Students at this level can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar, or of personal interest and describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans, at this point, students are working on the speaking skill indirectly. The next development area subject is advanced English II, this subject provides language development and practice through tasks and activities also will enable students to reach a solid advanced level in each of the four language skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. Each of these skills are addressed discreetly (attending to their subcomponents and globally attending to their communicative intent) to provide both the analytic and experiential language learning balance required for effective development of the target level of proficiency. According to the Advanced Intensive English II Courses program semester I, 2018.This subject aim is that students understand the main ideas of complex texts on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in their field of specialization. They can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. They can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options. Besides, another important development area subject is reading and conversation I. Reading and conversation I enables students to develop the reading skills by putting into practice some reading techniques to reach oral comprehension, and fluency at the moment of reading; on the other hand, reading and conversation II enable students to express themselves on many topics and also these courses enable students to increase their vocabulary regarding to many topics. The next development area subjects are English Grammar I and II, English grammar I aims to study the grammatical structure applied in real conversations and it attends to improve the reading and listening comprehension and English Grammar II presents to the students more complex grammatical structures and also has practice on the four micro-skills to enable students to produce the language in its spoken and written form. And other development area subjects are composition I and II, composition I aims to develop productive skills on the students, this subject will enable students to communicate by writing their ideas clearly in the English language, and Composition II reinforces what students have already learned in composition I, composition II aims that students use different writing styles; for example, description paragraph, cause and effect, comparison and contrast paragraph, opinion paragraph, and so on to express their ideas through a paragraph. The last development area subjects are literature I and II, these subjects encourage students to read different literature throughout the time; however, literature II makes students express their ideas orally and in a written form, and students will learn about different cultures. Indeed, these courses carry out the ability of the students to produce the language orally and in written form.
