Prerequisite: Self-Evaluation for Non-credit workshop at Intermediate level:

I am able to understand most of a conversation when I hear the language spoken. I cannot understand very well when people speak quickly. I can hold a conversation, but I make many mistakes when I speak and I have difficulty expressing complex ideas because I do not have the vocabulary and I am missing some of the grammatical rules.

Overall Goals:
1. This course aims to give students at the intermediate level the opportunity to improve and practice their speaking and comprehension skills and to enrich their vocabulary.
2. The topics and subjects chosen are related to the workplace, the environment, the news, education, culture, health and relationships. The course focuses on refining the skills already acquired.

1. Express opinions, tastes and preferences (current affairs, culture, society)
2. Give advice and making suggestions
3. Express hopes, desires and goals
4. Talk about past events, their countries of origin, their families and past experiences
