This course offers the opportunity to practice skills in Academic English in an international setting, examining the unwritten rules and conventions of international conferences, publications, and general communication. Participants will practice their English by going through the process of preparing an international conference talk, with the aim of both getting a feel for academic culture as well as becoming more confident in English within this setting. In addition, general questions about peer-reviewed journals / publications and other necessary practices and conventions, such as email-writing will be addressed.
