授業の概要 Course Overview

English is the global language and is important in education, interpersonal relations and business. Using active learning methodology, the ADVANCED ENGLISH 700 course is designed to help students develop the core English language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking to be successful in further academic study and and workplaces. By actively participating in class activities, students will have the confidence and ability to strengthen their ʻFrontier Spiritʼ and bridge the gap between New Asia and the rest of the world.
This advanced English language course provides students with complex readings and listening activities that emphasize the foundational English learnt in the previous terms. The productive and receptive tasks will contain material at the CEFR B2 & C1 and TOEIC® 700 levels score range. This course has a special focus on grammar and vocabulary relevant for the TOEIC® exam learnt through reading, writing, listening, speaking and communication tasks that reinforce previously covered materials throughout the current and previous academic terms but with an increase in the complexity of the materials presented and the tasks required of the students. Across the classes, assignments and tasks are repeated and presented in individual and pair work formats, and homework and individual study components for active learning through online modules are also woven throughout the course. This is a SAC compulsory subject.
Students will be expected to develop and improve their core English language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking by actively participating in class activities and completing all written homework and assignments.
