Objectives: In this block the learner will consolidate the material from the previous Blocks. In this Block the learner will consolidate the necessary knowledge to pass satisfactorily the TOEFL exam. The course content remains functional and focused entirely on improving learner independence in all areas, motivating the learner to become conversant on subjects such as cinema, expressing ability, obligation and prohibition as well as presenting and interpreting statistics. In terms of grammatical structures there will be continued revision and extension of the structures in all tenses. Productive and receptive skills are stretched with more phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions, the different verbs followed by gerunds or infinitives, expressing future possibility, and giving opinions. As with the other blocks on the course, there is frequent pronunciation practice and the learner has exposure to long and short sounds, vowel sounds, elision, homophones as well as general vocabulary and sentence level practice. In terms of conversation, the learner can now approach most situations with little or no preparation. The use of a variety of exercises encompasses different learner styles as well as guaranteeing thorough coverage of the topics covered. The block is comprised of a series of interactive exercises such as word-picture association, listening comprehension with short, realistic dialogs and student-led listening practice with the vocabulary items.
