Expansion of the collaboration with John Abbott College (Montreal, Canada) – Advanced 2 course in EPIC
We are delighted to announce that our collaboration with John Abbott College (Montreal, Canada) has expanded this year. In the fall semester 2021-2022 we offered our first brand new Advanced 2 (online) course in the EPIC (English for Purposes of International Communication) department, led by Ms. Irena Levy. Our students had the opportunity to develop, foster and practice their debating skills while preparing to argue the affirmative and negative side of the debate along with their Canadian peers. In addition, this collaborative project focused on developing students’ critical thinking and their ability to evaluate and respond to different arguments and claims. Finally, this course helped our students expand their general and specialized vocabularies for reading, writing and speaking. We look forward to meeting our Canadian partners in the Spring semester.
