|授業科目名||Grammar for Communication（１）|
|科目の目的・到達目標||By the end of this course, students should be able to:
a. communicate using simple and complex sentence structures, including both subject and object relative clauses, allowing them to deal with most situations likely to arise while traveling in an area where English is spoken.
b. exhibit good command with discourse connectors allowing them to produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest.
c. use modals appropriately to describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.
|授業の概要||The main objective of this course is for students to improve their English proficiency to communicate using grammatically correct simple and complex sentence structures. The instructor helps them develop English grammar and communication skills they need in a variety of situations of daily and professional life. The textbook we use consists of 142 units, each of which concentrates on a particular basic point of English grammar. It seems impossible to deal with all of them in only 28 lessons so this course will choose from 142 units especially important units for students majoring in English. Each unit is composed of two facing pages. On the left-hand page there are explanations and examples, whereas on the right-hand page there are a lot of excercises. Students are required to read & understand the explanations and the examples of at least 4 to 5 units and do the excercises before each class. The class is conducted mainly in English but sometimes supported in Japanese for the students who are not used to terminologies and explanations in English.|
|授業計画||Following the class schedule, students are required to read the explanations on the right-hand pages and do the excercises on the left-hand pages before each class.
