Course content
Although verbal communication and its means play an important role in language teaching, nonverbal communication seems to be somewhat the opposite ? students do not learn much about facial expressions, head movements, eye contact, hand gestures, body positions and acts, tones of voice, and so on. This is what this course concentrates on.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic Lecture(Interpretation, Training), Dialogic Lecture (Discussion, Dialog, Brainstorming), Activating (Simulations, Games, Dramatization)
Learning outcomes
This course concentrates on the importance of "how" people communicate. Students will also learn about body language and once they get some theoretical knowledge, they will try to "read" body language in real life situations.
