Intermediate Listening & Speaking 2
ESL 035 is an intermediate listening and speaking course (Canadian Language Benchmarks 6), continuing on from ESL 034 and intended to complement ESL 032, although it can be taken independently if reading and writing is not a perceived student need or if the student has time constraints. The focus of the course is the comprehension of key words and details in extended exchanges or spoken texts as well as participation in a variety of complex activities or situations involving multiple purposes and participants (e.g. group work, discussions, debates) in the classroom and in informal, predictable social contacts outside the ESL class. The course concentrates on the process of communication and stresses the importance of communicative strategies and the functional use of English. It provides learners with functional phrases that they can incorporate into their active language as they interact with their classmates in pair or group work, as well as outside the classroom in daily life. Themes are relevant to the learners' personal lives as well as reflective of broader issues, such as communication, health and fitness, media, advertising and the environment.
