Science English (Thursday 2)
DESCRIPTION & OBJECTIVES:
This course is for INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED level students.
*CLASS CONTENT HAS CHANGED.* Due to the COVID-19 situation, This class will be conducted as an online/on-demand class which will consist of mostly self-study. Science is about facts, evidence, and truth. In this class, we will study Critical Thinking for the Digital Age. Misinformation and disinformation run rampant all around us, and everyone needs to hone their skills to decipher what is true and what is not. We will study using YouTube videos not made for EFL (English as a Foreign Language) students. This makes it a bit challenging, however, if you put time and effort into it, you will see much improvement in your English comprehension ability. The journey begins!
