Module: Level 2 Collaborative Speaking and Listening

The Collaborative Listening and Speaking module covers the language skills necessary for students to interact in meaningful ways. This means being able to have relevant and intellectually-challenging discourse in various contexts and modes of language (collaborative, interpretive and productive).
