This course ensures that students are successful at UTEL Level 5 in the Listening and Speaking examinations. They will, therefore, be able to listen to and grasp the main idea of a short speech, through an understanding of sequence markers and key vocabulary related to these spoken texts, which will include subject-related English for Academic Purposes (EAP). Students will also be able to make short descriptive speeches about themselves, their surroundings, and their basic substantive disciplines.Coordinator: Ms. Kaushalya Jayasinghe
