EVERYDAY IDIOMS AND EXPRESSIONS
Winter 2009 Instructor: Sally Cocco
Wednesdays 12:30 – 1:20 firstname.lastname@example.org
Room R103C Jan 14 – Mar 18
TEXT: Everyday Idioms - Book one by Ronald E. Feare
This course is designed to teach students informal everyday speech used by native English speakers in a fun and interactive way. Students will learn to recognize expressions in both oral and written form, and will increase their listening ability when watching TV and movies or talking with native speakers.
Students will become familiar with many new expressions by using a variety of activities which will include exercises, discussions, sharing of expressions, advertisements and newspaper/magazine searches.
Mastering idioms and expressions requires a great deal of listening, studying, practice and usage. Participation in activities both during class time and outside of class time is important to getting the most benefit from this class.
Because our time together is short, I will assign units from the book for study at home.
Students will also be asked to keep a list of expressions that they hear or read during the week. We will discuss how to do this at our first meeting. Students will share some of these expressions with the class each week.
Certificates will be given for successful completion based on attendance (75%), participation and effort.
Please remember to turn off your ! Thank you!
I hope you enjoy this class and learn many good expressions and idioms!!!
