Course Description: This is a basic English as a Second Language course designed to enhance and develop the listening comprehension of nonnative speakers of English.  Through class conversations, individual and group listening exercises and lab work, students will be exposed to conversations and spoken narratives, and asked to demonstrate an understanding of the basic messages communicated through these texts.  Students will also receive practice in selective listening as they are asked to listen more discriminately to the more formal aspects of the language. All class sessions will be conducted in English.

Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:

  1. restate basic messages communicated through short spoken narratives and conversations;
  2. respond appropriately when asked questions related to the task at hand; and
  3. identify language elements in listening discrimination activities.
