|Course:||College Listening and Speaking II|
Welcome to this college listening and speaking course. My name is Heather, and I will be your instructor for this course.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all and working with you on your speaking and listening skills.
This course provides practice speaking at the high-intermediate level in formal and informal college situations.
We will focus on listening, speaking, and pronunciation. You will do a lot of talking and listening as we go through interesting topics, learn new vocabulary, and reinforce grammar.
Some topics we may discuss (these topics may change and students will choose one of our lesson topics).
