Course objectives
This interactive course covers the various forms of news genres in the print media. Via a set of tests and stylistic exercises students discover their ability to apply their (earlier acquired) knowledge in practice. They will learn how to carry out thorough text improvement – using a collection of authentic journalistic texts. They will also undertake more detailed stylistical intermediate exercises. Team work forms an important part of the teaching method.
