課程簡介

你了解美國嗎? 你是否想過以下問題?

  1. 為什麼美國有這麼多校園槍擊案件,而槍枝管制法依然鬆散?
  2. 為什麼有些人稱非法移民為 “illegal immigrant”,有些人則用 “undocumented individual” 作為稱呼? 兩者有甚麼差別?
  3. 毒品政策與種族衝突有什麼關聯?

本課程以美國最熱門的話題作為材料,學員可以提升進階程度的英文能力,同時增進對於美國的理解。透過老師的引導,我們將一一拆解這些複雜而且重要的主題。

If you are still hesitating which teacher to choose, I strongly recommend choosing Jody's class. Humor, class management, class theme, etc. I really don’t know how many things he has in his head, and how many things I can learn from him! ! Really recommend, you will like him

A class provides you a path to controversial topics which may not be discussed or may have been neglected among most of the Americans. In the class, you would see and be able to understand better what conflicts a policy maker would face and learn to be more humane and tolerant to different opinions and cultures.

In this class, Jody provides a lot of related information in every aspect. Not only we have learned the difference of immigration policy under Trump and Biden's governance but also have discussed how these policies will affect the society.

Jody is a well-prepared teacher. To help class understand USA's immigration issues from different angles, Jody prepared various materials from news articles, TV series and YouTube clips. We are encouraged to ask questions so to find out the standpoints of these materials and thus be able to get better understanding of this never-ending debates of USA's immigration policies. I enjoyed the class interaction and indeed had learnt more than I expected.

Love every minute of it. This class meets my expectation. I was looking for something not too academic, with very interesting topics of great depth and context. Jody did a great job guiding it. I walked away with much more understanding to the root of why things are the way they are. It’s something I might never learnt if I tried to do on my own, at least not with this efficiency. I would certainly sign up for Jody’s class again without a doubt.

The topic coverage of the class is quite broad and extensive, which helped expand participants' perspectives and exposure. As the topics are all " hot button issues", the discussion and analysis would usually go multidimensionally and sometimes may not be able to go deeper within 1.5 hrs, which would be a tradeoff between breadth and depth. It's an interesting class that offers you source of ideas, with more input and interaction with the teacher and other participants, you gain more from it.

My best English class ever!每一堂課都很享受排除萬難不缺席。老師在課前會提供閱讀材料和提問題讓學生先做準備,課堂上的文章影片等內容非常充實節奏毫無冷場,會輪流詢問每個人的意見,有想法的人可以再補充,偶爾也會請學生讀文章段落並糾正發音,可說是聽說讀都涵蓋到了。因為內容大多是熱門或是具爭議性的議題,有很多討論的空間,藉由閱讀材料和課堂的對話激盪很多新的想法、能用不同角度來思考這些社會議題,我覺得非常充實而享受,Jody老師幽默好相處,誠心推薦這門課:)
