The plan was designed for the second-graders at Kaohsiung Industrial High School with a proficiency level roughly ranging from low-intermediate to intermediate.
Two activities were designed for each language skill, i.e., listening, speaking, reading and writing, with eight target activities in total covered in the semester. These target activities were considered communicative ones since they were all more learner-centered activities with a focus on fluency and communicative competence development and practiced in either a pair or group work manner. Students’ grammatical errors were seldom corrected as long as their meanings were able to convey. Besides, the learning materials were mostly authentic materials from the Internet or from the realia, brought back from Australia. The teaching schedule along with the teaching focus/activities for each session is listed in the table below:
