The course aims to improve students’ English proficiency with a primary emphasis on the speaking skill. The following language areas are targeted: speaking accuracy, fluency, complexity, pragmatics, pronunciation, and analytic thinking. These areas are practiced through a variety of speaking genres including, but not limited to, a formal presentation, impromptu speech, small talk, telephone conversation, oral summary, lesson presentation, and news story. As students prepare for these and other assignments, they are expected to watch and listen to a lot of authentic material relevant to their professional and personal interests. The content of the course is tailored to MATEFL students. Hence, the assignments in terms of content and format are closely linked to students’ academic and professional needs.
