ENIN 024 Basic Level Communication Skills

In this basic level course, students will develop speaking and listening skills needed for successful interaction on an English-speaking campus and in an English-speaking community. Students will participate in group activities, simulations, and lab experiences with classmates and native speakers to learn appropriate linguistic responses and correct cultural context for using them. Students will practice rhythm, stress, and intonation of English as well as vowel and consonant sounds of the language. Class meets five hours weekly. This is a developmental course and does not count toward degree requirements. Grades assigned for this course include “S,” “U,” and “NC.” “NC” stands for no credit and does not affect a student’s academic status.
