English 211 is a speaking course designed with the aim of equipping students with the essential speaking skills they need to cope with the English language as medium of instruction. Therefore, the course revolves around two main focuses: academic speaking and presentation skills. To this end, the course offers a content based approach where all four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing are integrated to foster various speaking opportunities. Since the main focus of the course is on speaking, the listening, reading and writing tasks will serve as springboard to either generate or to complement speaking. The emphasis put on variety, language skills and the balance between input and practice throughout the course will help students become more confident, autonomous and competent speakers of English.
