ESL 1080 - Classroom and Campus Conversational Skills


This course prepares students to fully participate in the academic classroom. The course focuses on active listening, note-taking skills/strategies, and prepares students to be in classrooms with native-speaking instructors. Speaking objectives include engaging in meaningful dialogues where source material is used to support discussions.  Students will prepare and present a variety of academic, trade, and content presentations. Understanding and using complex grammatical structures, ie conditionals and perfect tenses; speaking about abstract ideas or non-tangible items; and expressing one’s own opinion/thought process, are essential aspects of this course. Credits: 4 Courses under the ESL prefix do not count towards an undergraduate degree.
