授業の概要 Course Overview


1. Relevance to NUCB Mission Statement
This course aims to enhance students' English proficiency, by tackling TOEIC Reading/Listening
questions. Students must gain excellent English command to "succeed in the
globalised business reality" because English has already become the global language.
2. Importance of this Course
This course concentrates on reinforcing the knowledge of basic grammatical/ vocabulary/phonological
rules: students will be able to improve their English proficiency, targeting TOEIC Score for 500
This course employs integrated-skill approach (e.g., synchronised reading; prosodic/contents
shadowing): students will be able to enhance both reading and listening skills in parallel.

[IMPORTANT NOTICE]
1.This is a TOEIC-Compulsory Subject where students are required to take a June TOEIC for Terms 1/2. If you do not take the TOEIC in June, you will lose the credits for failing to complete the course (regarded as being "incomplete").
2. As clearly indicated above, this course is intended for students who aim for a TOEIC score of 500, not those with a score of 500 and over. Therefore, to ensure the fairness of evaluation, a different target score (their current score + 100) is set to evaluate students with a TOEIC score of over 500.

[NOTE]
1. Please be sure to bring a copy of the TOEIC score report, as well as the textbook below, on Day1.
TOEIC part (20%) cannot be included in their evaluation unless the students submit their current TOEIC
score.
2. Students without a TOEIC score who belong to the faculties other than International Studies are exempt
from the above condition.
3. The course schedule is subject to change, depending on the needs/progress of the class.

3. Learning Goals
This course aims to motivate students to study English diligently and autonomously, which could
serve as a springboard to further international learning/working experiences: students will be able to
achieve an international perspective and cross-cultural communication skills.
This course provides a lot of opportunities to be exposed to cultural and linguistic differences: students
will be able to become an engaged and global-minded person.

More specifically, it focuses on the chance of sounds co-occurring in a language and makes predictions as to how listeners will misperceive non-native speech based on that chance.
