Summary

In this class, we will discuss the issues brought up by the speakers from TED Talks, including a variety of subjects and current social issues.

Format

Before each lesson, I will choose one or two TED Talks videos for students to watch on their own. In class, we will discuss the contents of the videos together. Students can ask questions about anything they don't understand, and they can express their own views about the subject matter. 

What you can learn from this class

Students can practice speaking English in a supportive environment, learn how to express their opinions in English, and learn something new about the world through others' perspectives.

My experience for the class

I've been teaching English in Taiwan for six years, and my background in psychology gives me the tools to analyze others' thought processes and cultural differences.

老師會針對Ted影片中的內容做詳細的討論,並針對內容引導大家做進一步思考、討論。雖然Ted Talk的影片有提供字幕,但透過老師在課堂上的引導、討論,我覺得該課程適合想練習批判性思考的學習者。
