E-courses ValoP133: Lexico-grammatical analysis of Engish texts II
Course annotation The aim of the course is to give students an opportunity to improve their already acquired skills to read and analyse authentic texts in English, to work on these texts from lexical and grammatical aspects. Course objectives:
1) to help students improve their skill to read authentic texts in English, in particular, to understand and analyse different kinds of texts of different complexity levels in English; 2) to give students an opportunity to complement already learned lexis in English (words and their polysemy, synonyms, homonyms, antonyms, phraseology) thus enriching their vocabulary and ensuring that they know how to use new lexis in different real life contexts (formal and informal);
3) to give students an opportunity to work with different dictionaries.

Results In the due course of studies students continue to work on their previously formed idea of the variety of texts in English both from lexical and grammatical aspects.
If students master the course successfully, they will be able to show:
1)Academic competences:
deeper knowledge and understanding of the use of English in texts of different styles and contexts; improved skills to analyze, synthesize and evaluate the essence of different texts and to give their evaluation and conclusions for them.
2)Professional competences:
improved skills to read authentic texts in English; understanding of how to use their skills practically; an ability to analyse these texts from lexical and grammatical aspects; enriched vocabulary and understanding of how to use new words in different contexts (formal and informal); developed understanding of how to choose the best dictionaries for their work taking into account text type and tasks; an ability to use them effectively.
