Students will also focus on the development of advanced communication skills. Attention is paid to cross-cultural issues and socio-cultural differences in the language classroom, and speech awareness in terms of fluency, delivery and elements of clarity.

In addition to completing independent learning tasks, students in this course will teach and present to the class as well as evaluate both the teaching and presentations of their peers.
