The goal of the course is to help students become actively involved in their own language learning. From intensive and extensive reading practices, students learn to read and read to learn. Through communicative activities combining with skill-building exercises, students learn to express their thoughts, observations, and opinions clearly and effectively in both writing and speech. On completion of the course, students should be able to use the four skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) to confidently learn and communicate in and outside class.
Freshman English for Non-English Majors (FENM) is a required course for the majority of freshmen at Tunghai University. This course is intended as a general four skills (namely, listening, speaking, reading, and writing) integrated English-as-a-foreign-language (EFL) course emphasizing English fluency in general contexts, i.e., English use for general purposes. Thereby, the course is designed to help students use their existing general knowledge about themselves and about the world along with the knowledge of the English language they have acquired to enhance their general English proficiency and enrich their personal background knowledge by using English to learn and communicate. Specifically, the FENM course maximizes students’ opportunities to use English in a wide variety of contexts both in and outside class. Furthermore, it provides an atmosphere that will increase students’ participation and confidence in a non-threatening, whole-English learning environment and that will facilitate students’ acquisition of new knowledge and skills of the English language and new knowledge about the world.
