98年第2學期-3345 大一英文 課程資訊
The general goals of the FENM program are to provide an atmosphere that will enhance students’ participation in a non-threatening environment and help build up students’ confidence in English speaking contexts. To increase students’ ability to apply their knowledge of the English language they have acquired in high schools so that they will be able to achieve fluency in a general context is also a major goal of the FEMN program. To achieve these goals, the FENM program focuses on four language skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Aims of Course
Freshman English for Majors is a four-skills course taught exclusively to majors of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. The goal of the course is primarily to improve students’ proficiency in communicative language skills with an emphasis on speaking and writing. A functional, notional approach is taken to planning objectives to help students gain confidence in using the English in social interactions. Therefore, active participation in the class is a prerequisite for successful completion.
A variety of activities are used throughout the year including dialogues, role-plays, pair work, small group projects and whole class discussions. The syllabus includes a general review of grammar and many class activities attempt to integrate these grammar components. Therefore, students are given the opportunity to apply the rules to real-life situations that they might encounter in an English-speaking country. Teachers encourage students to monitor their grammar usage while improving their level of fluency.
