AbstractThe course gives participants the opportunity to broaden and intensify their knowledge of complex morphosyntactic structures. The objective is to improve their proficiency in expressing complex content.
The aim is that at the end of the course, participants understand a wide range of texts and are able to express themselves clearly and effectively in a wide variety of oral and written situations.
ObjectiveThe course helps participants to explore various ways in which they can express complex thoughts and ideas through different types of subordinate clauses, including consecutive, concessive, and hypothetical sentences, and indirect speech.
Using a range of written and oral activities, participants also practice aspects of grammar that often pose difficulties at an advanced level:
verb tenses and modes, use of articles and pronouns, adjectives and past participle agreement, choice of prepositions, and word order. At the same time, the course focuses on vocabulary expansion.
