ESL 003b - Intermediate Listening and Speaking in English II

Semester Hours: 0
This course is designed for non-native English speaking students with intermediate-mid oral and listening proficiency as defined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines to enhance their interpretive listening and viewing skills, and interpersonal and presentational oral skills.  This course focuses on effective strategies for listening to oral presentations, participating in classroom and general academic discourse, giving presentations, and leading discussions.  Students will also watch local and national news to promote discussion about the news and the different perspectives embedded in news broadcasts.  At the end of the class, students will be able to understand longer spoken texts supported with visual cues (i.e., PowerPoint presentations and video texts) and will be able to provide spoken narrations and descriptions in all time frames in paragraph-length discourse with complex syntax in rehearsed topic areas.  By the end of the course, students will improve their listening and speaking skills to the intermediate-high level (ACTFL).

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
