There will be two major goals for this course: one is to increase my students’ language competences and performance as well as the understandings of cross- culture communication; the other is to improve students Basic Interpersonal Communicative Skills (BICS) for bridging their Cognitive/Academic Language Proficiency (ACLP) into sophomore English and advanced English courses in the future. Through the both practice of BICA and CALP, students are facilitated in accessing the global market, possessing of worldview and competitiveness.
Sophomore English for Non-English Majors (SENM) is a required course for the majority of second-year students. It is a one-year course (1-1 credits) taken during the second year regardless of whether a student has passed or failed FENM. Students are NOT arranged by a placement exam. Students will remain in the same course section, with the same teacher, for both fall and spring semesters.
This course is intended as a general two-skills (listening and reading) integrated English-as-a-foreign language (EFL) course, emphasizing English in general contexts. In particular, SENM focuses on reading and listening in academic contexts. English is the medium of instruction. The main goal in listening is to provide students with opportunities to hear different English accents and voices in practical real-life conversational situations. The main goal in reading is to enhance students’ reading comprehension through maximizing their opportunities to use basic reading skills such as skimming, scanning, reading for main ideas, inferring, and guessing vocabulary from context. As an extension of FENM, SENM focuses on reading and listening, but still makes use of the four language skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
