教育目標

本課程著重英語溝通技巧的培養,是大二英文課程模組化的實驗課程,為本校深耕計畫的一部分。修課學生全學年會待在原班,但上、下學期將由不同的老師分別教授。本班下學期是「簡報技巧」,授課老師為邱妙津博士。上學期則為「專題製作」,授課老師是Douglas Jarvie博士。 本實驗課程主要是為了增進英文溝通能力及口語表現技巧的學生所設計。任課教師將會運用各種多元的題材與多媒體資源進行教學,藉此提供學生紮實的聽力及口說訓練。此外,學生將會獲得大量的口語學習活動,同時會在本學期進行兩場主要的英文口頭報告。透過謹慎規劃的授課內容與充足的口語練習,學生將能具體提升表達技巧,同時也能培養個人在口語表達上的自信心, 尤其是針對個人生活經驗的描述。 Course Objectives: On completion of the course, students should be able to (1) enhance their English listening ability; (2) enhance their English speaking ability; (3) enhance their overall English communicative ability; and (4) express and communicate their ideas in English more confidently. Course Contents: In addition to activities suggested by the textbook (Present Yourself 1: Experiences), this class also incorporates group discussions, online TED talks appreciations, and various hands-on presentation projects to enhance students’ ability of planning and giving presentations on a range of topics in a variety of situations.

課程概述

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. 「大二英文」是多數大二學生的必修課程。學生必須於大二期間修習這門上下學期各二學分的一年課程。大一英文成績不及格不會擋修大二英文。學生一旦完成選課,必須留在原班,不得要求更動。上下學期皆然。 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. 本課程著重聽與讀兩種能力之訓練,尤其偏重學術性文本,俾能對學生在校學習有所助益。學生除了課堂中聽教師以英文授課,其餘課程中提供的各種視聽教材(CD,DVD以及影片)也幫助學生聽懂各種相關議題的英文。聽力訓練的主要目標乃提供學生於實際日常生活對話情境中聆聽各種英文腔調及聲音的機會。閱讀能力訓練的主要目標在於提供大量基礎閱讀技巧的練習,以加強學生的閱讀理解能力。譬如:快速抓重點、快速尋找資訊、找主旨、做推論以及從上下文揣測字義等。「大二英文」既定位為「大一英文」之延伸,即便以閱讀與聽力之訓練為其主軸,也勢必含括英語四技:聽、說、讀、寫之相關訓練。
