“Information Literacy” Workshop
American Center is glad to announce a new two-month course on Information Literacy. We get bombarded with multi-channelled information every day. More often than not, the pieces of information we consume are unfiltered, mutually contradictory and biased in a way to promote the author’s agenda. Even if we lack the time and skill to fact check everything that grabs our eyes, we can employ a range of linguistic and rhetorical analysis techniques that will empower us to tell the manipulation apart from reliability.
The course is aimed at:
-helping you evaluate the reliability of the information you consume on a daily basis;
-equipping you with techniques that will help you spot bias;
-familiarising you with the world of English speaking media;
-giving you an opportunity to practice English at a high level.
The course is led by Yulia Beymlina, a Fulbright program alumna and a Delta qualified teacher with a broad international experience.
