Teacher: Cynthia Nolasco Lessons: 4 /week
This course is designed to provide English language learners with structured opportunities to practice their reading and writing skills using the internet both as a source of reading material and as a medium for writing in English. For reading practice, texts are drawn from the internet to familiarize the learners with the conventions of written/digital texts in English. For writing practice, the main tool is blogging.
Class members write and contribute to a blog where entries on different topics are posted weekly by the class members for all to read and comment on. Vocabulary building exercises and grammar points are taken up, based on the language practice needs of the class. Exercises to develop the different types of reading skills in English as well as relevant language games are engaged in.
