Oral Prodcution and Comprehension
This class focuses entirely on the development of oral production and comprehension skills. We will study audio-visual documents and texts, which will enable us to learn new vocabulary. We will have daily group and class discussions led mostly by students. Through the use of various tasks, we will achieve a high level of interaction among students while working on group projects and presentations. We will also focus on phonetics and pronunciation. Assignments will consist in reading texts and researching new vocabulary, as well as in preparing oral presentations each week. Memorization of vocabulary will be required for tests. There will be no writing assignments.
