ESOL 5 – Advanced
- Students will read articles from Newsela, CNN, The Guardian or other news and information sites and review unknown vocabulary. They will be asked comprehensive questions to see if they can summarize what they learned orally, followed by a summary from the student that avoids copying from the text. Review the draft, point out errors and see if they can correct them on their own. A teacher will help as needed.
- Use the same approach as other writing assignments, such as having students describe how to do something that they are experts at, or have students give their opinion about a topic in the news.
- Practice making sentences using common irregular in the past tense and in the present perfect.
- Working on summarizing articles without copying them. We will discuss plagiarism.
ESOL 6 – Conversational
Conversational English, while the most fun class I believe the course might be the hardest one to learn. It involves colloquialisms or idioms, slang, pop culture references, attention to regional dialects and pretty much breaking almost all the English rules you just learned in order to have your words flow like an American English speaker. Also, body language and how to interacts with English will be discussed.
There are two levels of The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) – Academic and General.
- Academic: Training for people applying for higher education or professional registration.
- General: Training for those migrating who want to study at universities and colleges as well as trade schools in an English-speaking country or seek professional registration.
