Introduction to Communication and Research -Chuo University; Faculty of Law

Mondays 4th Period

In this course you will develop your confidence for communicating and expressing your ideas in English. You will also develop your ability to research and explain information clearly and use English to learn about global issues that interest you. In the first semester, you will use English to get to know other students, and talk about your own experiences and easy-to-read books. You will also do out-of-class listening practices to develop your English listening. In the second semester, you will develop your ability to read and make notes about different global issues. You will learn about these issues in 2 or 3 short research projects, where you explain, discuss and present in pairs and small groups. In both semesters, you’ll have many chances to practice speaking English and develop your critical understanding of the world with other students.

この授業では、英語でコミュニケーションを行い自分の意見を表現することに自信をつけることを 目的とする。また、リサーチをしてその情報を明確に説明する力をつけ、自分に興味のあるグロ ーバルな問題について英語を使って学んでゆく。春学期には、英語を使って他の受講生と知り合 い、自分の経験や平易な英語で書かれた本について語り合う。また、英語のリスニング力をつけ るために、リスニングの練習という課題に取り組む。秋学期には、様々なグローバルな問題につ いて本を読んでノートをとる力をつける。2ないし3回の短期のリサーチ・プロジェクトにおいてこう した問題について学び、ペアや少人数のグループで説明、議論、発表を行う。春学期、秋学期と もに他の受講生と英語を話す練習をし、世界について批判的に理解を深める機会が多数ある。
