English for Academe> 


This course bridges the gap between non-academic and academic study. If your first language is not English you will need a good intermediate level: equivalent to IELTS 5.5. If your first language is English you may need to study the Introduction to grammar in the library.

The course is themed around Sainsbury's, a UK supermarket. Each unit examines a particular aspect of the business and is divided into to five sections: reading, listening, grammar, vocabulary and writing.

The units are organised into blocks with a review at the end of each block. The course assessment will be an essay of about 1000 words.

Block one: introduction and products
Block two: stakeholders
Block three: systems
Block four: externals
