The aim of this course is to raise learners’ awareness of referencing conventions used in university courses. The lesson will highlight the problem of plagiarism as well. There is a comprehension quiz, vocabulary exercise and transcript. This course covers CEFR B1+ competencies in terms of listening comprehension: “Understanding straightforward information about study or work related topics, identifying both general messages and specific details, provided people speak clearly in a familiar accent” (CEFR 2008).
