C2 G1 PhotoPrograms in Communication

In order to promote the very best atmosphere for learning English, we have developed a program that focuses on Communication as an area of study. Through this focus on Communication we offer practical and applied knowledge by studying the most effective methods and relevant forms of communication. We engage students by having them tackle real-life communication issues, develop usable communication skills, and bring real-world issues, and best practices to the classroom.


Communication Studies 101 – Jiayang TV

In recent years there has been a huge change in broadcast news and public affairs programming. The way we talk on TV, “TV Talk” was once packaged and presented to the audience as a simple story but increasingly, TV Talk shows and the News are organized around spontaneous encounters between a combination of journalists, public figures, and ordinary citizens. This course examines a few examples of these encounters and challenges the students to create their own interactive encounters. The primary focus is on learning through emulating the inner workings of each form of TV Talk – social norms and practices that organize participation, and that distinguish various forms of broadcast talk from one another and from ordinary conversation.


Good communication and good pronunciation go hand in hand. In this program, we focus specifically on pronunciation for the freshmen students, who come into the university at many different levels of English and with several different pronunciation problems. However, focusing ONLY on pronunciation can often have a negative effect as students become more self-conscious and hesitate to use the language. In order to avoid this, we give the students fun scenarios to challenge them to use the language and build their confidence. We first challenge them to do their best work, then break down the recordings technically, looking at pronunciation and intonation as well as grammar to highlight the good and encourage better communication and pronunciation.


Each month the students can focus on one aspect or form of TV Talk, and after the initial discussion where we study real life examples, the students in groups of 10 produce their own 5-7 minutes show for that form. After two weeks when all the shows are completed the students will meet, review and discuss what worked and what didn’t and choose the best show to be published on the website. The next TV Talk form is then introduced for the next month.
