Fall & Winter Semesters (1 credit)
Develop the interactive speaking skills needed to more effectively participate in seminar-style discussions. Learn language and culturally appropriate elements needed for:
- Effective interactive communication skills, including how to actively listen
- Asking questions of clarification or seeking information
- Interrupting and holding the floor
- Offering your viewpoint, and then being able to elaborate on your ideas
Practice using these communicative elements in a variety of ongoing activities including student-led discussions that are videotaped for further reflection and analysis.
