Course description and aims

All of the “Oral Expression in English” courses are devoted to improving students' skills in speaking. Effective speaking also involves effective listening, so the classwork and homework in these courses require that students carry out both interactive speech and get engaged in listening exercises.

As a graduate-level elective course, Oral Expression in English 15 focuses on the improvement of oral communication skills – in other words, speaking with confidence and in such a way as to be understood, and active participation in conversations with a range of topics.

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.
