Summary

In this class we will look at English from a different perspective: the perspective of a person who wants to understand better the everyday workings of the English language.

Format

Students will have an article and/or a video to watch before class. Around this material we will base our discussions. We will talk as a class and for certain parts of the material we will have small group discussions.

Class #1--Talking about things and describing objects

Class #2--The correct order of adjectives

Class #3--Onomatopoeia and Personification

Class #4--Swearing to ease pain and a certain 'F' word

Class #5--Speaking honestly

Class #6--Insensitive Questions and How to Deal with Them

What you can learn from this class

We will take what we think we know about the language and break it apart, dissect it, talk about it, and practice using it in different ways. We will look at adjective use. We will practice describing things we don't know the words for. We will get a better understanding of how swearing works. We will work with sound words and special types of sentences that make using English more exciting.

My experience for the class

After graduating university with a bachelor of science, I came to Taiwan with my wife, a lovely Taiwanese lady, in 2003. I started helping adults with English in 2005 when I began working at David's English Centre, where I have been teaching for the past 13 years. I enjoy talking about human psychology, philosophy, English; I am an enthusiastic question asker; talking about movies and books always interests me. Language learning should be fun and exciting. When I am in class with my students and we are coming along nicely with a discussion, I become excited, watching everyone communicating in English, seemingly unconcerned about proper grammar or choosing the right words.

Sean對於各種想法、意見都抱持非常開放的態度,課程雖然有訂主題,但也會隨著大家的討論發展出不同的可能性。課前的準備與課後的補充都很用心,大家在發言的時候,Sean也會用不打斷的方式提醒文法的錯誤。 如果之後時間允許,想要繼續跟Sean上課~!
