近几年来,我校的外籍教师一直积极承担中学部的选修课工作,本学期申报的选修科目多达20人/次,成功开设15人/次。外教们利用自己的特长、爱好和语言特色,开设了古希腊古罗马神话、美国音乐发展史、迪斯尼动画电影发展史、辩论与演讲、虚拟旅行以及西班牙语、韩语、德语等富有国际文化特色和语言他色的课程,既丰富了我校的选修课内容,彰显了外国语学校的外语特色优势,又打造了校园的多元文化氛围,为广大同学提供了一个感受异国语言、文化的良好平台。




以下是部分外教对该门选修课的简要介绍。

  1. 虚拟旅行Virtual travel

    Students will learn about the unique cultures, traditions, food, interesting facts and popular landmarks of different countries. The class will aim at teaching students about different countries using captivating images and videos and arouse their curiosity by introducing them to interesting facts.---Sandra

    学生将通过VR技术了解到各个国家不同的风土人情、特色风景以及异域文化。这门课旨在通过具有特色的图片和影像唤起学生们的好奇心和求知欲。

  2. 通过电影学习西班牙语Learning Spanish with movies

    Learning Spanish with movies is the best unconventional way to do so because of several reasons; for instance, movies are just plain fun, they tend to use natural conversational Spanish which you will not gain with textbooks. Also, you could end up discussing about a great variety of Spanish and Latin American topics making you culturally fluent. A more specific purpose for this course is the image Association. We will have situational images to associate with your newly learned phrases, words, and grammar. After this, students will focus on short segments where there is only one voice (or two at the most). Then, they will get together with a classmate to do any of the flowing using a segment or the whole movie as a theme.---Karen

    通过电影学习西班牙语是一种最好的非传统西语学习方式,在自然的日常对话中学生能够学习到比教科书上更加生动的语言和用法,同时学生也将在图像与新学的词汇、短语和语法之间建立思维联系。之后我们会讨论一些以西班牙和拉美文化为话题的讨论,促进学生们的对于多元文化的认识

  3. 辩论与演讲Public Speaking (Debate, formal and informal speeches)

    Learning how to read and write English language is important, but so is speaking. In this lesson students will be encouraged to speak ONLY in English language. They will have an opportunity to debate on the topics presented during the lesson and openly share their opinions and ideas. They will also have an opportunity to partake in formal and informal speeches.---Tarryn Kesten

    演讲是英语学习的重要方面,在本课中学生们将有机会就老师提供的热点话题发表自己的观点并进行辩论,同时老师也会对正式及非正式演讲的方法和技巧进行指导。

  4. 古希腊古罗马神话故事 Mythology

    Heroes and monsters; gods and devils; wisdom and folly; the beginning and the end—this is a course focused on the stories that have shaped cultures around the world. We will look at mythological stories not as a way that ancient cultures have tried to explain scientific phenomena, but as tools to pass down wisdom from one generation to the next—wisdom that is still as valid today as it was 3,000 years ago. We will read stories, watch movies, and discuss tales from the classics of Rome and Greece to the tall-tales of early United States history. ----Joseph

    神话故事是西方文化的起源,我们并非试图以古老的文化来解释科学的现象,而是将它们作为一种古老智慧的传递方式,代代相传——起源于3000年前而今依然适用的古老智慧。我们将通过阅读故事、赏析影视片段、讨论古罗马古希腊经典神话故事等方式来进行学习研究。

    今后,我们将继续鼓励外教们开设这样各具特色的选修课程,充分利用外教的有利资源,开拓学生们的视野,丰富学生们的学习生活,营造具有外语特色和多元文化的校园氛围。
