Americas and the Caribbean
This course enables students from intermediate level upwards to develop the skills needed for English-medium study at post-secondary level. The main features of Study Tasks in English are: a task-based approach. Whenever possible, students learn the skills they need through discovery and induction rather than telling; study skills and study competence. The course helps students to develop the underlying competence necessary for successful study - eg problem solving, thinking critically and creatively; awareness-building. Each unit ends with a self-assessment and application section, to help learners actively draw together the skills which they have focused on in the unit; study Practice in English. The Study Practice section provides four major study simulations to consolidate and give further practice through an integrated study cycle.
