Do you hate grammar, worry what to say and write in business and social situations and want to understand better what you hear and read?  You’re not alone. Start your detox on this integrated skills course; get some answers to your language questions and time to practice your skills.

ORAL COMMUNICATION PRACTICE | 01:00 – 03:00         

Gain confidence in basic communication skills and the verbal exchange of ideas in both formal and informal settings. Practice with everyday phrases and employ the suitable level of discourse to collect and clarify information, interview effectively, question and produce evidence, and persuade and convince in most common situations. Review pronunciation including stress, intonation, and emphasis appropriate to the occasion.

ENGLISH GRAMMAR REVIEW | 01:00 – 03:00                      

Improve comprehension and fluency in English by reviewing some of the grammar concepts that new English learners find most confusing, such as verb tenses and prepositions. Oral and written exercises as well as games and music will be used in class.

TRUE STORIES AND BEYOND  | 03:30 – 05:30                                                           

Sharpen reading, vocabulary building, and speaking skills by reading a variety of non-fiction stories, including unusual and engaging tales about life experiences. These readings will serve as a basis to help students generate their own biographical stories, which will be presented orally in class.
