Language Skills Development
Studying and researching in another language is an amazing achievement but can be challenging no matter how fluent you are. The English language programme aims to support and guide you through some of these challenges offering tailored Academic English seminars, Social English workshops, and much more.
The programme is delivered by the Languages EAP Team (English for Academic Purposes) and is free for students and researchers of the universities in Cornwall.
Sessions are weekly and you can join at any time. Please read the descriptors below and use the link at the foot of the page to let us know which you're interested in joining. We'll then send you the details of the location and time.
Academic Language Skills
These weekly workshops aim to develop the advanced writing and language skills you’ll need for your studies and/or research. The sessions are tailored to your level (undergraduate or Masters) and discipline area to allow for a focus on specific language and style e.g. Language for the Visual Arts, Language for Film and TV and Language for Business. If English is not your first language, it's strongly recommended that you join the sessions to see how we can help you make the most of your studies.
English in the News
An opportunity to develop your vocabulary, speaking and fluency in a relaxed atmosphere. Each week we'll have a look at what's going on both in Britain and around the world and discuss the hot topics of the week.
Language in Use
These weekly sessions are a chance to review grammar and vocabulary that you may have studied a long time ago or just want to feel more confident about using. We’ll look at elements like tenses, prepositions and articles in a context, and why we use the structures we do, in speaking and writing. The classes are also a good way to meet other international students and ask questions you have about the English language in a relaxed environment.
