This module aims to develop students’ competence in English in terms of writing, reading, speaking and listening skills. As the lecture is addressed to master 1 students of translation, the module purports to give them the necessary tools to extend their reading skill and acquire new areas of knowledge related –not exhaustively- to cultural and communication aspects of the language. It also purports to enhance their academic writing and their capacity to summarize, synthesize, analyze, paraphrase, and criticize written and spoken materials and use them thoughtfully for their own research work. While the course is tailored around advanced skills, some grammatical notions are deemed necessary to tackle to consolidate students’ linguistic competence.
