教育目的/授業目標 This subject aims to develop students' skills, knowledge, and experience for successful English discussion in academic and international settings, such as those encountered during Q&A sessions at conferences. In addition to discussing their own research, students will improve their awareness of the cultural factors in discussion and boost their abilities to function actively and successfully in inter-cultural environments, over a broad range of topics.
指導方針 This is a student-centered communicative language subject and accordingly, active student participation is expected in a range of pair and small-group discussions.
