Online English Courses

Study English Online at the University of North Georgia, USA

The six-week Summer 2021 Online English Program is designed to help international students develop the English skills necessary for successful communication in social situations, university courses, and professional settings where strong reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills are essential. In this program, students will have discussion-based courses in Reading & Writing, Listening & Speaking, and American Culture. Courses will meet live on Zoom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 

The Reading & Writing section of this course is designed to help students improve their reading comprehension and written communication in English. Students will learn new vocabulary and develop strategies for improving their comprehension of authentic articles from various websites. Through live Zoom meetings and an online discussion board, students will answer discussion questions about the articles and share personal opinions about the reading topics. Through instructor-led video lectures, students will also learn strategies for organizing formal writing for academic and professional purposes. They will be able to practice different types of writing through various assignments.

The Listening & Speaking section of this course is designed to help students listen to and understand the main ideas and important details of authentic spoken English. Students will also develop speaking skills to help them speak comprehensibly in both conversation and in formal presentations. Listening & Speaking class assignments will consist of academic lectures provided through mediums such as Ted Talks, news casts, and other videos and audio related to various themes. Student assignments will include comprehension questions and discussions based on the audio. Students will be asked to record a video speech and speak live with the instructors based on the topics assigned each week.  

The American Culture section of this course is designed to help students synthesize what they have learned in both sections of the course by participating in live virtual discussions with both instructors and classmates. These sessions will help students learn more about various aspects of American history and culture, share similarities and differences about their their own culture, and hear from classmates about other countries around the world.  Although there will be no additional assignments for the American Culture section, students will be able to practice and improve their English skills through these discussions.
