ESL English Trivia

Spring Session I

『英文交流,機智問答』運用了英文交流,課堂模式和互動式機智問答遊戲的方式,專門設計給英語為非母語人士。 (Trivia) 機智問答遊戲,通常對非母語人士來說非常困難,因為它需要深入地了解當地文化。


Social Media is an English language exchange, class, and interactive trivia game designed for non-native English speakers. English trivia is usually very difficult for non-native speakers because it relies heavily on obscure cultural references. Social Media is different.

Each week we cover one topic in great detail. The trivia game is built into the topic powerpoint. If the topic is music, we won’t answer trivia questions like “Who wrote the song ‘Turn the Page’?”. This is too specific. Instead, we use English to make an educated guess about numbers, in a multiple choice style question. “How many songs are in the average rock album?” or “How many violins are in the average orchestra?” We can use what we learn to guess these answers correctly. Previous knowledge about the topic is not necessary. We only ask that you have intermediate English speaking and listening ability.
