ASIANLAN 272 is a continuation of ASIANLAN 271. This continuing proficiency-based course is designed to refine and expand previously acquired language skills in culturally authentic contexts. The students will get opportunities to advance all four language skills in order to broaden their ability to communicate with native speakers on topics and themes such as travel, social and religious festivals and celebrations, etc. The focus will be a theme-based expansion of vocabulary, mastery of more complex structures, and limited contextual idiomatic expressions with outcomes measured in a variety of ways, including task-based activities that support effective communication. The interactive activities will be conducted in the target language. By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Carry out all communicative tasks from the previous semesters with greater ease and sophistication.
  • Talk about their lives, including immediate plans and hopes.
  • Talk about a trip or some other everyday event that happened in the recent past or that will happen soon.
  • Register reports and file complaints.
  • Describe and narrate social, cultural events and discuss issues.
