КУРС "Англійська мова для студентів-юристів"

КУРС "Англійська мова для студентів-юристів" (6)

Шановні студенти!

Здійснюється набір на курс «Англійська для студентів-юристів». Викладання курсу здійснюється професійним викладачем англійської мови із Великобританії Девідом Стоббзом за допомогою відеоконференції. Умови цьогорічного набору на курс є наступними (наводжу фрагмент листа п. Стоббза):

I've been somewhat disappointed by the rather sparse attendance at several of my teaching sessions this past year.  For exampIe, I spent a great deal of time preparing material for my two teaching sessions at the university during my visit to Kyiv in April, but only five or six students were present for the case study negotiation.session on 19th April.  This session gave students the opportunity to undertake some practical experience of negotiation, using their speaking skills.  I fully understand and accept that students will find it difficult to speak in English and will make mistakes, but I reasonably expect them to do their best to participate and to learn from the experience.

On several occasions, students have turned up for a teaching session, presumably to secure an attendance record, only to leave after a relatively short period.  I do not accept such device as a legitimate commitment to the teaching session.

Having regard to the foregoing, I would prefer that we have a newly registered group on the basis that any students who regularly attended previous teaching sessions can re-register for the new group.  The only disadvantage of such a measure would be that any students who'd attended previous teaching sessions would be repeating previous material.  However, this would be a form of revision which is always useful.  Therefore, my proposals are that:

1. A new group of at least 12 and no more than 24 students be registered for this year's teaching sessions on the strict understanding that they will endeavour to have an attendance record ofat least 85%throughout the academic year;

2. Students who registermust be competent in listening and spoken English toat leastintermediate level (IELTS Band 5.5), preferably upper-intermediate level or higher (IELTS Band 6 - 7);

3. A detailed attendance record will be kept and students will only qualify for attendance if they're present throughout the teaching session (with discretion to approve attendance in exceptional / valid circumstances where a student has good reason to leave the session no more than 15 minutes before the teaching session is due to finish);

4. Students who've fully attended at least 80% of teaching sessions this past year can re-register for teaching sessions to be held during the year 2011/12;

5. Students will take notes during each teaching session and will participate as fully as possible in discussions and question and answer tasks;

6. Any students who don't already have a copy of the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary will purchase a copy of this and will do their best to undertake study of vocabulary on a regular basis, using the Study Guidance Notes to be provided by me;

7. Students will be tested by me in April, 2012 and will be issued with a certificate of competence (graded as appropriate) provided they've achieved the appropriate attendance record.»

Бажаючі, що згодні відвідувати курс на перерахованих умовах, для участі у курсі до 12 вересня включно мають надіслати листа зі своїми контактними даними координатору курсу Георгію Соколянському (Ця електронна адреса захищена від спам-ботів. Вам потрібно увімкнути JavaScript, щоб побачити її.).

Заняття розпочнуться 13 вересня і проходитимуть з 14:00 до 15:00 в ауд. 204 щовівторка.

English for Law Students

Оголошується набір для участі у новому навчальному циклі курсу "English for Law Students", викладання в рамках якого здійснюватиме Давід Стоббз. Заняття проводитимуться, починаючи з 15 лютого, протягом семестру раз на два тижні за допомогою технології цифрової відеоконференції. Для запису на курс необхідно до 25 січня 2011 року направити листа на адресу Ця електронна адреса захищена від спам-ботів. Вам потрібно увімкнути JavaScript, щоб побачити її.. На жаль, із числа учасників, які записалися на поточний цикл, значна кількість поставилася до курсу недобросовісно і відвідувала його нерегулярно. У зв’язку із цим п. Стоббз висунув певні умови участі у курсі у новому циклі:

  1. An average of twelve to fifteen students will commit themselves to regular attendance at each teaching session.  Attendance on a 'pick and  choose' basis will no longer be permitted.
  2. Students will undertake to study lexis on a regular basis.  This would involve them purchasing a Cambridge Advanced Learner's (monolingual) Dictionary (currently costing only 120 Hrn. from the Trust's representative in Ukraine) or equivalent (such as the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary or Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English) and the Trust's recommended English-Ukrainian /Ukrainian-English bi-lingual dictionary (costing only 20 Hrn. from the  Trust's representative in Ukraine) and making use of the Vocabulary Record Sheet (produced without charge by the Trust).   In my experience, students are unlikely to develop their understanding of English and to expand their active vocabulary to any significant extent unless they study lexis on a regular basis.  I'll be willing to produce some vocabulary study notes for students (without charge), based on the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary, if sufficient interest is
    shown."

Звертаємо Вашу увагу на те, що курс безоплатний. Необхідну для курсу літературу Ви можете спробувати придбати з будь-яких джерел, проте придбати її в представника "Трасту" за собівартістю, вочевидь, буде дешевше і простіше.

Якщо заняття відвідуватиме менше 12 осіб, курс буде скасовано. І навпаки, якщо курс викликатиме інтерес студентів, періодичність занять може бути змінена на щотижневу. Тим учасникам, що успішно прослухають курс, буде видано сертифікат. Студенти, які запишуться на курс і не будуть його відвідувати без поважних причин або не будуть виконувати завдань, поставлених п. Стоббзом, будуть виключені з числа учасників курсу і не будуть допускатися до участі в будь-якому іншому міжнародному проекті, який здійснюється на юридичному факультеті.
