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


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.
