ELI 533: Interactive Listening and Communication

10-week course

In this class, graduate students practice and improve listening and speaking skills that support clear communication and relationship-building within the academic community. Participants will learn how to:

  • Participate effectively in informal conversations
  • Negotiate and correct misunderstandings
  • Participate with greater ease in discussions which include exchanges of points of view
  • Apply effective communication skills in informal and formal interactions

Participants will engage in extensive language practice role-plays, fluency exercises, classroom discussions and presentations, many of which will be videotaped for analysis and feedback.
