Course Details
Course DescriptionThis course is designed to help students communicate more effectively and confidently in spoken English. The course addresses improvement in oral skills needed for daily conversation, class discussions and oral presentations. Students also have opportunities to develop their vocabulary and listening skills as well as improve pronunciation.
Course MaterialsCourse learning materials will be provided in the lectures and online through the course website. Students will be responsible for downloading weekly class worksheets, and attaining their own materials whenever a website link is given in place of a worksheet. It is strongly recommended that students buy a 2-subject notebook to use as listening and vocabulary logbooks for assignments given throughout the course.
Course ObjectivesThis course focuses on a wide-range of skillsets including improving listening comprehension, understanding idiomatic vocabulary, participating in class discussions, giving individual presentations, asking and answering questions, and interacting effectively with a native English speaker.

Specifically, this course seeks to:
• Develop speaking skills for communicating effectively in a variety of academic and social situations (expressing and supporting opinion, describing people, places and things in detail, giving directions in a sequence, etc.)
• Develop functional speaking skills (describing daily routines, emotions, etc.)
• Develop speaking skills used in both academic and business situations (i.e., critical thinking skills, summarizing talking points, giving speeches, etc.)
• Develop listening skills (language focus, comprehensible input, inference, predicting, active listening, hesitation devices, correction devices, text decoding)
• Develop high-frequency conversational vocabulary spoken by native speakers every day (slang, idioms, phrasal verbs and collocations)
• Learn to identify and correct common word choice errors for Turkish students
• Learn to identify and correctly pronounce problematic vocabulary (including homographs such as record (n.) versus record (v.), etc.)
Course OutcomesAfter successfully completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Speak using a variety of functional language in realistic and useful situations
• Demonstrate confident and engaging oral speaking skills
• Build conversational vocabulary in a meaningful, relevant context
• Enhance listening skills due to increased phonological awareness
• Recognize and use spoken idiomatic language in conversations
• Recognize and apply basic pronunciation rules to problematic vocabulary
Course ActivitiesEach week students will participate in a different class activity designed to develop and enhance targeted listening, speaking and vocabulary skills. Students will participate in class conversational activities and receive related homework assignments designed to reinforce the target language.

Homework assignments will be connected to topics covered during online class activities and will serve to reinforce the target language learned.

Homework activities are task-based and are divided into two separate, yet equally connected components: A listening activity and a speaking activity. Listening activities are designed to give the student a reason to listen for specific details that are directly connected to the speaking activity. Speaking activities are designed to give the student practice using the target language with a specific purpose in mind.

Course ComponentsListening Logs
You will keep a listening log of your listening activities outside of the class. There are a total of nine (9) listening logs that must be completed, each with a different focus. You will listen to English conversations of others outside the class (this can be from any valid source available such as real life conversations, T.V. shows, movies, YouTube videos, Podcasts, etc.), but it should be a conversation between two people. As you listen you will note things that happen that pertain to the prompt for that listening log (each log will have a specific assignment).

As you listen, take notes on paper in your class notebook. After your notes are complete, you should convert them into a JPEG or PDF file before uploading them to the conversation class folder (each log will have a specific folder). You can do this in one of the following ways: First, take a photo of your notes to convert them to JPEG format, or secondly, scan them and save them in PDF format and then upload this to the class website for that week’s assignment. (For example: Week 1 Listening Log 1).

Speaking Tasks
Students will have a total of ten (10) speaking tasks to complete throughout the course (a different one each week). You can use your Smartphone to record these in either MP3 audio or MP4 video format. These must be a minimum of 3 minutes in length with a maximum on 5 minutes in length (3-5 minutes total). These must be uploaded to the class website and each task will have a specific folder. (For example: Week 1 Speaking Task 1).

All assignments uploaded to the weekly class folders must be named accordingly:

Assignment Naming Conventions
Student’s First Name + Last Name + Log / Task Number

Planned Oral Presentation
For this assignment you will choose your own topic and prepare a 5-minute speech (oral presentation). You will have one week to prepare your speech, which you will give during the next class. You will be provided with a list of prompts to choose from. These will include functional language categories, which we will have already covered in previous lessons, but you are also free to choose your own topic outside of this list.
Attendance & ParticipationAttendance and participation are essential in order for you to maximize your success in this course. This includes being punctual (starting class on time). In-class activities CANNOT be made up outside of class, so students are expected to start on time, be prepared to participate, and be willing to contribute to class activities. If you miss class, this will affect your performance due to the missed listening and speaking practice. It will also put you behind the pacing due to missed homework assignments.
Certificate of CompletionUpon successful completion of this course, eligible students will receive a certificate of completion from Ege University. In order to qualify for this certificate, students must meet the following requirements: (1) – an 80% or higher attendance rate for the entire course. (2) – an 80% or higher completion rate for all of the homework assignments given during this course.
