Scientific English

English For Natural Scientists

The scientific community is borderless and its common language is English - so it's time to brush up on basics in English for Natural Scientists!

In summer semesters we read and discuss 5 scientific articles, focusing on understanding broadly what the authors did, how they report on their work and how we can usefully read the reports and ask questions about them. Students write a critical review of an additional article as homework.

In winter semesters we look at the conduct of research and science and the language that we need to talk about it. The semester is dedicated to building vocabulary, fluency and giving presentations: each student gives a 10-minute presentation on a topic of their choice.

Upper intermediate English or better (CEFR B1 - B2) required
