ENG 210 English Communication Skills (3 credits)
The main goal of ENG 210 is to enhance the students’ competence and willingness to express themselves in an organized manner in academic and professional contexts, and to interact with others confidently. It is important that students learn to conduct independent research and think critically on issues raised in the course.
ENG 210 will use an integrated, thematic approach with emphasis on advanced oral communication and academic presentation skills, with language components such as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. ENG 210 will be inter-active; students will be encouraged to listen actively, respond to presentations, and participate in discussions.  Speaking activities and academic presentations will ensue from reading and listening activities. Each theme will lead to the production of an oral and/or written activity.
Input on oral presentation skills will enable the students to distinguish between oral and written discourse, and emphasize the requirements of oral discourse (such as direct sentences, transitional words and signposts).  Skills (such as good body language, effective eye contact and voice control) related to the delivery of an oral presentation will be discussed and demonstrated.
