InhalteThe aim of this module is that you become more comfortable and confident in speaking and writing about your own and other’s work in English.

We will practice conversations about art, read and discuss reviews and essays, listening to podcasts, visit exhibitions and converse about what we see. We will train your writing and presentation skills, and last but not least discuss how the dangers of being lost translation might be avoided.

We will discuss and train to adapt the format, style, sound and content of writing to different purposes.
