English as a Foreign Language Mastery - EFLA301

This unit is designed for students from non-English speaking backgrounds, aiming to develop their English language skills in reading, listening, speaking and writing to a high level. It provides ample opportunities for students to acquire the language skills required for highly proficient language users who can master the language flexibly and appropriately for a wide range of academic and professional contexts. Students will work actively towards acquiring high level language skills through examining a variety of spoken and written texts encountered in Australian academic and professional settings, and developing a nuanced understanding of the structural properties of the language. Students will practise academic and professional language skills through various in-class tasks such as discussions of current issues, debates, role plays, text analysis, presentations, academic writing, and business writing. This unit is taught in blended mode with regular online activities and meaningful assessment tasks designed to develop students’ language skills as well as ability for self-directed learning. This unit enables students to work towards becoming highly competent and effective communicators.
