Course Description

Each week, students will take one hour of formal language work and hour of language extension work. The formal language work will be designed to increase students' confidence in using higher-register language and will help students to improve their knowledge and understanding of accurate models of morphological and syntactic structures. The extension work will typically include reading texts, translation and writing about a wide range of topics in preparation for Honours study. Students will be required to submit regular and extensive written formative assignments in addition to their assessed work.
