Cross Cultural English Conversation
【学習方法】 Activity handout sheets will be mixed with song-listening and video discussion exercises (to improve listening skills); with conversation (to keep the mood INTERNATIONAL and OPEN-MINDED, and to practice grammar and speaking); with News article-reading (to improve reading, writing, and grammar); with some videos; and with other items, to keep the class STIMULATING and cross-cultural. Explanations by the teacher are given in English (and in a little Japanese, if needed).
【学習形態】 Students are requested to participate 382%; to QUICKLY answer questions (and to EXPLAIN their answers); to be open-minded about new and different INTERNATIONAL teaching and learning styles; to show a good sense of HUMOR; and to understand that ‘Wasei Eigo’ is NOT useful English. Pair conversation will assist all of us to ‘ENERGIZE’, and to actively USE the English that we learn.
【受講者に期待する達成レベル】 If students are MOTIVATED; come to every class; do ALL of the homework; and also do ‘self-study’ on their own, they can improve their English & International communication skills. Participation and positive energy are CRUCIAL to realizing your English & International goals. ‘Go for it!’ 【Gambatte!】
