Students are required to enroll in the course and to attend class three times a week for five hours total. Through this course, students will:
(1) increase English language skills (i.e., listening, speaking, reading, and writing) and be able to pass language-proficiency exams;
(2) become active learners who can question the text and reflect on their own social surrounding;
(3) foster a sense of collaboration through different group tasks, such as dialogue, role-play, pair work, etc. as a learning community.
Aims of Course
Freshman English for Majors is a four-skills course taught exclusively to majors of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. The goal of the course is primarily to improve students’ proficiency 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 the 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.
