EAP7307 Academic Speaking and Listening

Units : 2
Faculty or Section : Open Access College
School or Department : Open Access College


In this course, speaking and listening have been organised around skills that students need to develop at this level to cope with the academic language encountered in a university preparation course. Students perform a variety of tasks which require them to apply appropriate skills. Speaking is designed to prepare students for more formal discussions and to equip them with higher level functional language such as checking understanding, expressing an opinion, making suggestions and complaints. Listening provides opportunities for the students to know when and how skills such as listening for specific information, listening for gist and listening for main ideas and supporting details can be applied.
