    Description

    3 ECTS

    COURSE ENROLLMENT:  Before enrolling, you have to do an Online Placement test and take an Oral Placement interview.  Detailed information on the language course enrollment procedure is on the Language Center website: Registration Unifr | Language Centre | University of Fribourg

    Overview:

    The aim of this course is to give advanced speakers of English an opportunity to improve their oral skills in a convivial atmosphere while exploring different perspectives on a range of intellectually challenging topics in both an academic context (research studies, literacy, etc.) as well as in broader contexts such as health care, education, environmental issues and human rights. The course will be interactive in nature requiring a high level of critical engagement. Students will have the opportunity to practice rhetorical skills during panel discussions and workshop style activities, as well as practice appropriate language required to perform specific functions. Students will have assigned readings/videos to prepare them for upcoming lessons.  Evaluated tasks consist of preparing and  giving mini-presentations focusing on different elements of presenting (transitioning smoothly between points, pausing, intonation, explaining graphics, use of rhetorical questions, etc.). There will also be a panel discussion.

    ATTENDANCE AND ASSESSMENT: Regular attendance is required. Excused absences can include things like public transport disruption, accident, family emergency, etc. This course is graded on a pass or fail basis. A certificate of achievement can be requested from the secretary’s office upon successful completion of the course.
