The course is designed to develop students' language proficiency and communicative competence for academic purpose. This is achieved by involving students in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. Students are required to extract and reconstruct information from audio-visual texts into various oral and written forms through activities that engage students to use the language in context. Input includes discourse such as newspaper articles, and related online materials. Writing tasks progress from constructing grammatically accurate sentences to paragraphs in different types of short reports. Based on the input, students are also expected to discuss and express themselves through impromptu speech and oral presentation. Grammar is integrated in the content of the course where students should apply the rules and structures accurately and fluently in all four components. All these are done in an effort to promote active and continuous learning as well as critical, creative and innovative thinking in students.
