99% Invisible ─ 生活中容易被忽略的設計

99% Invisible: Everyday Design

Danny

Danny 畢業自美國 UC Davis,主修政治溝通,畢業後到華府工作,後來發現自己難以融入美國的政治環境,於是開始世界旅行。他曾待過越南與台灣,從事英語教學有兩年的經驗。平時他喜歡看電影,最近喜歡的電影是《大佛普拉斯》。


課程簡介

99% Invisible(意思為「隱形的99%」)是一個獨立電台節目,名稱來自哲學家巴克敏斯特·富勒的一句話:「事物中99%都是隱形和觸摸不到的。」,節目宗旨是認識生活中容易被忽視的議題,每集專注於一個主題,內容精彩有趣而且節奏明快,適合作為討論課程的材料。

本課程專注在口說的練習,老師將於每週課前於課程群組內公佈當週教材,請大家先行聽過,每週準備時間約20-30分鐘。

​選文範例:早年台灣沒有人做垃圾分類,但近年來台灣的回收率在世界能夠排到前五名,這項成果歸因於貼近人性的制度和可愛的垃圾車,完整內容請見連結

問題範例:

  1. Do you think Taiwanese people are more aware of their waste, compared to other countries?
  2. Are you tired of the same two trash truck songs? 

進行方式

  1. 老師帶領閱讀文章,並解釋較為困難的單字以及學員不理解的地方。
  2. 針對指定的問題進行討論,學員將能練習表達自己的想法。
  3. 過程中,老師將引導發言、提出見解,以增進討論的趣味與豐富。

備註

課程目標

  • 幫助學員更流暢自然地以英文表達想法
  • 每次的練習都更增進英文口說的自信
  • 練習以英文討論各種議題

*本課程適合多益700分/全民英檢中高級的學員參加。

Summary

99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed design that shape our world.

Format

Students will listen to either a full episode or a clip of the podcast 99% Invisible. We will then discuss the episode and how these design topics relate to daily life in Taipei and around the world.

The class is meant for discussion and debate.

My experience for the class

The objective of this class is to be more aware of the world around us, and the things that we don't often think about, as well as to improve our English skills.

Danny的課選文都蠻有趣的,會點出很多生活中不會注意到的細節,而且Danny也都會帶大家討論和台灣的作法哪裡不一樣,並且分享他在台灣生活看到的文化差異,讓我們討論完對文章更有共鳴。建議上課前一定要看完文章,並且稍微找一些相關資訊,上課的時候才比較好發揮。整體來說Danny是一個很親切可愛的老師,只要學生有準備而且多發言,上他的課還蠻有趣。

I liked the first class very much, but the second class was not as enjoyable. Because I did not have many opinions to share (nevertheless other students had many opinions!). The 3rd and 4th classes were fine, I feel the content really mattered, I could talk more about something, but the 2nd class was not easy for me.

Teacher Danny is very friendly. He always encourages us to express our opinions without any judgement which allows me speak freely. At the same time, I become more willing to listen to others with different ideas.

很細膩的老師,有次某位同學打斷另一位同學的發言,場面有一點尷尬,但Danny巧妙地把話題再導回被打斷的那位同學身上,那位同學得以把想法說完,這是我上課遇到很印象深刻的一次經驗。
