Inhalt
This course is designed for students of all faculties who have to write academic texts in English.

We will examine the typical style and vocabulary of academic writing and the linguistic tools needed for referencing research sources, producing summaries and composing different types of essays, as well as those skills needed for effective proofreading. This course will not only look at the mechanics of writing, but also aim to help students become better academic thinkers and planners.

This course will involve collaborative work, and through guided practice students will learn to give peer feedback on their colleagues’ writing, helping them in turn to become better editors of their own compositions.
This course will be assessed by the means of a portfolio of texts written during the course (50%), and a final exam (50%).
Eine Anmeldung ist erforderlich.

This course may also be attended by students in the European Joint Master s Degree English and American Studies (Master Module Language Proficiency).

Placement Test for English HaF courses
Only for students who are NOT students of Anglistik at the University of Bamberg. To attend English classes, students must take an obligatory placement test before the beginning of the semester. This helps us to place students in the correct level. The placement test evaluates grammar, reading, listening and vocabulary, and must be completed before FlexNow registration closes. Students who do not take the test may not be able to attend English courses this semester.

Please don’t forget to bring a set of headphones with you!

Description of the Placement Test
There are a total of 100 questions in the test. The questions slowly become harder in the later parts of the test. The time limit for the placement test is 60 minutes but students can submit the test earlier if they have finished. Students can return to any part of the test to check their answers at any point before they submit their test.

Test Results
No certificate will be issued for the completion of a placement test. The test cannot be “passed” or “failed”. Instead, after the evaluation of the test, the results will be posted on the following day in the Language Center and on the Language Center website with a score out of 100 and your CEFR level (B1, B2 etc.). When you have the confirmation of your CEFR level, you can register for a course at the correct level.

If you have taken a course in general English, you do not have to take a placement test again. If you are a student of Anglistik/English and American Studies, you do not have to take this placement test at all!

Results of the test are valid for four semesters.

Additionally, students should register in FlexNow under Englisch: HaF Placement Test for one of the following test dates:

1) Wednesday, 11.10.2017 12:00-14:00 hrs, WE5/04.014
2) Friday, 13.10.2017 10:00-12:00 hrs, RZ/00.04
3) Tuesday, 17.10.2017 16:00-18:00 hrs, RZ/00.06
