The course aims to develop the student’s understanding of language structure and mastery of English grammar in both speech and writing. During this course, the student deepens their knowledge of grammar - both English grammar and in general. The course consists of two parts. The ability to analyse and understand the general structure of language is developed in the first part, "Basic Language Analysis". In the second part, "Applied Grammar", the focus is on proficiency in English, and the ability to understand and apply grammar rules of English. Written exercises are an important element in the language training.
