The main areas of focus on this oral communication course include: delivering presentations, participating in group discussions and pronunciation activities. Regular interaction with interesting and engaging reading and listening texts will provide the ideal platform in which to develop your speaking skills, in terms of your fluency, accuracy and pronunciation. We will also explore and review key areas of grammar and vocabulary in context so that you will have a better idea about what language to use in different situations. Along the way you will also be encouraged to develop your critical thinking skills and to express your ideas more effectively and efficiently, across a range of academic disciplines.
