Our main aim is to meet the needs of first-year students of Filología Inglesa and to provide them with relevant practice
in the four linguistic skills so that they can perform adequately in their university studies.
Programa de Teoría
1. INTRODUCTION. Basic language description and issues. Grammar: syntax, lexicon, semantics and pragmatics.
Types of grammar: descriptive, prescriptive, pedagogical and "discourse" grammar. Advanced points of grammar.
2. SPEAKING SKILL. Practising oral ability through integrated skills: exploiting visual aids and texts for oral practise problem solving activities, pair work and group work activities-. Exploring spoken grammar in context: direct and
indirect speech, ellipsis, tails, heads, discourse markers. Collocations and collocational competence. Accuracy-focused
oral activities.
3. LISTENING SKILL. Listening and note-taking. Listening for the gist and for specific information (relevant points).
Task-oriented exercises : predicting problem solution or story endings and other kinds of open or closed tasks.
Information transfer exercises: completing grids, form/chart completion, labelling. Gap-filling exercises using dialogues,
prose passages, the news... Recognising discourse markers and cohesive devices. Understanding different intonation
patterns and uses of stress.
4. READING SKILL. Reading strategies: predicting, scanning, skimming, inferring, understanding main ideas and
assessing a writer´s purpose. Paragraph analysis: topic, main idea and supporting details. The importance of
cohesion in the interpretation of text. Patterns of organisation of texts: situation-problem-solution-evaluation; generalspecific; main facts-supporting details; hypothesis-evidence-conclusion. Silent reading: reading for meaning.
5. WRITING SKILL. Main functions of writing: description, definition, exemplification,classification, comparison and
contrast. Main uses of punctuation marks. Basic connectives: and, or, but, therefore, then. Organising a text:
coherence and cohesion (reference terms). Academic writing: note-taking, summarising, writing an essay. Parts of an
essay: introduction, body and conclusion. Writing an essay of argument. Personal and impersonal styles of argument.
