Course Content

This course aims to develop students listening and pronunciation skills while helping them in gaining confidence in oral communication in English. To develop students listening skills and to sensitize them towards diverse varieties of English language spoken around the world, samples of language produced in academic and natural settings will be used as listening materials. Through classroom activities and tasks, basic listening skills such as getting the gist of a listening text and guessing meaning from context, as well as higher level listening skills and strategies such as note-taking, predicting, extracting specific and detailed information will be developed. Stress, intonation, and conventions in oral communication contexts in English will also be developed by means of the activities and tasks in this course.
