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.
