|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 specialized 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.|

To develop reading comprehension skills, students will be required to perform various tasks, such as slash reading, shadowing, vocabulary building, grammar exercises, summarization exercises, pair/group work activities and discussions. In addition to textbook reading selections, practical reading materials from sources such as newspapers, magazines, journals, and other media will be incorporated into the course.
