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。

カナダ出身のリック・ロマンコ教授(全学教育センター兼任)ご自身による授業紹介とインタビューをお伝えします!(日本語版はこちらから

My name is Rick Romanko and I'm from Toronto, Canada. I have been teaching English at Wayo Women's University for almost 15 years! Wayo is a great place to make new friends, learn new things, and improve your foreign language skills (English as well as other foreign languages).

■ロマンコ先生が担当する授業について
In all of my classes at Wayo, students work in pairs and small groups to share their ideas, do tasks, and improve their fluency in English (speaking, listening, reading, and writing).

■論文作成ゼミ、卒業論文ゼミについて
Let me tell you a little about my seminar classes (Romanko Zemi). In my third-year seminar course students choose a topic they are interested in, create an online survey about that topic, collect and analyse their survey data, write a short report in English about the results of their survey, and finally, make a presentation in English about their survey project. In my fourth-year seminar course, students choose a topic they are interested in, research that topic, and write their graduation thesis about that topic in English. Students also get to make a presentation in English about their graduation thesis at a special event at Wayo. In these seminar classes students have the opportunity to improve their English skills as well as life skills that will help them in their future jobs.

■英語を上達させるにはどうすればいいですか?
There is no 'best way' to learn English. Every learner is different and has to find the method (or methods) that works best for them. However, there are two important things you can do to become more successful in your English studies. First, to improve your vocabulary, you should focus on studying the high-frequency (most common and important) 1,000 or 2,000 words of English until you know them all. By learning these words, you will have a better chance at understanding many English texts and or conversations. There are many lists of these words available and your English teachers at Wayo can introduce you to these words. Second, you should regularly try to use the English that you already know/have experience with. Doing things like having conversations in English about topics you are familiar with and reading or listening to books, stories, and songs in English that only use vocabulary you are already familiar with. This will help you develop your fluency in English and get better at using English smoothly and confidently in real-time situations.

■過去に訪れて大好きな国はどこですか?
I love to travel and have visited over 50 countries around the world. I love visiting new places, meeting new people, learning about different cultures and trying new foods. Some of my favourite countries around the world are Australia, Austria, England, Greece, Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam, and of course Japan. One of the best things about all of these countries is their many delicious foods and drinks.

■ロマンコ先生の趣味はなんですか?
In my free time I like to cook and go for long walks with my dog, Roofy. He is an Australian Labradoodle and loves to play frisbee with me. We go for 2 to 3 walks a day. For cooking, I like to challenge myself by looking in my refrigerator and trying to create a delicious meal just from the food/ingredients that is there.
