英語對話共學團
English Discussion & Study Group

溝通,不求標準完美,但求掌握善用


雖然英語是學校的必修課,但在這個環境裡,有時我們仍會為「開口說英文」這件事感到不自在,進而限制了我們與世界的交流。

由於好時的宗旨之一是協助大家更能享受生活,更輕鬆省力地成就人生,「自在地以外語對話」自然也是跨越限制或障礙的方式之一囉!於是就誕生了好時英語對話共學團



誰特別適合參與?

  1. 需要以英語進行會議、討論或簡報
  2. 準備以英語分享技能、知識或經驗
  3. 想培養邏輯性思考,希望自己能包容多元的觀點
  4. 想練習英語口說與互動,提升英語可用性
  5. 計畫前往英語區深度旅遊、學習或工作


特色

  1. 不需要標準答案
  2. 不用擔心犯錯,在這裡的一切對話都是嘗試
  3. 練習駕馭你現有的資源,並且在共學中擴充它們
  4. 小班共學,確保夥伴們都有充分的練習機會
  5. 共學團提供純露水與茶點供大家品味(好跳痛 :P )


這個共學團真正來說不是「學英語」,而是練習以英語溝通,我們的帶領者 Claire 會準備多元的媒材,透過這些媒材,我們練習看見多元的觀點獨立且具邏輯性的思考傾聽並以英語表達自己的看法

這個過程其實無關文法是否正確、辭藻是否漂亮,而是關乎於你、夥伴們,還有你和周遭空間的互動。


討論主題領域

❶ 地方經濟與環境永續

❷ 弱勢或少數族群的議題

❸ 身心學,身心連結

❹ 韌性,有韌性的人們的故事

(未來持續擴充)


態度上的共識

  1. 以建設性的態度提出你的觀點,不要批評他人的想法
  2. 當共學夥伴試著表達時,請帶著支持與鼓勵的態度
  3. 如果真的找不到詞彙,請創意運用其他方式甚至肢體表達,在討論中克制自己想說中文或台語的衝動

English Discussion & Study Group

We learned to pass English grammar tests in school, but are we really able to express ourselves in English effectively?

Language is a tool to communicate. If we are NOT familiar with that tool, it becomes a barrier, an invisible wall that prevents us from exploration.

There are 2 important components to "expressing yourself in English." The first one is YOU! What is your perspective? What is the background that shapes your viewpoints? The second one is using English. We won't focus on so-called "perfect" English, rather effective communication. This means, simply, communicating so that others can understand what you want to say.

Therefore, this discussion group will focus on information gathering, independent thinking, listening and expressing. There will not be any standard or correct answer. It is just about you, people and the space around you.

Things To Know

① Provide your opinion in a constructive manner. Do not criticize others or their viewpoints.

② Be patient and supportive to your partners who are trying to say something.

③ Use body language if you really cannot find the word. Just try not to speak Mandarin or Taiwanese. This will help you improve.

Facilitator: Claire

Claire is from Denver, Colorado USA. She has spent the previous 3 years living and working in Nanjing, China where she coached Chinese high school students to compete in English debate competitions. Claire graduated from The University of Colorado in 2015 with a degree in political science and Chinese history. She is eager to lead discussions to help with effective English communication skills as well as hear knew perspectives and opinions from group participants.

Topics will be provided within one week prior to our lessons.
