Clear communication and critical thinking are key to academic success. This topic is designed to improve students' English language skills for effective communication in a tertiary setting. It covers a range of oral and written English language skills to support non-English speaking background (NESB) postgraduate business students' studying in the Australian context. The topic will focus on the broad areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing and will incorporate discussion and comparison of the social and cultural norms of academic communication in various international contexts. Through analysis of a range of business texts, students will develop their ability to respond critically and to communicate their message in a clear and professional manner. Using authentic examples, students will improve their ability to understand, plan and structure their assignments. Students will be expected to engage critically with a range of texts and produce oral and written texts at a postgraduate standard.
This topic aims to provide postgraduate students from non-English speaking backgrounds with the English language skills necessary for effective communication in a tertiary setting, which includes engaging with and producing high standard academic texts.
