This course aims to introduce learners to the dynamics of effective spoken communication by establishing speaking as an autonomous medium with a distinctive vocabulary, syntax, structure, style and register. It will enable learners to participate in one to one interactions, in small groups and before a group. Learners are expected to master the fundamentals of speaking such as vocabulary, body language, pronunciation and basic conversation skills before they move on to more advanced activities such as appearing in interviews, making formal presentations and participating in meetings.
