English language is a tool for thought and communication. With this in mind, the English for Science Leaders I course has been designed to provide meaningful and purposeful interactions where ideas and opinions are developed and expressed by actually using the target language. Through English, students will become adept critical thinkers and persuasive communicators and the English language will be the channel through which students cultivate and share their thoughts on topics directly relevant to young science leaders. Main activities, based on collaborative learning and the integrated approach to language skills, include reading, pair/group discussions, (in)formal presentations/debates, group essay writing, quizzes, and peer review. Students are expected to use English only.
