B  Objectives 

1.  Summary of the main learning outcomes for students enrolled in the course.

Listening:

The course aims to train the students to develop their speaking and listening skills so that at

the end of the course they will be able to handle specific communicative tasks. The focus of

the course will be on practical language use. Every student will perform these tasks

numerous times within the class. Extensive use will be made of audio and visual materials

to train the students to listen to language used in different situations. Intonation drills will

be covered so that students can produce language that approximates native language

rhythms.

Main Objectives:

ü  Understand spoken English at a variety of communicative situations,

ü  especially lectures.

ü  To familiarize students with the sound patterns such as phonemes, stress,

ü  rhythm, intonation and tone.

ü  To accustom students to the normal rate of speech of the native speakers

ü  during normal conversation.

ü  To familiarize students with false start, pause, fillers and redundancies

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the proper use of pitch, intonation, duration, tone of voice, gesture and facial expression to full import of a spoken message.

  • Speak about different topics in different communicative situations

  • Show an ability to produce spoken language that has an acceptable level of clarity

  • Recognize variation in sounds due to varieties in English language.

  • Infer meaning from listening messages.

2.  Briefly describe any plans for developing and improving the course that are being implemented.  (eg increased use of IT or web based reference material,  changes in content as a result of new research in the field)

    1. Check marking of a sample of examination papers either by a resident or visiting

        faculty member

   2. Arrange with another institution to have two common test items included on an

       exam and compare marks given

   3. Students who believe they are  under graded can have their papers checked by a

      second reader/assesser.

5  Describe the  planning arrangements for periodically reviewing course effectiveness and planning for

    improvement.

    1. Compare syllabi and course description with other universities (including those on

        the net)

    2. Biannual meetings of faculty members to discuss improvement

    3. Have a curriculum review committee to review the curriculum periodically and

        suggest  improvements.
