A Welcome from Dr Libor Štěpánek, the Masaryk University Language Centre Director
Welcome to The Academic Skills in English Summer School which offers you a highly professional language development experience at Masaryk University. The course is carefully structured to give you a unique learning and study experience of an English Summer School in the Centre of Brno. A group of international and Masaryk University experts will provide you with an opportunity to develop an understanding of ways to approach teaching in university programmes delivered through the medium of English. Those five days will help you to get practical insight into how to use specific tools and techniques inside the classroom, how to develop and adjust materials, how to make students consciously aware of the English language in their fields or how to be effective in communication in the international academic environment.
Your days will consist of stimulating and informative seminars which will be combined with interactive and highly practical workshops. In three distinct sessions each day, you will have a chance to interact, discuss, practise and reflect on your English language and teaching practice with your university colleagues. You may also discover and explore new areas of academic skills in English which you have perhaps not had the chance to focus on before.
The Summer School will also give you an opportunity to get to know Brno and the region, to professionally network and make new friends or simply enjoy a special learning experience in a beautiful atmosphere of Masaryk University.
