講座内容

If you want to comprehend and speak English better, this course can help. This term, we'll do three stories from the original cassette-tape version of "News Tapes 1." The book features realistic broadcast news stories. Each student will receive a CD containing the three stories. In class, you'll receive an A3-sized copy of the two transcription pages of an assigned story. Most of the words in the story are missing. At home, transcribe it (listen to the story and fill in the blanks with the words you hear), then bring the paper to class the following week. Through this individual listening and transcription work at home and group discussion and pair work in class, you'll have plenty of practice listening and speaking. It's a great way to build vocabulary, improve listening comprehension, and reinforce good grammar and intonation. We'll also spend some time studying newspaper headlines and the opening paragraphs in newspapers, which should be interesting.
