This course will help you to understand spoken English and practice speaking with Americans. I think your listening skills will improve quickly and hope you will enjoy this course. There will be many activities in the classroom, but here are some out-of-class assignments that will help you too. For each, be ready to tell what you saw or heard at the next class meeting. The tasks below are all listening and speaking activities. If you have any questions about any assignment, ask your teacher in person or by e-mail.
