授業の概要 Course Overview


The ENGLISH FUNDAMENTALS course is a component of the teaching credentials program, primarily designed to help students develop the core English language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking to be successful English teachers in Japan. 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.
The ENGLISH FUNDAMENTALS course provides students with the foundation to learn the English language and develop productive & receptive skills in preparation to achieve the CEFR B1 level at the TOEIC® Listening & Reading score 550-780 score range. This course has a special focus on grammar and vocabulary learnt through reading, writing, listening, speaking and communication tasks that reinforce previously covered materials throughout the current academic term and from their senior high school coursework, but with an increase in the complexity of the materials presented and the tasks required of the students.
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.
