Course Details

This course focuses on improving students' overall communicative ability in both informal and formal language tasks such as making recommendations, collaborating and compromising on plans in different time frames, and responding to hypothetical questions. Students will work on advanced skills such as giving presentations, reading longer texts for both main ideas and key details, taking notes from extended spoken narratives, and writing well-structured problem-solution papers.

The course combines speaking, reading, and writing practice, along with exercises to build vocabulary needed to set and achieve goals, describe places and people in detail, discus technological change, and the natural environment. Writing assignments include autobiographical statements, formal emails, summaries, and a short problem-solution paper.
