ELL 113 - Intermediate Listening and Speaking

4.00 credits.
The focus of this course is on listening and speaking in academic and social settings. Students will learn to distinguish speaker’s intentions, identify important spoken information from a variety of contexts (lecture, video, audio), infer meaning of unfamiliar words or phrases from the context of the conversation, and respond appropriately to spoken requests. Students will also learn to articulate clearly, infer whether their listener comprehends their speech, and make adjustments where needed to engage successfully in conversation. Students will also gain experience taking notes from oral presentations and video. Credits are not applicable to the 125 required for graduation with a bachelor’s degree. Fall semester.
