Welcome to Week 2

Welcome back.

Congratulations on completing Week 1 of English for Academic Study. Last week you looked at some of the key vocabulary associated with being a successful student in the UK.

This week we will start to think about what life at university will be like. How will you be taught? Will it differ from the education system in your country?

Through this week’s activities you will:

  • build your own vocabulary log of key terms
  • explore the structure of definitions
  • practise key English language and grammar features
  • write a short letter to a friend explaining what you have learned and provide feedback to your fellow learners about their work.

This week you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions that you still have in Step 2.21. Gareth Jones will answer your questions in a short video at the end of the week.

Remember if there is anything you are having difficulty with, you should review the previous steps carefully and check the comments to try to find answers to your questions.

The next activity will introduce some of the key terms you will come across at university in the UK and Omar will explain what he learned on his student journey.
