CLE041. English for International Academic Conference (2 credits)

This course is to help students with ability to write academic paper correctly and make presentations with less difficulty. Even though this is not a writing course, to ensure good results, the following exercises are assigned: the writing of an abstract and an introduction to a paper based on any paper students have written, a complete paper for a conference with emphasis on correct format and style, the writing of a presentation script, and the making of PPT slides. If class size is so big that students’ correction becomes an overload for teachers, they may selectively make corrections of their papers. Students’ grammar and usage errors or problems should be summarily pointed out in class for students to avoid. Prerequisites: English for Academic Purposes III or EAP or English for Academic Purposes.
