This module is non-credit bearing and forms part of the Pre-sessional 11 in which you study Academic Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. You also attend Independent Learning workshops to develop critical thinking and study skills necessary to succeed at University in the UK.
Academic Listening is taught in conjunction with Academic Speaking as these skills often overlap; for example, spoken interaction requires both skills and the aim of this module is to help develop a more general communicative competence. This means that the separate Academic Listening and Speaking modules will appear on your timetable as a combined ‘Listening and Speaking’ teaching session. The Academic Listening module follows the University of Southampton Pre-sessional 11 Listening and Speaking syllabus and has specific assessments for this module.
