OF CREDITS: 2 SEMESTERS: I, II, III LEVEL: ALL LEVELS PREREQUISITES: NONE COURSE DESCRIPTION: Candidates for this course are not required to have any prior, formal academic knowledge of the language. At the CLL we are dedicated to the promotion of communicative and cultural competence in our programmes. To this end, the focus will be on the development of the four predominant skills involved in language learning (speaking, listening, reading and writing). The tutor will also work towards introducing students to various cultural aspects of the language. Learners will develop an initial ability to communicate in the target language in situations relating to their personal lives. Participants will be introduced to the concept of learner autonomy in language learning. COURSE RATIONALE: This course will give students the opportunity to begin the study of one of the languages spoken in the Caribbean region. The purpose of this course is to provide students with the foundation necessary to become independent language learners. Students will become more familiar with the basic learning strategies available to support them in this endeavor. INSTRUCTOR INFORMATION: Name: Ms. Shawna Sealey Office address and phone: Office 2, CLL second floor, Centre for Language Learning. Ext: Office hours: By appointment 1

This includes reviewing your notes and ensuring that concepts are understood. Jot down any questions you may want to research or ask the tutor. This is also the time you take to complete your assignments. It is also important to read up on what you have learnt and practice with a partner, perhaps someone from your class or another class, but at your level. Preparation time: 2 hours per week. Have a look at the course outline and review or research the material for the upcoming class. Make a note of any questions that may arise, after the explanation by the tutor it may be clearer, if not, ask your question.
