ESL 109 - American Academic Culture Outside the Classroom

Semester Hours: 1 s.h.
This course will focus on the nature of university peer interactions outside the classroom, with learning tasks focused on informal social interactions in the context of student clubs and organizations.  Learning tasks will help students move from advanced-low proficiency toward advanced-high proficiency (ACTFL).  The course is designed to develop nonnative speaker oral and listening skills relevant to establishing and maintaining direct conversation and communication in English. It focuses on a range of skills, including improving listening comprehension, participating in discussions and debates, understanding conversational strategies, giving group presentations, and asking and answering questions.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Advanced low-proficiency in listening and speaking as defined by the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines (may be demonstrated by successful completion of ESL 004b ).
