Through in-class instructional activities and language lab work, students will learn basic grammar, sentence patterns, vocabulary, composition, and culture. The course is suitable in AA programs requiring essential skills as preparation for university-parallel programs.
This intermediate course provides basic communication skills for students interested in the functional use of language in everyday situations and or for students in an A.A. or A.S. program requiring essential skills in language as preparation for university parallel programs. This course is a continuation of skills learned in CHI 1120. The use of the language lab, tutorial, and individual instruction are integral course components that may be administered outside of regular class meeting time. This is a designated diversity-infused course.
This course gives the student the opportunity to understand the relationship of theory to practice through participation in a service-learning experience. Students are required to complete 20 hours of volunteer work, a service-learning contract, and an oral and written reflection of the experience.
