營北國中英語村參訪


 

   The last activity held by the Advisory Group this year was to take a number of teachers to pay a visit to Yingpei English Village in Nantou County, hoping to gain a more vivid understanding of what Yingpei Junior High School boasts for reference. We were all deeply inspired by the dedicated and professional briefing and instructions of the principal and staff.

創新英語教學培養世界觀

     
To begin with, Cicely Meng noted the importance of intercultural knowledge and awareness in terms of teaching English in a more creative way. By providing many interesting comparisons of expressions from different English-speaking countries, teachers were gradually aware that a more effective teaching can be accomplished through incorporating authentic materials with ready-made textbooks, arousing students’ awareness of diverse cultures. Also, teachers were encouraged to perform a hands-on activity designing their own business card as a glimpse of creative teaching.

100年度勤耕發表-English village and its implication on teaching



English village and its implication on teaching
李國禎 國中英語領域
A number of English villages have popped up all over the island in only a couple of years, and even more of them are now under way. As a member of the Advisory Group, I was given many opportunities to visit several of them, like the ones in Taoyuan, Mialoi, Yunlin and Kaohsiung. Through their English-speaking environment, I was able to see how they made use of native speakers and all sorts of resources to boost young English learners’ interest to learn the language in a more authentic way.
