Course Title:  Language skills

 

Credit hours: 3 hours

 

Course level: 1st level 1st year

 

Course objective:

Participants in this grammar / writing course are thoroughly trained in basic sentence writing. With this aim in mind, and when dealing with sentence structure, the instructor has to proceed in subtle gradation moving from the simple to the complex. However, since the study of sentence structure is inseparable from any basic composition course, such study must be profound rather than shallow, preparing the student for the next writing course in level two. Among other things, the course involves parts of speech, tenses, subject-verb agreement, types of sentences (including simple, compound and complex), various types of modifiers, as well as transitional expressions. Emphasis should be laid on the extensive use of exercises and sentence writing in the classroom.
