Designed for intermediate-level students who have prior knowledge of the Vietnamese language. This course attempts to present an integrated approach to language learning and is aimed at strengthening students� listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in Vietnamese. Students are thoroughly grounded in communicative activities such as conversations, performance simulations, drills, role-plays, games, etc. The task-based activities are meant to provide relatively safe settings where students can practice Vietnamese, make mistakes, and learn from them. Students improve their reading and writing abilities by developing their vocabulary, grammar, and meaning-based knowledge.
