The course is aimed at improving students' reading and speaking skills.

Students will learn to find and understand scientific texts on III year

psychology topics chosen by the course teacher.

They will also learn and apply the principles of good powerpoint presentation in a short presentation 

on an aspect of a topic covered in the readings presented during the course.

The course will focus on aspects of English lexico-grammar recurrent in

scientific papers and articles and that are particularly problematic for

mother tongue Italian speakers, including the use of the past tense,

modification and word order in noun groups and similarities and

differences.

projects.
