In this course students will familiarize themselves with the norms, textual dimensions and techniques of English essay writing by critically analysing selected essays in English and by writing extended essays of their own. There will be a focus on cultural, literary and political themes that relate to Britain. In addition to investigating potential differences in essay writing norms and academic styles between English and German, participants will be able to work upon and improve their own argumentative, reflective-discursive and descriptive style of writing, focusing in particular on structural, ideational and rhetorical appropriacy in different essay types.
Maximal 15 Teilnehmer.
