Первый в России учебный комплекс, способный научить студентов профессиональному английскому языку, погружая их в атмосферу будущей профессии. Оригинальный подход к подаче материала и нестандартное использование иллюстраций способствуют полному погружению в языковую среду. Авторская методика, проверенная на практике, состоит в изучении текстов из различных областей знаний и выполнении заданий по ним. Учебный комплекс состоит из двух книг: Книга для студентов и Книга для преподавателей. Книга для студентов содержит материалы только на английском языке. Это способствует всестороннему развитию учащихся и расширению языковых границ будущих специалистов. Тексты и упражнения систематизируют профессиональные знания, помогают овладеть аналитическим и критическим мышлением при разборе разнообразного материала. В Книге для преподавателей помимо ответов к заданиям и дополнительной информации предложены различные уровни обработки данного материала, что делает его доступным для всех заинтересованных в этом студентов и преподавателей. Уникальность учебного комплекса заключается в синтезе двух разнонаправленных методик изучения языка: обучение чтению академических аутентичных текстов сочетается с новаторскими упражнениями-ребусами, развивающими грамматическую языковую компетенцию. Издание рассчитано на учащихся и преподавателей гуманитарных вузов: политологических, социологических, филологических, исторических и философских факультетов, но также будет интересно и полезно всем, кто хочет не просто изучить язык в короткие сроки, но и попутно расширить свой кругозор.
‘Academic Skills through Cases in American Studies’ is aimed at ESL college students at the Intermediate-high through Advanced levels of language proficiency. It is designed around eight country-specific (U.S.) cases that develop academic skills tested on international exams. The book covers major topics in the areas of academic reading, speaking and writing. Thus, the targeted learning outcome is two-fold: 1) to explore topical issues in American studies and 2) to master key academic skills. The content of the articles in each unit is selected according to the language needs of students majoring in economics, sociology, political science, and the like. The book can be used both as a supplement to a course in American Studies or as a separate curriculum within an academic skills course.
