This is a high intermediate level English Speaking and Listening course designed, based on college-level topics and skills, to enhance students’ listening and speaking ability. To improve listening skills, students will be trained to apply useful strategies, such as note-taking, listening for main ideas and specific information, using context clues, to diverse listening selections covering a wide range of issues and topics. A focus on vocabulary development and functional language will allow students to build a larger vocabulary and increase the size of their idiomatic expressions repertoire. Topics pertaining to the listening selections will be integrated to in-class speaking practices in order to develop students’ communication skills. Oral presentation and group work are required to meet these ends.
