Time Span: 4 Periods(Two for Section A and Two for Review of Section A ,Reading Skills and Section B)

Section A Learning a Foreign Language

Teaching Precedures:

I. Pre-reading Activities: Listen, Look & Say

1. Questions & Answers(Oral Practice)

1).What problems do you have in trying to learn English in your middle school?

(Like most students of my age, I had to be faced with many problems in learning English, such as pronunciation, grammar rules, and cultural background. And the most frustrating one was how to memorize a large body of new words. As far as the college life is concerned now, however, my big trouble with English learning is that my class is very large and I have few chances to practice my spoken English in class.)

 

2).Do you think the computer can help you in learning English? Why or why not?

(Because the computer, once networked, allows us more access to the outside world. I have found the computer course, though as difficult as regular classroom study, very suitable for me. For one thing, I have more freedom to set the pace of study for myself. For another, I could select the material to my taste or based on my English level. And best of all, I have more chances to exchange ideas with native speakers, without much worry about making mistakes.)

 

3). What other things do you think we can gain through English language learning?

(As a most rewarding experience of mine, learning English can bring me a lot of benefits. To begin with, it can teach me the value of practice. The more practice I do in listening, speaking, reading and writing, the more progress I make in English. Besides, it can give me insights into other cultures, keeping my mind open to new ways of thinking. And above all, it can help me communicate with many more people than before. Now talking with people in English is one of my favorite activities.)

 

2. Watch the video and then discuss the topics as follows:(Episode clipped from The Sound of Music)

1). What insight can we get from the video?

(The same holds true for our English learning. For example, when you come across in reading such phrases as “far from perfect”, “hunger for knowledge” and “put yourself in others’ shoes”, you may find nothing special in them. But when they are linked to the Chinese expressions “远不尽人意求知欲” and “设身处地为人家想想” , with which you are familiar, they are now well worth your attention. To sum up, the better combination there is of  the unfamiliar and the familiar in your study, the greater interest you will take in the course.)

 

2). What new light does the video throw on our English study?

(So the best course open to us now is to apply what we have learned from books to what we are familiar or concerned with in our daily life. For instance, we are going to learn the sentence “ Now that I speak a foreign language, instead of staring into space when English is being spoken, I can participate and make friends”. We can use the pattern to express what is on our minds, such as “Now that the new college life is here to challenge us, instead of staying only  in our dreams, all we can do is to face it cheerfully”. In short, where there is a better application of your knowledge to your life there is more progress. )
