Communication Skills 2 – Intermediate

Introduction
General Communication Skills Course II – Intermediate includes a General Language Skills unit, just as General Communication Skills Course I – Basics did. Again, be reminded that at the heart of all communication is a good command of the language you are using. The fewer mistakes you make and the wider your knowledge in semantics (various words you can use), grammar (how to structure sentences and use the correct words forms) and stylistics (how to express yourself appropriately and efficiently), the more confident you will become in all communication processes. After checking on your competence in the use of tenses in Course I, this study session offers a survey of a further important aspect of language which can prove tricky to beginners and specialists alike in the field of vocabulary competence: Phrasal Verbs. Again, for students with a good command of English in all its aspects, this may be pure repetition, but it is an opportunity to check on your language competence in these important fields.


Learning Outcomes:
On completing this study session, you will
1. have greater confidence and ease in using collocations in English;
2. have acquired a sensitivity for the use of collocations and hence have the knowledge how to expand your language skills in this area;


Terminologies:
Collocation = “The habitual juxtaposition or association, in the sentences of a language, of a particular word with other particular words; a group of words so associated.” (Oxford English Dictionary)
