This course is designed for students who would like to develop their English abilities through the latest hot issues, news, and stories that occur in daily life. They will have the opportunity to share opinions and ideas with classmates and teachers. Class activities include group presentations on various topics, such as product introductions, news interviews, and joke-telling contests. Students can record videos and present themselves on relevant topics. Instead of midterm and final exams, students will be graded based on their participation and completion of a variety of in-class assignments and after-class tasks, which will help them gain more confidence in expressing themselves in English.
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 Self-Expression Skills Module. This module enhances students’ oral presentation techniques. It also helps students to improve their listening skills and boost their confidence in public speaking.
On completion of the course, students should be able to
1) deliver a variety of formal and informal presentations in English;
2) present ideas clearly with emphasis on effective use of verbal and nonverbal communication skills;
3) demonstrate critical thinking skills in daily life communication, both as a speaker and as a listener; and
4) express their ideas in English more confidently.
