Spoken English Seminar
Spoken English Seminar

This is a short course that aims at developing speaking skills. It is a five-week fee-based course that meets twice a week for a total of ten hours. This seminar is designed to graduate and professional students who speak English as a second language. Students will study several aspects of spoken English learning strategies to improve their speaking skills. The topics covered include pronunciation, intonation, rhythm, presentation and group discussion skills, vocabulary, and idioms. Although the course has strong emphasis on academic English, attention is also given to different registers of the language because of the diverse social settings the students need to respond to.
