The language of instruction is English. Students are expected to participate actively during classes and complete an oral presentation at the end of the semester. The presentation should include an element of persuasion. Students are also expected to write a one-page abstract for their talk in advance. The above course plan is tentative and subject to revision during the semester, depending on students’ progress and, to an extent, topics of your interest.


【成績評価の方法】 Evaluation system                                                          

E-learning (20%), class-level participation (20%), individual-level participation (20%), presentation abstract (10%), presentation (30%)

E-learning (20%) will reflect students’ overall completion rate (10%) and final assignment score (10%) in eFACE. For the final assignment, students will be asked to write a 2-3 page essay with at least two references. Final grades will be determined based on an absolute (not relative) achievement, taking into account marks (in percent) for all components listed above:

S:100%~90
A:89%~80%
B:79%~70%
C:69%~60%
F: < 59%

Across all topics and levels of teaching, I generally believe that the ultimate goal of teaching is to help students to develop self-confidence and independent attitude towards learning. To this end, I would like to make it my common practice to review the principles and teachings in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey, 1989) and update what I believe to be common sense. That is, I would like to make sure that students (and I) become/remain proactive by focusing on what can be controlled rather than what cannot be controlled, have specific goals in mind, and set their priorities straight to achieve what is important in the long-run. Because second language acquisition requires painstaking commitment, unlike acquisition of the first language, the proactive, ambitious, and independent attitudes are, I believe, particularly important. In assisting students to become mature by developing the above habits, I will be careful not to impose my own opinions, without first listening to students’ thoughts.
