This course is designed for those who are not English majors. We emphasize four skills learning-- reading, writing, listening and speaking. Thus, the textbook we use is four skills oriented, American English File 3. First semester focuses on Grammar and dialogue writing, and second semester will emphasize on play performance. Besides, we will study three short stories -- Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Tess of the D’burvilles. We will have quizzes, writing and oral practice for every short reading. By reading those books, we not only obtain knowledge but develop critical thinking; further, we hope, through discussion, we practice to express or share ideas precisely and clearly to each other.
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.
