Course descriptions 

 

ANG-102, ANG-106 Language Practice

 

The aim of these seminars is to develop students' overall English language competence. There will be a focus on expressing ideas in English with accuracy and clarity using the main language skills. There will be regular written and oral tasks, and students will also be expected to give short, in-class presentations. Apart from working with some material, for example, a coursebook, a range of supplementary materials will be used covering topics and issues reflecting the interests of the students.

ANG-202 Skills development

Some examples of these courses are as follows: Listening and Viewing Comprehension, Improving reading skills, Developing Oral Skills, Developing Presentation Skills, Vocabulary Building, Translation, Improving Communication Skills, Creative Writing, etc. Apart from in-class work led by the tutor, the classes will require thorough preparation and active participation on the part of the students who will also have to perform regular oral and written tasks.

Individual course descriptions will be provided for the specific courses.

 

 

ANG-204 Content-Based Language Development

 

These courses develop language proficiency through a specific field of study (other than language). In particular, they

  • offer an integrated development of language skills,

  • improve fluency,

  • deepen the students' knowledge in a subject area,

  • enrich subject-related vocabulary, and

  • enhance the students' ability to understand and produce complex discourse types related to the particular field.

Apart from in-class work led by the tutor, participants will be responsible for conducting and presenting individual research projects within the field using authentic sources. The oral presentations of the individual projects will be followed up by a written paper.

 

Some course titles are as follows: English in Intercultural CommunicationThe Language of the Media, Business English, English through Popular Culture, Focus on Australia, English-Irish Relations, English Speaking Cultures, English in the EU, Language Development through Professional Issues, English through Literature, British Social Issues, Current Issues in the Media, English in Diplomacy, English Speaking Cultures, English for Special Purposes, etc.

 

Individual course descriptions will be provided for the specific courses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ANG-271 Cultural Studies

This series of talks aims to familiarise the audience with important concepts of English speaking cultures. Understanding issues of identity, core values, difference, social change, and the connections of language and social issues help to raise awareness of interculturality and thus become better intercultural communicators. The lecture series—delivered by a team of lecturers—will therefore focus on these issues and provide important theoretical background as well as useful practical examples in the hope that the course participants will be able to use these as stepping stones in their cultural learning.

The course is followed by a written examination. Click here for information.

Please note that this exam can be taken as part of the course. However, in terms when the course is not provided (typically in the spring), it is advertised as an "exam course" (vizsgakurzus), which means that students who had taken the course and the exam earlier but failed can take the exam again.

N.B.: this opportunity is NOT open to those who had not taken the course before.

 

 

 

ANG-371 Specialization in English Speaking Cultures

This series of talks about culture and cultures aims to familiarise the audience with a background and tools for interpreting English language texts and interactions in their cultural context. Different lecturers will be addressing issues such as the meanings of ‘culture’, how to explore national cultures, the process of cultural learning, the relationship between language and culture and various aspects of cross-cultural communication. All lectures will present important theoretical background to these issues and demonstrate practical uses of the themes in relation to English speaking cultures. The examination consists of a multiple choice test.

 

 

 

 

ANG-372 Specialization in English Speaking Cultures

These are seminars on cultural issues related to the English speaking world. Some titles are as follows: Developing Cultural Awareness, Discourse Analysis for Intercultural Understanding, Intercultural Communication, Educational Culture, English Speaking Cultures, History of Ideas in the English Speaking World, etc.
