課程簡介

In this section of Netflix Explained, we will look at a variety of topics from the documentary show Netflix Explained (previously known as Vox Explained). Anything from the first 3 seasons of the show are possibilities. As a class, we’ll vote on which topics you are interested in and make those our focus.

We will cover one new topic per week. Videos are 20 to 25 minutes in length, and since they are on Netflix will have Chinese subtitles.  Vocabulary and discussion questions will be sent out before class as well.  

In addition to the video, most classes will include a reading component that will help to better understand the topic. Readings will be fairly short and at a B2 - C1 level.

Skills developed

Emphasis will be on practicing your speaking, listening, and reading skills in this class (in that order).  The goal is to get deeper and understand the issues in a fun way while learning the vocabulary and grammar necessary to talk about these subjects in a natural way.

You’ll have lots of time to discuss with your teacher and classmates. There will also be a strong focus on correcting common grammar and usage mistakes to transform you into a better and more confident speaker of English!

Thank you! Looking forward to seeing you in class 😊

1. Jody老師準備非常充足,每堂課都會提供額外文章,讓課程討論更廣泛; 2. 上課氣氛活潑,老師能夠提供很好的切入點討論每個主題,即使看起來很生硬的主題也很有收穫; 3. 老師會注意開口較少的同學並讓大家都有發言機會; 4. 缺點:90分鐘稍嫌短,若大家都非常踴躍發言、討論太多生字,整堂課進度就會落後,會覺得討論的不夠完整。

This is my 7th time taking one of Jody’s classes. I really appreciate his teaching strategy and methods. First, the articles that Jody chooses always grab and hold my attention. Second, not only am I improving in my speaking ability, but also my writing skill. His effective teaching methods have been useful for me and have helped me improve my job performance. Therefore, I will continue signing up for Jody’s classes.
