|The Faculty of Environmental and Symbiotic Sciences offers Basic English IV (BE IV) to its second-year students. BE IV will build on the skills students acquired from BE III and will complement BE I and BE II by focusing on basic vocabulary, reading and writing skills, but speaking and listening may also be included. Class time will be student-centered, and much of the material used will be found on the Internet. Students will learn basic computer skills that can be used for searching, evaluating, summarizing and commenting on Internet information. Homework will include preparation for class time and activities to enhance students' personal learning.|
This class is based around a series of themes and topics relevant in the modern world. Students will learn the basic vocabulary and phrases necessary to understand the subject before utilizing the Internet to research further and, finally, to present their findings.
|Basic English IV (BE IV) builds on second-year students' second-semester university English and Internet-using abilities. BE IV will help students use computers and the Internet to improve their communicative English skills. Basic vocabulary, reading and writing will all be emphasized. Students completing BE IV will have the ability to communicate with others in English about basic topics they read and write about on the Internet.|
Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Use the Internet to gather and organize information.
2. Discuss a wide range of modern-day issues.
3. Make a short presentation based on their research.
