Synopsis

This course will develop speaking and listening skills in an academic context, focusing on three typical university activities; oral presentations, group discussions, and listening to lectures. It will build on the skills gained by these students in prior English studies, generally at O Level. Students will develop their abilities to give oral presentations to the academic standard required by USQ, improve their ability to discuss academic readings in a group situation, and expand their ability to give an oral presentation using academic structure. There is a focus on skill acquisition within the contexts of English-language development. Learning opportunities involve online group discussions based on academic readings, online presentations, and the chance to practise note-taking to online academic lectures.
