ESL 92 Speaking Fluency Development

(2)
This is a student-centered course which utilizes interactive tasks to practice key aspects of speaking fluency: quantity of language produced, speed, speaking without long awkward pauses, the use of filters and discourse markers. Students will also learn common conversation habits: such as backchanneling, turn-taking, topic shifting and negotiating for meaning. Students will leave this course with the ability to express their ideas, thoughts and opinions more clearly and with greater confidence in their communicative competence.
