Summary

In this class we will discuss recent articles about current news and events from reputable newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian and Time. You will be able to share your thoughts and opinions on important issues facing modern societies. You will be able to develop arguments and discuss your views with others in a friendly learning environment.

Topics could include: Artificial Intelligence, Climate Change and the Environment, and Cities of the Future.

Format

Each class will focus on one article about an interesting topic. Students will be sent the article before the class, giving them the opportunity to prepare questions and comments, and to think about their opinions.

During the classes we will spend some time answering questions and checking understanding, before moving on to discussing the topics in greater detail. Discussions will develop from one-to-one, to small groups, and whole class debates.

What you can learn from this class

Students can build their confidence in speaking English, gain practice in expressing their opinions in English, deal with differences of opinion in a friendly way, and learn about interesting world affairs.

My experience for the class

I teach English in Taipei to students of all levels and backgrounds. I have a background in academic research, gaining a PhD in psychology and working as a post-doc at the University of Cambridge conducting research funded by the UK government. I have a strong interest in current events and issues, and enjoy hearing others' opinions on the important issues of our time.

Topics selected are all beyond interesting. Questions Kai prepared were thought provoking that made you feel 2 hours goes by so fast and not long enough. You will get to read out the shortened version of the news and ask the vocabularies you don't know during the class. Some debate might be arranged at end of the class to make it more challenging. Highly recommend as usual.

課堂前Kaidy會先提供我們當周的新聞文章讓我們先回去研讀, 課堂並不是只談論新聞內容而已,而是藉由大量的開放式問題讓大家分組討論, 課堂最後如果有時間,還會有辯論的活動,讓大家在時間壓力下,快速討論、整理觀點並發表分享,非常推薦Kaidy的這門課程!
