Summary

In this class, we will explore various viewpoints on current events and hot topics around the world. Through discussion, students will expand upon their abilities to express opinions by learning the conflicting sides of pressing issues.

Students will learn to more confidently articulate ideas using English and learn to properly use new vocabulary. 

Format

We will prepare for each class by reading an assigned article. Students will make notes, jot down any questions they might have, and highlight words they are unfamiliar with to begin the class discussion. 

We will then analyze the topic from different angles, put the article into context, and learn new vocabulary. 

There will be time to practice discussion through role-playing scenarios and activities/games. 

In some classes, there may be short writing exercises to help enforce new sentence patterns. 

What you can learn from this class

critical thinking skills, vocabulary, speaking, and writing.

My experience for the class

I have a degree in English Literature and Language and a minor in Journalism from the University of North Carolin at Asheville. I have worked for newspapers and edited for various companies in both Asia and the US. Currently, I work as a marketing content writer for a Taiwanese/American company.
