General English Language Course (Intermediate)
The intermediate level of the English Language Course is designed to develop both oral and written communication skills.This would be achieved by emphasis on using and not analyzing the language through processes of exploration, and discussion of certain topics (cultural, educational, scientific and others) strengthening, meanwhile,the independent analytical and critical thinking among students.
Another main crucial objective is to internalize the underlying structures of the language through series of supplementary and supporting tasks and activities.
Students will be able to:
- Confidently use all simple tenses
- Handle everyday conversations
- Can grammatically cover all parts of speech
At the end of the course the students are expected to do (or reveal) the following as evaluated by the faculty in the department:
- Acquire the basics of the spoken language with attempts to practice intensively on it through various processes of oral communication.
- Develop independent learning.
- Develop the analytical and critical thinking.
- Use of IT devices in presentations.
Teachers bear in mind that a learner-centered method and not a teacher-centered is to be applied in order to achieve the objectives given above. Consequently, students are given most of the time in class to explore, practice and use the language.
Further, students are involved in a variety of activities and tasks prepared and designed by the teacher to fully cover the various parts of the topic in question. Teachers, however, are allowed to give some short grammatical notes when necessary to draw the students’ attention to the structures in use.
