老師 Erich 擁有扎實的學術訓練，將帶領學員增廣見聞、磨練思考與臨場表達能力。
Anthropology is the study of human cultures and societies all over the world. By studying how groups of people live their lives, and how these behaviors have evolved over time, anthropologists try to help us understand what it means to be human by exploring the wide range of different human experiences.
In this class, we will use an anthropological approach to look at current issues across the globe. We will try to not only learn about what is happening in the world, but develop a deeper understanding of "the world" as a place made up of many different human groups, and their many different cultures. We will look at how current events relate to topics such as politics, gender, personal identity, religion and other key social structures.
Each week, I will introduce a main topic theme. This will include things like religion, politics, economics, gender, or the environment. I will then select an interesting and recent news article, podcast or short video that is related to this topic. Using my background in anthropology (master's and PhD), I will generate questions and discussion points based on this that will make for a fun, engaging conversation for all - no matter what your knowledge is of anthropology! Sometimes the language will be challenging, but I will explain how key terms/phrases are used in class to help improve English language skills.
