Advanced Vocabulary and Idioms
The Advanced Vocabulary and Idioms program is designed to help non-native speakers of English increase the quantity and quality of vocabulary from a variety of contexts at an advanced level. Lexical expansion will be offered through systematic and imaginative strategies. Students will learn techniques for understanding vocabulary from context, collocations, and words with multiple meanings. Much emphasis will be placed on idiomatic expressions that reflect contemporary North American usage. The presentation of the vocabulary will be done in realistic contexts in order to allow students to perceive nuances between idioms. Students will be encouraged to apply the lexicon to their own lives, making vocabulary and idioms more relevant and useful.
The program meets for a total of 18 hours per week.
Prerequisites: Advanced GE30 passing grade or satisfactory score on the placement test.
