Course Description

To be able to communicate successfully in a specific professional area, one needs general English as well as field-specific language and communication skills.  Accordingly, the course English in logistics 1 focuses on developing logistics and transport vocabulary and professional communication skills.  Lectures are dedicated to developing writing, speaking, listening and reading skills through the exploration of authentic materials and case studies. Vocabulary and communication skills are developed in the framework of the following topics: history and development of logistics, careers in logistics and modes of transport (road, rail, air and water).
Although the main focus of the course is development of professional vocabulary and communication skills, we will also revise and further develop knowledge and use of fundamental grammatical structures, including English verb tenses and adjectives and adverbs.
Vocabulary and skills gained in this course will prove useful to students who will engage in professional communication in organisations involved in international transport of goods and services or international business.
