Responsibilities and Requirements:
We need teachers who can teach one or some of the following courses (esp. Oral English)
Oral English (for International College Students)
Oral English is the course for all students in International College, with its aim to improve the students’ speaking skills including vocabulary, expressions, phrases, sentence structures, and cross cultural communication skills . This course is part of the preparation package for the International College students, who are high school graduates and will go on to study at our partner universities in some English-speaking countries after two years' study at GDUFS. It is expected to help students adjust to their living and learning environments, and facilitate their communications in academic studies. Some cultural background information should be included in the teaching.
Oral English ( for Foreign Language Training Center Students)
The requirements are similar to the above except that the students are teachers who are selected by the Ministry of Education of China and are to go abroad as visiting scholars. They are more interested in knowledge about the host country’s culture and society, and more practical skills.
Language learning should be more than the manipulation of pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. In this course we will examine not only a list of facts of Britain, but also have an intimate view of what life is really like in the target culture.

A brief survey of American geography, the formation of the union, US population trends, the economy, the concept of class and traditional American values.
