Do you find your reading ability is better than your speaking ability? Do you find it difficult to strike up a conversation with native speakers of English? Then this is the right course for you.
Every week students learn to talk about a topic that relates to their lives. Students learn to listen carefully, think critically, ask questions and express themselves clearly. Critical thinking, useful patterns, tips of pronunciation and communication etiquette will be covered. Through interesting learning activities and role playing, students learn to converse in English more fluently and confidently. You are not qualified to take this course if you belong to one of the following kinds of students: You have already passed intermediate GEPT or equivalent exam, your high school used English as the medium of instruction, your country used English in daily communication, or your English proficiency is intermediate level (CEFR B1) or above.
The SENM program is a student-centered module-based program which offers students choices and small, interactive classes. The program encourages students to tailor their English learning to their specific needs and interests by offering four semester-based modules: Career and Profession, Daily Communication, Multiculturalism, and Self-Expression Skills. Additionally, within each of the four modules, there are different themes, or topics, around which each course‘s curriculum is built. Each SENM student can choose two different module courses in one academic year according to their needs and interests. The program’s small class size (no more than 25 students) means that a variety of class activities such as discussions, role plays, and presentations are an integral part of the program.
This specific course belongs to the Daily Communication Module. This module emphasizes real-life English for effective communication. It provides conversation models and practices for a variety of common scenarios in everyday life. Apart from daily-life vocabulary, frequently-used colloquial and idiomatic expressions are the two major language components covered.
On completion of the course, students should be able to
1) use effectively the vocabulary and expressions acquired in the course to address daily-life topics;
2) use spontaneously the conversation strategies acquired in the course to initiate, sustain, and end communication;
3) communicate with others effectively in various daily-life situations; and
4) express themselves in English more confidently.
