English and its Social Context

This module is only available to exchange students whose mother tongue is not English. It is designed specifically for Erasmus Exchange students but is open to international students studying for Durham degrees with departmental agreement. Students must speak English to a level equivalent to IELTS 6.0 or above.

The module is an advanced language and contextual-based course that will help students achieve proficiency in English while obtaining a greater understanding of how the language is used internationally by the media to express issues of current concern. Students will also engage with a local use of English in their immediate environment and will obtain a greater understanding of contemporary British Society and how it impacts upon language.
