Journal Club

Gli incontri del Journal Club si tengono il lunedì, a partire dalle ore 13.40, in Aula Rosino.
Tutti sono invitati a partecipare.

Alla pagina English Pronunciation si trovano alcune regole essenziali di grammatica, e molti termini scientifici la cui pronuncia viene spesso sbagliata durante gli incontri del Journal Club. I dottorandi sono invitati a consultarla per migliorare la chiarezza della loro esposizione.
