The course aims to not only advance students’ general English proficiency but, more importantly, to broaden students’ horizon of not only viewing their own country but also comprehending the international world. To achieve the goal, students of this course will be assigned to read news articles from publishers of global prestige such as The Economist, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Strait Times, to name just a few. With the reading practices and training as has illustrated, students are expected to master English as well as enhance a knowledge of the global conditions that intellectuals ought to possess. The course will be conducted mainly in English yet interwoven with Chinese translation for text explanation.
