ESL Intermediate is a topic-based, integrated skills course designed to provide learners with language instruction to function naturally in an English language environment. Activities and materials are authentic, engaging and highly interactive. The course will provide opportunities to practice and review new language in realistic contexts using all 4 skill areas—speaking, listening, reading and writing. At this level, language instructions builds on low intermediate-level communication including more complex language structures and richer vocabulary to discuss familiar topics at greater length. In addition, learners will have exposure to less familiar topics and have opportunities to express basic opinions on these topics. Assessment will be both summative and cumulative and also serve to reinforce learning.
This is a Language course and does not lead to a career path.
