講演内容 (Abstract)

English language education is becoming an increasingly important factor in determining the success of scientists and engineers as they enter the profession on graduation from university and continue to develop their career skills. Traditionally, university English programs have focused on 'general' English skills, providing the same materials in the same way to all students regardless of their department. However, the needs of students in science and engineering are much clearer and more specific than those of many other students. Therefore, a more focused and carefully designed English program is required. In this talk, I will first present a practical model for university English education that is tailored for scientists and engineers and can be implemented at any intuition regardless of the size of its student body or their starting ability level. I will also address the issue of non-specialist English teacher training and the roles of specialists in the design of English programs. Next, I will show results that clearly demonstrate the success of the proposed model in a very large-scale science and engineering English program in Japan. Finally, I will discuss the importance of English education in the workplace and offer practical ways in which companies may offer English support to their workers beyond simply forcing them to attend English conversation classes or take English proficiency tests.
