|The Faculty of Environmental and Symbiotic Sciences offers Basic English II (BE II) to its first-year students. BE II will build on the skills students acquired from BE I and will focus on building students' communication skills, including learning basic vocabulary, speaking and listening, but also reading and writing. Class time will be student-centered, and students will be expected to use English in the classroom. Homework will include preparation for class time and activities to enhance students' personal learning.|
<Ostman> This class will include practice of the four basic skills through the use of in-class questionnaires and discussion.
<Cairns> The main objectives of this course are to help students improve their basic speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Class time will be used for individual, pair and group work. Homework will be assigned
|Basic English II (BE II) builds on first-year students' first-semester university English abilities. BE II will help students improve their vocabulary, especially the most frequent words they will meet in English. Students will communicate in English with their classmates and teachers. Students will also have opportunities to improve their reading and writing skills. Students completing BE II will have the ability to communicate with anyone about basic topics in English.|
By the end of this course students should:
1) Be able to design and complete questionnaires on various subjects.
2) Be able to use questionnaires to conduct interviews and discussions with other students.
<Cairns> This class will start with vocabulary meaning and usage practice, followed by pair/group topical controlled conversations and ending with question and answer building practice.
|<Ostman> Class attendance and participation are critical to achieving a high score in this class. Students must also show a willingness to work together with other students in creating questionnaires and conducting follow-up interviews and discussions.|
<Cairns> Because most of the work will be done within the scheduled class time, students' attendance is very important. Students are responsible for coming to class on time, participating in class activities with the teacher and other students and doing homework on time. It is an ALL ENGLISH class. Therefore, participating students will be assessed in this regard in their final grade. In short, you must show that you are attempting to do this course using English as the operative language.
