This class will help students to develop speaking and listening skills in the academic context. We will listen to short academic lectures and students will lead discussions and give presentations on a variety of issues related to 'life and society' throughout the course. The topics are the same as in Sakubun Enshu chukyu, so students will be able to deepen their understanding as well as recycle their vocabulary across the two courses. We use the second half of the textbook in this class, and the first half in the first semester (Eikaiwa Enshu shokyu). All in all, the Sakubun and Eikaiwa courses make up a stimulating, integrated language learning experience that you are sure to find rewarding.
