Course Aims

This course focuses on the academic language skills (writing, speaking and reading) necessary for producing a data-driven research report, with data arising from qualitative interviews, surveys, or a combination of the two. The format of the written report will follow the Introduction/ Methodology/ Results/ Discussion (IMRD) pattern used in many academic disciplines, including Sciences, Engineering, Business and Social Sciences.

Students will learn how to give an oral presentation of their research, using appropriate academic language. The course will build on the knowledge and skills students have acquired in the LC0200A course (English for Academic Purposes 1).
