|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 class students will read a variety of different texts covering a number of topics and develop basic reading skills. There will be pair or group discussions based on the readings and students will be expected to actively participate in discussions.
