Summary

The goal of this class is to test and improve your English skills by studying engaging videos, podcasts or articles and debating them in class. I like challenging my students with questions that require them to really think about their answer and encourage interaction between students. The resources I select for this class tend to be a little challenging and require a good level of English to fully understand. I like to choose topics that allow us to move on past merely our understanding of the material and focus on debating our own opinions and insights, which makes this class a good pick for student that really want to fine-tune their English ability, as well as those that are looking for an interesting debate. If you prefer a more accessible class I recommend checking out my Upper-Intermediate class.

Format

I will provide you with a medium length (20 - 30 min) video or article a few days before class and several comprehension questions that will help you fully understand them. The source material can be about a variety of topics, such as history, philosophy, psychology, culture, and modern society. I will also include several questions that encourage you to develop your own opinions about the topic to prepare you for the debate section of the class.

During class time, we'll discuss the video or article itself to make sure everyone has fully understood the topic, but the majority of the class will be focused on debating the questions provided for preparation and anything else that might come up in the process. My roll will generally be to ask questions, guide the discussion, and encourage debate among students. I can also provide my own insights whenever required, as I'm sure to have my own opinions on whatever we're talking about.

*Sample  Material: Is Everything Socially Constructed?

What you can learn from this class

Students will improve their reading and listening skills by studying the provided materials before class. More importantly, they'll learn how to developed, express and defend in-dept opinions on a variety of topics. This is a key ability for high level English speakers and is a relevant skill within business, educational, and social environments.

My experience for the class

I love running classes set up around discussion and debate. I have a background in both history and philosophy, which makes me especially well suited teach these skills. Several years of living and traveling on different continents has also granted me an open mind and the ability to ask questions you might not have even thought about before.

老師本身的學涵很好,尤其在哲學及歷史方面,也感覺得出來對時事也很廣泛涉獵。整堂課下來,老師問了許多滿發人省思的問題,就老師教導的部份,非常有知識性。
