授業の概要 Course Overview


This is a SAC compulsory subject.

This course will provide students with the foundation to develop English language competence. It will help students develop productive and receptive skills in preparation to achieve the CEFR B1 level at the TOEIC® Listening and Reading score (550-780 score range).
This course focuses on building up business English vocabulary, understanding English grammar, and making use of the knowledge through reading, listening, speaking, and communication tasks in various business situations.
Across the classes, language assignments and tasks typical to the junior high school and senior high school English classrooms are repeated and presented in individual, pair, and group work formats. Homework and individual study components also provide students with active learning opportunities throughout the course.

Term 4 also presents a Case Study component, which is to help students develop their analytical and critical thinking skills on a topic worthy of discussion in the business profession. Students will be instructed to prepare for a case study discussion in class and later submit a report on what they have learned from the case.
