課程概述 課程目標 課程要求

This course is designed to introduce NTU students to university-level English. It will train students to listen to English news reports derived from leading American and British news publications. It will also guide students to read, discuss and respond to English essays analyzing four popular literary genres including romance, horror, detective and science fiction. Students will have the chance to apply the language skills they have learned through ten listening transcriptions, one essay and various writing exercises, one individual presentation and several in-class discussions, and near the end of this course, through a group presentation in the form of a micro film. Students are expected to attend regularly, to contribute with compassion and creativity, and to show commitment to course assignments and group activities. The course attempts to facilitate English learning beyond technicality—as means to think critically about how contemporary popular culture sheds light on the study of humanities.
