COM0111 Language and Communication


The primary focus of this course is to create a language rich environment in which students derive meaning from language and generate language in an academic setting. By practicing oral language and communication skills, students will learn to be more effective in expressing their own ideas and responding to the ideas of others during classroom discourse. This course is also built on the premise that developing oral language improves reading and writing skills. Narrative and descriptive language are emphasized in readings, discussions and other forms of communication. Vocabulary development and technology skills will also be practiced. Credits: 0.000
