English as a Foreign Language Capstone - EFLA302

This unit is designed for students from non-English speaking backgrounds, aiming to enable them to develop highly proficient English language skills for various academic and professional settings. Students will develop the capacity to handle text types which are academicly and cognitively demanding and to master the language to good effect at a level of performance which may in certain aspects be more advanced than that of an average native speaker. This unit enables students to develop high level English skills through an in-depth analysis of various authentic spoken and written English texts in different Australian academic and professional contexts, and developing a deep understanding of the structural properties of the language. This unit develops students’ inter-cultural communicative competence through exploring key issues in cross-cultural communication and cultural differences. It is taught in blended mode with regular online activities and meaningful assessment tasks. Students will also be engaged in reflective and independent learning activities, and work actively towards mastering effective communication skills and making independent critical judgements about appropriate use of English in diverse contexts.
