Sophomore English for Non-English Majors (SENM) is a required course for the majority of second-year
students at Tunghai University. It is a one-year course worth 1-1 credits, and is taken during the second year
regardless of whether a student has passed or failed FENM. English is the medium of instruction.
SENM is intended as an integrated English-as-a foreign-language (EFL) course to further advance
students beyond the English ability level achieved in FENM. 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. More specifically, SENM emphasizes application of the four skills learned in FENM to general
contexts, and exposes students to English from a range of natural situations, with a focus on reading and
listening. Commensurate with their ability level, students are encouraged to draw upon English as a useful
resource in learning about and interacting with the wider world. Communication skills are strengthened, and
confidence in active use of English is nurtured. SENM also introduces students to interesting topics in
English to help prepare students to integrate English source materials in their further studies. Maximizing
students’ exposure to real-life conversations, reading materials, and multimedia from different English
language sources is emphasized, and students are trained in advancing and improving skills of
communication and presentation in English.
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.
