- General and detailed comprehension of course-specific specialist texts
- Techniques for taking notes
- Summarizing texts
- Describing for example, program actions, program functions, instructions, etc.
- Cause-effect relationships
In addition, we will work on:
- Repeating relevant grammatical structures
