This 1-year course, meeting two hours a week, is designed to enrich freshmen management department students’ knowledge of academic English and enhance their vocabulary size in academic field and reading strategies.
In this course, reading materials will mainly be introduced in a content-based approach, where students will be exposed to topics in different academic fields with a focus on the vocabulary acquisition, recognizing reading structures, organizing information and strategies for critical thinking.
At the same time, listening activities will also be incorporated to provide the students with opportunities to immerge in a real English speaking environment through authentic and familiar life topics in various ways, including conservation, dialogue, debate and individual talk. Therefore, oral competency will be naturally cultivated in such an intensive and diverse English learning environment.
Basically, class materials will be presented in a dynamic teaching-learning method, where students’ topic discussion, oral summary, and presentations as well as teacher’s in-class activities and homework assignments will be used for the students to apply, integrate, and, hopefully, internalize what they have learned.
Freshman English is a first-year required course. The goal of the course is primarily to improve the proficiency of students in communicative language skills with an emphasis on speaking and writing. A functional, notional approach is taken to planning objectives to help students gain confidence in using English in social interactions. Therefore, active participation in the class is a prerequisite for successful completion. A variety of activities are used throughout the year including dialogues, role-plays, pair work, small group projects and whole class discussions. The syllabus includes a general review of grammar and many class activities attempt to integrate these grammar components. Therefore, students are given the opportunity to apply the rules to real-life situations that they might encounter in an English-speaking country. Teachers encourage students to monitor their grammar usage while improving their level of fluency.
