Synopsis

In this course, activities in English have been organised from an integrated communicative language teaching approach for academic reading, writing, listening, and speaking processes, purposes, attitudes, and strategies. Students' command of the English language should develop to a degree that supports the use of effective, simple English and enables the students to begin to manage the comprehension, construction and delivery of a range of familiar academic texts for routine purposes and audiences. Communicative English language activities are designed to develop students' capacity to integrate academic reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills reliably with some confidence at intermediate level. Special focus is given to developing the precision and efficiency of a students' English language skills in specific familiar contexts to an early intermediate level through emphasis on enabling skills such as grammar, oral fluency, pronunciation, spelling, vocabulary, coherence and cohesion, and test taking strategies.
