In addition to general-language topics, such as profession and studies, other topics including the language of science, presentation skills, subject-specific texts and communication at university are covered. Grammatical structures are consolidated systematically and other relevant structures such as Passive voice, Nominal clauses and Adverbial clauses, Subjunctive I and II as well as Infinitive constructions contribute to expanding the scope.
