Would you like to develop your English speaking skills in an international student team online?

English Speaking and Listening is aimed at students who wish to improve their pronunciation in English, learn to listen to and comprehend spoken English better, and who want to improve their skills in online collaboration and the use of contemporary online discussion tools. The course is also suitable for all students from all degree programmes and exchange students, as the teaching language of the course is English.

This is a fully online 3 cr free-choice course with no classroom meetings, and it will be carried out in collaboration with an international partner university. This means that half of the students in the course will be from another country. The course consists of both working in small groups, but also some individual tasks. Even though the course has a schedule with set deadlines, the students need to be able to also work independently and schedule their own work.

Enroll to the course through Pakki by 25 February (course code NV00CR09, implementation number 3008). In addition to that, please send your Gmail/Google email address to Marianna Leikomaa (marianna.leikomaa(at)tamk.fi), as we use Google tools in the course and need your Gmail/Google id to invite you to Eliademy platform. If you do not have one yet, it is very easy to create it.
