themselves in English economic terminology relating to the covered topics.

This course is taught only in the form of seminar sessions and it is completed with conferring a credit. Credit requirements include the following: - 80% active participation in seminars (systematic continuous preparation and fulfilling assigned tasks), - 60% success rate in the final credit test, - elaborating a seminar paper (translation of a professional text from German into Czech, 1 standard page, written up according to an instructor’s guidelines and handed in by a deadline set by an instructor). If a student commits a prohibited act, such as using various forbidden tools (e.g. cheatsheets), cribbing, taking out any part of the credit test or any other form of cheating, the teacher is allowed to interrupt the test and to grade the student with F, FF or even FFF, according to the seriousness of the offence. The described procedure applies to all the activities that are included in the final evaluation of the course (seminar work).
