Improving English via Movies & TV
【学習方法】 Movie/video/TV show/documentary discussions will be combined with Video watching & listening (to improve listening skills). Some conversation may also be introduced, as a warm-up activity, to keep the class mood STIMULATING, cross-cultural/INTERNATIONAL and OPEN-MINDED (and to practice grammar and speaking). Explanations by the teacher will be given in English (and with a little Japanese, if needed).
【学習形態】 Students are requested to participate 429%; to QUICKLY answer questions and to EXPLAIN their answers; to be open-minded about new and different learning styles; to show and use HUMOR; and to understand that ‘Wasei Eigo’ is NOT appropriate English. Discussion & conversation will assist all of us to ‘ENERGIZE,’ and to USE the English that we learn through movies, videos, TV shows, and documentaries.
【受講者に期待する達成レベル】 If students are MOTIVATED; if they come to every class; if they participate actively and discuss, if they do all of the homework; and if they also do some ‘self-study’ on their own, then they can improve their comprehension and enjoyment of English movies, TV shows, documentaries, and video News. ACTIVE participation and positive energy are CRUCIAL to realizing your goals. ‘GO FOR IT!’ (Gambatte!)
