【Title: English for Self-Guided Tourists】
This course is designed for the students who plan to take self-guided trips in places where English is used as an official language or a lingua franca. To enhance students' ability to communicate effectively and confidently in English during every international trip, teaching materials that accommodate most students’ current English abilities and address comprehensive travel scenarios are selected. Skill-enhanced class activities and diverse evaluative measures are also incorporated into this course to attain those objectives. In addition to language proficiency, this course aims to nurture the students' intercultural competences so that they can behave in tune with local people in diverse situations while traveling overseas.
The SENM program is a student-centered module-based program which offers students choices and small, interactive classes. The program encourages students to tailor their English learning to their specific needs and interests by offering four semester-based modules: Career and Profession, Daily Communication, Multiculturalism, and Self-Expression Skills. Additionally, within each of the four modules, there are different themes, or topics, around which each course‘s curriculum is built. Each SENM student can choose two different module courses in one academic year according to their needs and interests. The program’s small class size (no more than 25 students) means that a variety of class activities such as discussions, role plays, and presentations are an integral part of the program.
This specific course belongs to the Daily Communication Module. This module emphasizes real-life English for effective communication. It provides conversation models and practices for a variety of common scenarios in everyday life. Apart from daily-life vocabulary, frequently-used colloquial and idiomatic expressions are the two major language components covered.
On completion of the course, students should be able to
1) use effectively the vocabulary and expressions acquired in the course to address daily-life topics;
2) use spontaneously the conversation strategies acquired in the course to initiate, sustain, and end communication;
3) communicate with others effectively in various daily-life situations; and
4) express themselves in English more confidently.
