FLI-3701A2 Listening and Speaking for AP - B

This INTERMEDIATE level content-based course will focus on developing LISTENING and SPEAKING English skills necessary to succeed in academic settings. Assignments will emphasize critical thinking and integrative skill development through listening and speaking activities using high-interest content materials. Listening and speaking strategies and practice activities will be centered on authentic recordings from "person on the street" interviews, social conversations, radio programs and university lectures. Students will listen to audio and view video recordings, acquire information about an academic content topic, take notes, participate and lead small group discussions and learn how to organize ideas and deliver presentations. The course will address common pronunciation challenges in American English but does not focus on pronunciation. The course utilizes a content-based language teaching approach, which means students will use English to communicate knowledge and ideas about a variety of academic content topics like anthropology, art, biology, business, ecology, economics, history, literature, psychology and sociology. Students are expected to complete all homework assignments on time. The course is designed for intermediate level students.
