Reading & Writing

This course essentially emphasizes skills in reading, critical thinking, and writing. It is designed to enhance the academic reading skills for successful reading ability as required in college-level courses. Emphasis is placed on strategies for effective reading and the utilization of these strategies to improve comprehension, analytical skills, and overall reading speed. 

The course also aims at expanding students’ vocabulary range and strengthening their abilities to use different strategies to deduce the meaning of unknown words. They become better writers through different types of writing assignments that require them to apply language, grammar, and content in a structured and coherent way. 

Listening & Speaking

This course essentially emphasizes listening, speaking and critical thinking skills with an additional focus on academic vocabulary and skills. Students become better listeners through listening to authentic radio reports, interviews, lectures and other genres and practicing various listening strategies. They become better thinkers through activities that prompt them to make inferences. And finally, they become better communicators through extended speaking tasks that require them to use the vocabulary and grammar they have learned in both rehearsed and extemporaneous speeches.

Language Use

This course aims to develop students’ deeper awareness of grammar points and provides them with a wider practice of accurate, meaningful and appropriate application of those points in various contexts. Practice is communicative and includes both oral and written work, designed to reinforce and perfect students’ grammar usage.
