English 英語 7, First Semester 上, "Syllabus" 課程計畫


The syllabus/outline below was taken from the Dino On the Go! textbook published by Han Lin 翰林出版.  Other textbook series will vary, but given the government-mandated curriculum they won't vary much.

Kids in Taiwanese elementary schools have English class at least twice a week.  Each unit would be completed in about a month's time, adding up to the four months that comprise a semester.

The English textbooks start at #1 in grade three, and the numbers advance each semester.  This means that book #2 is for the second semester of grade three, book #3 is for the first semester of grade four, etc.  The numbers for other subject textbooks (i.e. "Social Studies 社會 3上") reflect the actual grade level, and use a 上 or 下 to indicate the semester.

*This "Words of Wisdom" part is new.  In previous textbooks this section was "Daily Talk."  To the best of my knowledge, I have never once used any of these phrases in my daily life.

**The "spring couplets" or 春聯 are the red papers Chinese people hang on/next to their doorways during Chinese New Year.  They are the two halves of a propitious poem.  I usually refer to them simply as "the red papers that people hang next to their door on Chinese New Year," or "door banners."  Like a lot of things related to traditional holidays, the English vocabulary used is somewhat clumsy.
