Outline and objectives

This course, the mid-level communication course in the ERP, aims to further develop students’ speaking and listening skills, by expanding their active repertoire of English vocabulary and structures to allow communication on a range of engaging topics and situations. It uses the textbook’s wide range of topics and themes on society and culture as a springboard for planning, discussion, meeting simulation, presentation and debate activities, with a focus on encouraging active engagement, learner autonomy, and critical thinking. In class, students will receive verbal feedback individually from both their instructor and classmates to help them identify and improve their weak areas. For assigned tasks, students will receive verbal and/or written feedback from their instructor on general progress and points to improve.

Goal

By the end of this course, students will be better able to:
• make effective presentations in English on academic and other topics, in pairs, groups and individually
• expand ability to listen to prepared speeches and multi-party interactions
• engage in and facilitate discussions on a wide range of topics related to their fields of study
• improve pronunciation to maintain a clear diction understandable by native and non-native speakers
• manage common situations when communicating in English both in Japan and when travelling abroad
• communicate actively by employing strategies for explaining, reasoning, persuading, checking and confirming
• express opinions supported by logical reasoning and convincing evidence, and considering multiple points of view
• build analysis and decision-making skills through group discussion activities
• work together with other students in collaborative projects
