American Communication

Speak English Confidently with Our American Communication Program

The ability to speak conversational English, including informal and slang terms, is important for so many reasons. Columbia West College’s American Communication program is perfect for students who want to increase their understanding of common vocabulary and expressions while improving their ability to communicate freely in any situation. With the American Communication program, you’ll focus on the more informal, but still important, parts of learning English, like pronunciation, accent reduction, slang, and more.

What You’ll Learn

The American Communication program is different from the other courses at our Los Angeles ESL school, because the lessons focus on listening and speaking. Students will learn about main ideas, implied meanings, and details while practicing their new skills in discussions. Textbooks, interactive activities, and media supplement classroom lessons. Students in the American Communication program will take three classes that focus on different skills, including:

  • Communication: Learn techniques for delivering presentations, solving problems, analyzing information, and ensuring your audience understands your message.
  • Slang and Idioms: Master informal English by learning to recognize everyday expressions. Test your skills by participating in debates, discussions, and speeches.
  • Pronunciation: Perfect your English by practicing specific vowel and consonant sounds, as well as rhythm and intonation.

Additionally, the curriculum in each class gives students exposure to global and local issues while challenging them in role-play and real-life situations.
