Description: This course is designed to build a foundation in all four language skills – speaking, listening, reading, and writing – which are essential for academic success. Students will practice all language skills as well as grammar, pronunciation and idiomatic usage within a variety of thematic academic contexts. Emphasis will be placed on both accuracy and fluency, so that students will learn to express themselves more confidently in both formal and informal settings. Language skill building is integrated and reinforced among the four skill areas, and resources and materials will be shared, e.g., the reading text may be used in the writing or the speaking class.
