1 unit

What does it mean to “be Californian”? This class focuses on English listening and speaking skills while exploring the progressive style of California culture and cultural change.  In class, students will listen to short lectures and influential music, read about California icons, view and discuss featured video clips, and actively participate in discussions, fieldwork and group presentations focusing on three major course themes: the pioneering spirit, diversity, and nature. This is an excellent opportunity for students to improve listening skills, increase fluency, and learn more about Berkeley and surrounding areas.
