Adv Oral Expression & Pronun

THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT AT MILLS CAMPUS

The purpose of this course is to help advanced students develop their conversational and pronunciation skills, by means of various original materials and through a wide array of challenging oral production activities.
By working on the linguistic and socio-cultural dimensions of a variety of useful communicative speech situations, students will acquire and consolidate a more sophisticated and lasting proficiency in oral expression. Each class will include systematic work on pronunciation, carefully integrated into the program of the day or the week; practice & correction of French pronunciation, rhythm, and intonation through a wide array of oral exercises (discrimination, repetition, dialogues, in-situation activities...). In all aspects of the course, improving communicative ability will be the priority. A mid-session individual interview will allow students to measure their progress and receive customized suggestions to maximize their oral performance.
