2020年度、春から新設された国際学部 英語コミュニケーション学科では、国際社会で通用するコミュニケーション力と実践的な英語力を学生たちが習得することをめざしています。そのため、英語を母国語とするネイティヴスピーカー教員の授業を豊富に用意し、学生たちが生きた英語を学べるカリキュラムを展開しています。

2年次の選択科目「パブリック・スピーキング」はオーストラリア出身のベンジャミン・オーラ准教授の授業。オーラ先生ご自身による授業紹介とインタビューを英語でお伝えします!(日本語版はこちらから

■「パブリック・スピーキング」について
In this class, students learn how to make presentations in English about topics such as: introducing their favorite place, explaining how to do something, and talking about a memorable experience. In the first part of the course, we practice special English phrases related to presentations and learn about the structure of a presentation. After that, there are activities that focus on using your voice effectively, gestures, and body posture. Finally, students learn how to make slides and then do their presentations in front of their classmates.

■オーラ先生が考える英語上達法!
I think the best way to learn English is to make friends with someone who can speak English and talk to that person as much as you can. Of course, it is not easy to make friends with English speakers so writing a diary every day in English and watching TV shows in English are also good. Many people watch foreign TV shows and mainly focus on reading the subtitles, but if you really try hard to listen to the conversations and look up words you don't know, you can improve your English a lot.

■和洋女子大学の学生の特長、良いところ
I think Wayo women's university is a fantastic place to study because the atmosphere in the classes is very relaxing and friendly. There is a wonderful sense of balance and respect in the interaction between the students, teachers, and staff. I am always amazed when I see how much the students in my classes help each other and also inspire each other to learn more.

■過去に訪れて大好きな国はどこですか?
The best country I have ever been to is Sweden. I love the nature, the people, and Swedish design. I especially like Swedish furniture, ceramics, and glass from the 1960's so when I go to Sweden I buy many antique plates and cups. The people in Sweden are incredibly friendly and everyone speaks excellent English. I think if you go there, it will make you believe that even if English is not your native language, you can become a fluent English speaker if you try hard.

■日本の好きなところを教えてください
I love many things about Japan so it is very difficult to choose the things that I like best. I think that Japanese precision, attention to detail, and efficiency are the things that I love most about living here. For example, pizza is not a Japanese food but there have been several Japanese world champion pizza makers and many food experts say that Japanese people make the best pizza in the world now. I think this is because Japanese people have an incredible ability to focus on something, and use both intelligence and effort to produce things and provide services that people in other countries cannot.
