    Inhalt

    This course offers students the opportunity to practice speaking and writing about sustainability goals in English in both personal and professional contexts. First in conversation and later in group work, students practice vocabulary related to sustainability. Students explore and record their own development by writing personal reflection pieces. Later they work in groups and examine a case study related to their field. Each group produces a podcast or delivers a presentation on their case. In the final assignment, students submit a piece of academic writing appropriate for their field. Throughout the course, students receive feedback on their use of language, including vocabulary, grammar and style.
