SENM, an extension of FENM, is a student-centered course. It features a small class size of no more than 25 students, where English is taught with the goal of raising students’ multi-cultural awareness and competence. Various communicative activities are incorporated into the course to help students to achieve this goal. Themes in the SENM curriculum include, but are not limited to, the following list: (1) Cross-cultural Awareness and Competence (2) Literary Appreciation and Criticism (3) Natural Disasters and Global Cooperation (4) Embracing Diversity & Traditions of Others (5) Citizenship and Responsibility (6) Environmental Awareness and Global Citizenship. In addition to activities suggested by the textbook (Top Notch 3), SENM also incorporates discussions, exhibitions, competitions, and show-and-tell’s to enhance students’ ability to understand, accept, and respect other cultures.
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.
