|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.|
The main objectives of this course will be to help students identify and correct errors made in topical group conversations and to systematically apply what is learned to further improve conversations through a system of feedback.
A personal vocabulary building component will exist in this course as learned in the previous year.
This course uses communicative activities in pairs and small groups to expand on students' knowledge of grammar, syntactic structure, and communicative competence. Frequent brainstorming in groups and class sharing of information in presentations will ensure that comprehension and confidence are enhanced and maintained..
|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.|
Upon completion of this course, students will have a clearer understanding of common conversation grammar errors, as well as an affirmation of English grammar skills previously acquired.
They will also be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of the construction of a 5-paragraph essay.
Students will also be able to hand-write in English cursive script.
Students should be able to form options, complete interview activities, and present on a topic in class, all using improved communication. They should be able to receive an improved TOEIC score, and be able to perform well on focused listening activities.
Students will be expected to participate in all activities fully and in English. Due to the nature of the course, a strong desire and interest in communicating personal ideas and opinions on a broad range of subjects in English will be an asset.
Vocabulary acquisition work will be a personal assignment and, therefore will be done on a daily basis at home. Quizzes will be carried out in class.
Students are responsible for coming to class on time, participating in class activities with the teacher and other students, and completing assignments independently. Students must come to class on time, speak English, complete all homework assignments, and participate actively in class.
This course will follow the university academic scheduling objectives and a complete course outline will be discussed on the first day of class.
