In this class, we will work on communicative and speech-making practices, again concentrating on rhetorical considerations. You will also learn how to listen to others’ opinions and arguments, in order to identify what other people think in relation to what you think. For this, we need to go beyond listening for “just” the main idea to listening with a mind that’s both open and critical--open to be willing to hear other opinions and experiences, and critical to analyze and test what is being said according to our own knowledge and experience.
Comp�Oral II builds on the English-language skills developed in Comp�Oral I.

The course will continue to stress accuracy in speaking and writing and will emphasize skills and strategies to improve your ability to communicate in English. You will also learn how to analyze and strengthen your own and your classmates� written and spoken English. The general goal of the course is to increase your academic English language proficiency to the high�intermediate level in speaking and writing.
