授業の概要 Course Overview


This course adheres to the overall goals of the Nagoya University of Commerce and Business. Students are expected to develop their critical thinking, diversity awareness, ethical decision making, and effective communication, all while adhereing to the principals of frontier spirit.
This course primarily focuses on the TOEIC test and will provide students with the foundation to learn the English language and productive and receptive skills in preparation to achieve the CEFR B1 level (550-780) at the TOEIC® Listening and Reading score.

Students will be taught TOEIC test strategies alongside general English skills; English skills will include speaking, listening, reading, grammar and vocabulary. Additionally, students will be taught independent learning skills so that they are able to make the best use of their time studying outside of the classroom.

Across the classes, assignments and tasks typical to the junior high school and senior high school English classrooms are repeated and presented in individual and pair work formats. Homework and individual study components for active learning through online modules are also woven throughout the course.
Students will be expected to improve their Engilsh ability which should lead to imrpoved TOEIC scores.

This course will be guided by a lecture, which will be supported by independent study completed by the students outside of class.

There will be weekly vocabulary and grammar tests. The highest 4 scores from tests will contribute to 20% of the final grade (10% Grammar, 10% Vocabulary).

Participant-Centered Learning (PCL) will be incorporated. The independent study outside of class will help prepare students for task-based application within the class and will include written as well as online homework tasks.

Group and peer interaction will occur throughout the semester and will be supplemented with individual work.

担当教員のプロフィール About the Instructor 


Alexander Kilpatrick is an assistant professor at the Nagoya University of Business and Commerce. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Melbourne. Alexander's main area of research involves examining the influence of transitional probability on non-native speech perception. 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.

He is available to meet with students on Wednesdays 11:20 - 12:50 in room 6306.

His areas of interest include Speech perception, Iconicity, Psycholinguistics, Neurolinguistics, Transitional Probability, Phonetics, and Phonology.
