The teaching materials in this volume are designed for students of Political Science and related Social Science Studies at an upper-intermediate and advanced level of competence in English who need to develop the academic language and skills which will allow them to perform more effectively in their studies and participate in international programs at home and abroad. This textbook is the fruit of intense experimentation over the past several years by a group of language professors in an Academic English course which prepares undergraduate students in Political Science at the Luiss Guido Carli University for their final examination. It is also a response to the University’s growing internationalization and the increasing number of degree courses taught entirely in English.
