Are you interested in art and humanities? Have you been learning English for a long time but feel that you do not have enough confidence to survive in this specialized context? Would you like to learn the necessary strategies and skills?
English for Art and Humanities has been especially designed for university students or professionals who would like to use and improve their English in areas such as history, art history, literature, film and media and language. This book integrates practice on the four language skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing) and will offer you the opportunity to benefit not only professionally but also at a social and emotional level. An important aspect that has been developed is acquiring intercultural competence in a globalized world.
Our approach has been a very practical one based on the different tasks that you may encounter in various specialized contexts: teaching, research, dealing with artistic and multimedia projects, art galleries, museums, conservation, libraries, etc. You will learn to carry out tasks such as commenting on a work of art, writing a literary review, providing conservation advice, advertising a product or service and writing your own curriculum vitae, "bio", or cover letter.
The book is accompanied by a CD in which you will be able to listen to authentic material ranging from poems, speeches or biographical data to an oral presentation.
