Very often, outside of local Taiwanese news, we only hear about the news that affects the global community. We usually don't get many opportunities to learn about issues that are focused more on the UK. I hope to share and discuss more about specific situations in the UK and how British people are reacting to them.
Topics will be up-to-date, and relevant to the week's news. However, likely subjects include:
Discussion topics will also include (hopefully) more optimistic news!
What you'll learn
Students will learn about different perspectives on the current important topics in the UK. They will also be able to understand British society more deeply. Finally, students will improve their vocabulary, critical thinking, and discussion skills.
I am a CELTA-qualified teacher with 6 years' experience in England, Japan, and Taiwan. I am also on an MA Education course for English Language. I studied Philosophy at UCL, so I like to create interesting discussions and draw on different perspectives in class.
Students will be given a relevant article or news video before class. In class, we will discuss the article and the topic in general. Depending on the topic, discussion will include small debates. I will also choose key topic-related vocabulary to review and practice together.
