The objective of this course is further consolidation of linguistic competence of students as independent users of English and their progress on the scale of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF). Presenting and teaching subject specific vocabulary continues on the basis of textbook discipline-specific texts and a variety of authentic materials from both the written and spoken media, which should lead to a clearer construal of concepts underlying English political science terminology, as well as to raising students awareness of Croatian-English crosslinguistic overlapping, partial overlapping and discrepancies; organisation and scope of semantic fields and concepts codified by particular terms in the domain of politics and political science. Constant exposure to diverse authentic source-materials throughout the semester should contribute to students abilities: to understand most of television, radio and new media news, to attend discipline-specific lectures held in English by taking notes and to grasp at least a global meaning of professional English texts on politics. Progress in terms of students development of productive language skills, namely speaking and writing, as compared to the level they reached after the first semester, should be reflected in more structured oral expression, specifically the learners more autonomous and spontaneous use of syntactic patterns typical of oral presentations as well as in more accurate and coherent writing (e.g. using appropriate formal vocabulary and morphosyntactic structures typical of stylistically adequate academic writing).
