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.
The English Language Center is currently teaching all classes in person. HOWEVER, ALL students attending classes in-person must be fully vaccinated, unless Georgetown has granted them a medical or religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement. We will continue to monitor public health guidelines to ensure full safety and compliance. For more information, please refer to Georgetown’s resource page on COVID-19 vaccines.
