Dersin Amacı This course aims at providing students with basic reading strategies that will help them improve their reading skills in their further studies for academic purposes. They will be able to reflect on what they have read and express themselves in English since the course also includes certain strategies for speaking. Students will be provided with sufficient information about different speaking styles like "informative speech" and “persuasive speech” and be able to deliver speeches in front of a group of people. The students are expected to be familiar with a variety of vocabulary items and syntactic features as the chosen materials serve as a spectrum of a wide range of them. Since the chosen materials are contemporary and universal with respect to their themes, the students are tbelieved to find them interesting, which will encourage and motivate them for extensive reading in order to create the basis for a lifelong-learning. As a result, the students are expected to get used to reading for different purposes like reading for detailed information or specific information, which will help them shift from "learn to read" to “read to learn” for their future academic purposes.
