Presentation Transcript

  1. Materials & Resources • things you need & things to help you in your English study

  2. Notebooks • You should make your own style of notes. For this, lines and squares are not good. • Recommendation: brown notebook from Mujirushi (180 yen); or Sketch book by Maruman (180 yen), available at Amatrias, etc.

  3. Notebooks 2 • You should make many notes. You should fill at least 1 notebook in the semester. • Making notes helps you remember. Making notes in a different way of the same information helps even more. • A good way is to take quick notes in a class; then make better notes after class on the opposite page.

  4. Visual Mapping • Visual mapping is a way to help you write things in a meaningful and attractive way. • It helps you see the RELATIONSHIPS between things and ideas. see the book “Mapping Inner Space”, by Margulies, Nancy Call no.:153.1||Ma 51

  5. An example (high school science)

  6. Another science example

  7. Lecture notes

  8. Make your own style • If the notes are meaningful and useful for you, don’t worry what they look like. • Your notebook should look different from other students’ notebooks.

  9. Files, folders • I give every student a file for the TALK system. • If you’re lucky and have a big one, you may like to keep your B5 papers in the file. • Anyway is OK, but make sure you don’t lose handouts.

  10. Dictionaries • An English-English dictionary is very useful for your study. • It’s important that definitions & explanations are easy to understand.

  11. Some good dictionaries • Oxford Learner’s Wordfinder Dictionary • WordPower Fully-Bilingual Dictionary (Ei-Ei-Wa Jiten) • Longman Essential Activator • Longman Kirihara Shoten Gendai Ei-Ei Jiten

  12. The library • Most English books are on the third floor. • English readers are usually in the 800’s (around 830) • Search the library at: • http://wwwlib.pu-kumamoto.ac.jp/cgi-bin/limedio/limewwwopac/

  13. Tape library (language center) • The tape library has many videos (mainly movies) • There are a few DVDs, too. Some have English and Japanese subtitles (jimaku).Music DVDs are hidden. You need to search or ask. • Search the tape library at: • http://www-flec.pu-kumamoto.ac.jp/

  14. Learning English with movies:a few hints • Use English subtitles (at least sometimes) if available. • Choose a short segment (2-5 minutes). Watch 10 times. • Buy the Screenplay book (daihon, available in Kinokuniya). • If you enjoy a movie, watch the same one 2 or 3 times.
