Advanced Discussion: Contemporary Issues
In Advanced Discussion: Contemporary Issues, discussions are based on complex issues and progressive topics. This course is designed to challenge students to speak about complex issues which are deeper and more abstract. One of the primary goals of this class is to expose students to real world English through articles, blogs and journals, allowing them to experience the language in the same way native speakers do. The program includes lively and interesting discussions and debates about how globalization, culture, technology, and world events increasingly influence our world.
Students are encouraged to think critically and analyze articles so they can examine issues at a deeper level.
