ESL 024 Listening/Speaking II
ESL Listening/Speaking II will assist ESL students in improving their academic listening and speaking skills through the observation and exposure to a variety of authentic listening and speaking situations – radio programs, songs, discussions, role play, real life occurrences, and speeches. Students have the opportunity to observe undergraduate courses in order to begin self-assessing their academic listening skills and gain exposure to the undergraduate classroom. To improve pronunciation, students work with American Speechsounds software on phonetic sounds at word level. The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is reviewed to assist with pronunciation learning. The study of intonation complements the students’ study of pronunciation.
