AP/ESL1000 6.0 O: Canadian Language and Culture
(Cross-listed to: AP/HUMA1220 6.0O )
Calendar Description / Prerequisite / Co-Requisite
This course has two main objectives. First, it aims at fostering those language skills which students using English as a second language need to succeed academically in the multicultural, English-medium context at York. The course accomplishes this goal primarily through content, rather than explicit language exercises, as is appropriate to learners at the university level. Second, the course aims to promote students' awareness of various aspects of Canadian society through the discussion and analysis of a range of texts exploring themes such as language and communication, culture and identity, and Canada's diverse communities. Note: This course comprises the English as a second language requirement for incoming English as a second language students. Course credit exclusions: AP/ESL 1450 6.00.
