概要
The Faculty of Environmental and Symbiotic Sciences offers Intermediate English I (IE I) to its second-year students. IE I will build on what students learned in their first year of university English. The main focus will be on increasing students' reading and writing skills, but students will be expected to speak and listen to English. Students will learn to improve their reading speed; increase their vocabulary levels; and evaluate, summarize and discuss reading material. Homework will include preparation for class time and activities to enhance students' personal learning.

In addition to surveying a number of relevant topics in Japan and the world, this class will give students the opportunity conduct independent Internet research, with instruction given in how to use some common Internet tools and websites. In the final classes of the semester, students will have the opportunity to share their research and lead related discussions.
到達目標
Intermediate English I (IE I) builds on second-year students' university English and Internet-using abilities. IE I will help students use computers to search for information on the Internet, then prepare and lead a discussion about that topic. Evaluating vocabulary, reading and writing will all be emphasized. Students completing IE I will have the ability to discuss timely topics of interest in English.

By the end of this course students should:
1) Have improved pronunciation and understanding of English word stress
