The primary objective of this course is to initiate students in the most important techniques of oral expression, such as conferences, discussion groups (debate, forum, symposium), and improvisational acting with the purpose of achieving the degree of oral expression that will help them find the means to express themselves orally with clarity, ease, self-assuredness, and correct use of the language. The secondary objective is to train them in the art of listening with the purpose of having them learn to discern, respect, and analyze as well as evaluate the opinions of others. Learning activities used are introduction to debate and discussion, the narration of personal experiences, literary appreciation, enrichment of vocabulary, spelling, composition writing, and various practices in reading and listening. More specific objectives and activities are listed in Spanish with suggestions for materials to be used. (Author/VM)
