FSAE001 Academic English 1

Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit builds on the notion that improved English language proficiency is key to success in a university environment in Australia.

This unit is designed to develop, to an upper-intermediate level, the English language proficiency and communication skills needed for successful study in ACU undergraduate courses. The unit offers practice in four macro skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and dedicated study of grammatical and lexical structures, within the context of a range of topics and issues relating university studies and life in Australia. The unit also introduces the skills necessary to begin to incorporate academic sources into writing and introduces students to concepts of academic honesty at ACU.

The aim of this unit is to build on the knowledge and skills attained in Academic English 1, and to introduce students to more complex concepts in academic language and regarding Australian academic culture.
