Course Goals
 1)To help our EFL students overcome their language barriers they have been building all through the previous years due to the misbelief of being unable to communicate in the target language properly.

2)To create self-confident individuals who are not afraid to take risks to speak in daily conversations as well as more formal speeches before masses of people.

3)To encourage the students to believe that they are individuals “who can Express themselves freely and confidently on formal and/or informal level about any kind of topic” rather than being the ones “who know the language but fail in producing that language orally”.

4)To bring out competent teacher trainees of the future years of their education who have comprehensive knowledge of the language concerned; can easily express themselves and transfer the absurbed informationin the most accurate, fluent and effective manner, as native-like as possible.
