AIAS 522/5152 - Academic Listening and Speaking (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
  and  

Description
This course fosters and further develops the students’ ability to understand the main ideas and most details of connected academic and discourse in a variety of fields. It does so by teaching strategies to sustain both comprehension and delivery of propositionally and linguistically complex extended aural/oral discourse. These include training students to recognize and use cohesive devices signaling the sequence of thought in a given text, enabling them to follow MSA-ECA code-switching and code-mixing patterns, as well as sensitizing them to the socio-cultural nuances embedded in the spoken message.

When Offered
Offered in spring.
