UNIV 102 - Spoken Communication for International Students

(4)
UNIV-102 focuses on the listening, speaking, and classroom participation skills and the ESL language and cultural issues particularly relevant to success in a United States university for non-native speakers of English. This course is designed to prepare the student for the rigors of university-level listening and speaking tasks. The student will practice the English skills needed to understand lectures and take effective notes, to participate confidently in classroom discussions, small group conferences, and one-on-one conversations, and to speak effectively in individual and group presentations. The course will also focus on understanding various cultural issues that can improve the university experience as the student begins undergraduate study, including classroom and course expectations, student life in the United States and idiomatic language. UNIV-102 is required of those international students with a TOEFL score below 540 (76 iBT TOEFL) & must be taken during the first semester of undergraduate studies. Typically followed by UC-120.
