英語によるアカデミックライティングを支援

2014年にスーパーグローバル大学創生支援(SGU)事業に採択された東洋大学では、「グローバル人材」の育成を様々な方面から目指し、力を注いでいます。
その一つにランゲージセンターの取り組みがあり、ランゲージセンターでは特にアカデミックライティングの強化を支援しているのが特徴です。
外国人英語講師が一対一の個別指導をしますので疑問点はその場で解決でき、自分のレベルとペースに合わせて学習を進めることが可能です。また授業は全て英語で行われるため、ライティングだけではなく、リスニングやコミュニケーション能力など総合的な英語力の強化を目指すことが可能です。

 

自律した学習者の育成

ランゲージセンターのライティング講座の最大の特徴は「自律した学習者の育成」です。
自律した学習とは、単に与えられた問いに対する答えを考えたり、与えられた知識を暗記したりするのではなく、「自ら問いを立て、その問いに対する答えを自らの力で発見」することです。
ライティング講座では、この考えに則り、講師は受講生の提出物を添削して返却するだけではなく、誤りの方向性(スペルや文法、表現など)を記すヒントを記入し、受講生は自らの力で誤りを正していきます。そうすることで、汎用性の高い本物のライティング力が身に着くと考えています。
実際、2020年度に実施した講座では、講座終了時のアンケートで9割以上の受講生が講座に満足と回答しており、ライティング力の伸びを多くの学生が感じています。

ランゲージセンター講師紹介

 

Edward Chmura
 Ed
Hi, everyone. My name is Edward Chmura, and I would like to welcome all of you to this new semester of the Toyo University Language Center Academic Writing Course.

I am originally from Chicago, Illinois, which is one of the largest cities in the United States. Located near the tip of Lake Michigan in the center of the United States, Chicago is also home of some of the tallest buildings in America.

I have more than 10 years of experience teaching English and even long experience as a Japanese-to-English translator. Because of this, I think I have good insights into why Japanese students make certain mistakes in English and what they need to do mentally in order to stop making mistakes.

My hobbies are running, playing the guitar, podcasting, and YouTubing. I also enjoy talking and with people.

Hello! My name is Kristy.
I was born and raised in San Diego, California. San Diego is a city on the Pacific coast of California known for its beaches, parks, and warm climate.
 
I have been teaching for over 5 years. I’m very passionate and committed to creating a supportive, engaging, motivating, and student-centered environment.

In my free time, I like to play the guitar, sing, read, watch movies and play video games.

Hello everyone! My name is Marin Ekstrom. I am excited to be part of the Toyo University Language Center team! I would be happy to get to know you and help you out as much as I can. 

I am from Two Harbors, Minnesota, U.S.A. Two Harbors is a small town on the shores of Lake Superior. It is like the Hokkaido of America-- the nature is beautiful, but the winters are very cold! 

I have been teaching English for about 4 years and have taught in China, Russia, and Finland. I am always happy to get to know students and help them in their language learning journeys. 

I am interested in international relations and like to read and write articles about it. I also enjoy exploring Tokyo-- Ueno Park and the Edo-Tokyo Museum are my favorite spots so far!

Hello everyone!  My name is Justin.  Thank you for coming to the Language center at Toyo.  I am looking forward to helping you improve your English writing skills.

I am originally from the United States.  I was born in New Jersey and spent my childhood there.  However, I lived in New York City for 11 years before moving to Japan!  New York is known for its variety of people and great food.  Living in New York allowed me to interact with people of all nationalities and backgrounds. I have been living in Japan for almost 3 years now and love being here.

I enjoy hiking and outdoor activities.  I like traveling to different countries and sightseeing. Listening to music and watching movies are also pastimes of mine.

Hi everyone and thank you for visiting the Language Centre! My name is Nora and I’m very excited to be your English writing instructor!

I am originally from Toronto but I also lived in Montreal for about 8 years, so I feel like I have two hometowns. Toronto is in the English part of Canada. It is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. I grew up with many different nationalities and I feel like that is why I constantly crave travelling and exploring. 
Living in Montreal allowed me to experience francophone culture. Montreal is famous for its many festivals and delicious poutine which consists of French fries, gravy and cheese. Though I wouldn’t recommend it if you are on a diet ^_^

I have been living in Japan for about 3 years. I visited Japan in 2016 and I immediately fell in love with Tokyo. I love its busy areas like Shinjuku and Shibuya but I also love its quiet neighborhoods and abundant nature. I also enjoy Japanese arts like Kabuki and Ikebana. Someday, I would like to attend a Tea Ceremony.

In my free time, I like to read, play piano, learn Japanese, and walk around Tokyo’s neighbourhoods, especially near rivers like Meguro and Shakuji. I also like to go on day trips to surrounding areas such as Hakone and Kamakura.
I love teaching English and watching my students learn and grow. With hard work and a good attitude, language learning can be fun! I look forward to seeing you in the centre!
