TEACHING IN ENGLISH
EMI (English as the Medium of Instruction) has led NRU HSE to implement the use of English in teaching different subjects. It takes into account the institution`s language policy and the programs which offer subjects in English, as well as the needs and benefits of the teachers and students. The use of English is increasing in tertiary education. The concept of teaching content in another language, other than that of the students’, has existed since the past century. But its study has not showed how to progress in these subjects. So, it was necessary to collect qualitative and quantitative data by means of questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. Questionnaire data and feedback from students taking such classes at NRU HSE shed light on problems involved with EMI classes. The findings of this needs analysis that was carried out in this paper can help to create an action plan that will include training schemes to foster internationalization. The report concludes with practical recommendations for language support activity and improved English language abilities.
