course description

short description (300-500 characters)

The aim of this course is to help students improve their communication skills, organization and strategies. Practice is given in the various ways in which a particular communication function can be realized to assist in making choices as to what one says and in thinking about the appropriateness of how one says it. Personal experiences and points of views on academic topics are exchanged and sensitive topics discussed; students are expected to maintain respect for other positions and experiences. Attention is given to complexity, accuracy and fluency, as well as oral use of academic vocabulary. The class requires students to record homework and exams, work individually or in small groups in sharing their ideas during informal discussion or in preparing presentations on various topics. Students are expected to complete both oral and written homework.
