American Culture and Conversation

This course is designed for students who wish to focus on American culture and real life listening and speaking skills.  Instructors lead students on a virtual road trip across the United States, stopping to focus on lifestyles, food, dialects, natural features, and unique aspects of local culture found in each region of the country.  Interactive resources such as podcasts and TED talks related to contemporary topics are also used to enhance language abilities.  This course will not only improve fluency, pronunciation, and cultural knowledge, but grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing in context will also be targeted.  This course is designed for students with at least a low advanced level of English language skills, equal to the standards of our Levels 5 and 6.
