Using up-to-date news videos from AFP, this comprehensive video-based course covers a wide range of fields such as economics, culture, and education. Addressing global social issues, the topics take in autonomous ships, apps to tackle food waste, extreme sports, and ecotourism. Videos will boost listening skills while related English texts of around 280 words will help develop reading skills. Each chapter is designed to stimulate discussion centered around problem-solving, making it easier for students to switch from being observers to participants in the teaching process. Teacher’s materials include two sets of Review Tests.
