Advanced English 2 (AE 2) is an elective course for THU students whose English proficiencies have met the university’s English exit requirement. Students who wish to further strengthen their English skills or pursue higher degrees or join exchange programs abroad are strongly encouraged to take the course. It is a one semester course (0-3credits). The course aims to enhance students’ academic English. In this semester, it places more weight on reading and writing skills. Aside from academic English skills, this course will incorporate intercultural competence into the curriculum so as to broaden every student’s international perspectives and ability in culturally diverse learning contexts.
