Prerequisites Notes
DescriptionThis part-time course gives high-intermediate and advanced level students the advantage they need to succeed in academic environments. Through excerpts from university level readings students are able to transform their passive vocabulary, words which they can understand if read or heard, into active vocabulary, words which they can readily use in their own writing and speaking. To help students reach a fuller understanding of the academic word lists, each week-long lesson, which is centred on a contemporary theme such as social change, consumer behaviour and natural resources, includes a series of exercises on word meaning, word families, collocations, synonyms and usage rules. The Power Vocabulary course also contains a writing component that challenges students to use the new words.
