Course description and aims

“Oral Expression in English” courses are devoted to improving students’ skills in speaking. Apart from the context of giving presentations, effective speaking also involves effective listening, so the classwork and homework in these courses require students engaged in speech and listening exercises.
As a graduate-level elective course, Oral Expression in English G IV is offered during the spring vacation as an intensive course, and focuses on the improvement of oral communication skills – in other words, speaking with confidence and in such a way as to have them understood, and active participation in conversations with a range of topics.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to speak for several minutes by themselves or in dialogues on a range of topics, paying attention to their own pronunciation issues.

Class flow

This five-day intensive course is designed for students looking for a forum that will allow them to practice and enhance both their English speaking and presentation skills. It will be student-centered and active participation will be expected. Students will be presented with various topics designed to utilize and boost their critical thinking skills through discussion & debate. They will also be required to make daily presentations (individually and in groups). Vocabulary building and active listening will be critical components of the course.
