|科目の目的・到達目標||The English Reading courses aim to help students become comfortable with English texts of general interest, including newspaper and magazine articles and other works in prose, either fiction or non-fiction, and by the second year with specialised materials in the Policy Sciences and Cultural Studies. Work in the courses will include activities designed to help students understand the basic structures of English sentences, paragraphs, and essays, improve reading comprehension and speed, and identify and form critical judgements about the key issues and main ideas in the texts under discussion.|
|授業の概要||In this course, students will read newspaper articles and excerpts from magazines and books. They will also watch a news program in the Unite States.
Students will be required to read two or three essays at home as assignment every week. In classroom, they will answer comprehensive and vocabulary questions to check their understanding and discuss the topics in the essays. They will be also asked to make a presentation on the topic related to the reading materials.
