Today’s 21st century work and learning environments demand an accurate, fluent, and flexible range of contextually appropriate communication skills. This course develops students’ capacity to communicate with advanced fluency and accuracy in English, to meet the more complex communication demands of tertiary studies, in both face to face and digital environments (at CEFR C1, IELTS 7.5, Pearson 73, or TOEFL iBT 105). It also aims to enable students to meet future registration requirements of a range of professional disciplines, and to allow them to engage with the academic requirements of a range of USQ degree programs.
In this course, activities in English have been organised from an integrated communicative language teaching approach for the development of advanced academic reading, writing, listening, and speaking processes, purposes, attitudes, and strategies. Students should develop a comfortable and flexible command of the English language to support professional and confident expression of `voice' and to manage the comprehension, construction and delivery of a very wide range of texts and academic topics for both technical, academic, and social purposes in his/her field of specialisation. Communicative English language activities are designed to develop students' capacity to integrate academic reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills with confidence and communicate meaning in spoken and written interactions with control. Special focus is given to developing the precision and efficiency of a students' English language skills to an advanced level through emphasis on enabling skills such as grammar, oral fluency, pronunciation, spelling, vocabulary, coherence and cohesion, and test taking strategies.
