LENG 1156 English 06

Basic Cycle
The goal of the basic cycle is to help students develop the English language skills necessary to operate, with relative effectiveness, in academic and social settings; it also focuses on empowering students to become effective readers that can cope with the demands of their academic life at the University and of their future professional lives.
Course Overview
English 6 is the 7th course in the Basic Cycle. At this level, students work on their development of the four language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and acquire essential grammar structures and vocabulary that will allow them to succeed in academic and social settings. In an attempt to empower students to cope with their most immediate academic need, and similar to the previous and subsequent courses in the Basic Cycle, this course aims to develop a stronger set of reading skills in comparison to the other skills of the language. In fact, the students who pass this level will also be meeting the University Reading requisite. Moreover, critical thinking skills are taught and practiced, requiring students’ reflection and analysis rather than simple recall. The extent to which the language skills will be developed corresponds to the following exit levels as per the Common European Framework of Reference: • Reading: B2+ • Listening: B1+ • Speaking: B1 • Writing: B1
