The goal of this course is to train students to use English from what they have studied, meaning that they are not the dull English readers any longer, and play the roles of active participants in the classroom. The students are hoped to listen , to speak , to read and to write at hand. Cooperative learning is partly brought into classes. Students are sometimes the instructors, who take the jobs to illustrate and explicate a vocabulary or part of an article as well as the teacher is sometimes one of the participants.
Coming along with different topics taught in class, a variety of activities, games and homeworks are shaped for students. Students, thus, have many chances to improve their English ,and to develope their other talents such as their ability in estheticism, in cooperation with other people and etc in English class.
