In the frame of the EDUU project – WP 2, a training course was held in Qadisiyah University between the 23rd of September and the 18th of October 2018.


The course (English Language for Archaeology) was delivered by Ms. Asma Abdul Ameer Alsabah and Mr. Dhurgham Mageed Andzaid, with the support of Prof. Abbas Al-Hussainy. The lessons were attended by students, researchers, professors from the College of Archaeology, and State Board of Antiquities and Heritage (SBAH) officials. The total length of the course was 4 weeks.

The aim of the course was that of strengthening the participants’ English language skills, in order to make them reach an A2 ability level (according on the European Framework Reference). At the end of the course, students, researchers and professors are enabled to use English with less hesitation and with a minimum comprehension mistakes.

The course was structured on the basis of a data collection, carried out on the first day of the course, which led to add more teaching materials and topics, as to maximise the benefits students would have gained.

Among the main topics and exercises, there were:

-       Writing of formal and informal emails.

-       Writing of short reports.

-       Writing of academic presentations.

-       In-depth analysis on terminology related to archaeology.

-       Hints at some cultural issues and customs of foreign countries.

The course was organized into frontal lectures and practical session. The course ended with a computer based test.
