Two types of classes will be offered : the one is using a textbook, and the other is with my original handouts.
Regarding the preparation for the classes with the textbook, do all the exercises in the textbook and take the tests on the Learning Management System. Listen to the sample voice over and over, and practice pronunciation until you can pronounce it the same way.
As for the preparation for the classes with the self-made handouts, please make sure to read the contents of the range of the handouts until you understand enough, and do all the exercises. You will have a review test in the next week's class.


Classes will follow the order in the textbook. If there is any change of the order, advance notice will be provided in class. Supplementary materials may be provided in class.
