Cíle předmětu
The overall aim of the course is to enable students to write acceptable texts in English to fulfil a range of academic purposes. That is, to enable students to write texts which are clearly-expressed, grammatically correct, correctly punctuated, well-structured and logically coherent. Subsidiary aims of the course are: 1. to raise students' awareness of the semantic and syntactic pitfalls of trying to 'sound academic'; 2. to emphasize the virtues of simplicity, explicitness and directness when attempting to express complex ideas; 3. to encourage students to remember the connection between speaking and writing - that is, to ask "Would I say this?" when considering the naturalness of the structures and sentences they choose.
