AIT Language center

This continuation of the English Communication Skills courses will apply your writing and presentation skills to a research project.  Students will also learn first-hand about writing in technical fields from guest lecturers who will share their experiences and opinions.


This course is aimed at:

- those students with an AIT-EET score of 5.5 who are newly enrolled students and have not taken any EL courses before 

- those students who have previously taken EL 19 but did not pass the course. 

This course is aimed at those students who have already taken EL 13 or EL 15 in the past. 



The LC Bridging Program aims to prepare new AIT applicants with the academic and English language skills for successful participation on the MA and PhD  programs. 

This course helps students understand the specific procedures used in conducting research, and in explaining the reasons for choosing a particular method.  The activities in this course will enable students to link their research questions and the purpose of doing research with the research approach and methods selected.

This course aims to help you develop your writing skills towards producing well-organized research papers .  The structure of this course is flexible and will be adapted based on the strengths and weaknesses of each group.  Exercises, assignments and other  writing resources are available online each week,  and every student is expected to accomplish all of them before coming to class.

Online participation and discussions are strongly encouraged.  A student can create a topic or question for all of us to engage in.  You can also update us on any news related to our topics or those that might be of interest to other participants.  Suggestions on how to improve this course and other features of this system will also be useful.  Please feel free to send us a message.

This course aims to prepare students in planning and justifying their research project. In the first half of the course, students will learn how to choose a topic, specify the focus of their research, develop the research questions and identify the key concepts that are essential in their planned research.   Online discussions and peer reviews will also be incorporated using Moodle.  This will provide students with the opportunity to discuss their writing, get feedback, and contribute their views and resources to others. Every student will obtain the necessary support in drafting the three chapters required in a thesis proposal; namely, the introduction, literature review and research methodology.

The second half of the course will be devoted to finalizing the remaining chapters of the research.  Students will learn how to summarize and present  their results by using appropriate tables, charts or other figures, and to explain their meaning and importance in the Discussion Section.  The limitations of the findings and some possible future improvements on the research will have to be included in the section. Then, summing up in the Conclusion.
