Academic Speaking 1 University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

This course aims to help students improve their speaking skills for communicating in both academic and general contexts. Each lesson is based around a written text or video related a current general science topic (e.g. vaccines, space exploration, robotics, artificial intelligence). Students will learn related vocabulary, practice a selected language function or form and discuss the topic in groups. While the course integrates all four skills areas (speaking, listening, reading and writing), there is a stronger focus on speaking. Each week students will record and submit a spoken homework assignment related to the topic studied in class.
