Effective communication is an essential skill for success in any sphere of activity, from leadership responsibilities, teamwork, interviews, presentations, and inter-personal relations. This is a skill that needs to be taught in a systematic manner so that students imbibe the fundamentals of communication. The art of persuasive speaking and writing depends crucially on clarity of thought and contextual understanding expressed through appropriate vocabulary.

The ability to think critically is crucial for a good communicator and involves an understanding of the communicative process. Therefore, we need to study every stage of this process systematically in order to be much more effective at communicating successfully — in interviews, public speaking, letter writing, report writing, presentations, and inter-personal debates and conversations.

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of the course, students should be able to:

  • Students will master the art of persuasive speech and writing.
  • Students will master the art of listening, reading, and analyzing. Students will spend the bulk of their time in class in practical exercises of reading and writing.
  • Students will develop critical thinking skills.
  • They will be introduced to established principles of academic reading and writing.
