Fall Semester, 10-week course (1 Credit)
Develop oral fluency and communication skills for interacting in both formal and informal academic contexts. Learn language and discourse strategies needed to:
- Ask and respond to questions
- Express and elicit opinions
- Respond to opposing viewpoints
- Maintain interactions in a way that is satisfying for both the speaker and the listener
Practice these via outside-of-class assigned interviews with native speakers, in-class discussions and (panel) presentations and other impromptu speaking activities.
