系主任的話:給大一新生

廣泛閱讀、終身學習

東吳英文系的新生們:

恭喜進入人生新階段,歡迎來到英文系大家庭。東吳大學英文系已有一甲子以上的歷史,擁有私立大學英文系最堅強的師資陣容,累積六十多年兼顧語言與文學的傳統,因應世界潮流而隨時調整的課程架構,再加上畢業校友的卓越成就,早已在學界與業界建立優良口碑。

進入大學殿堂你終於可以發展興趣、自主學習、規劃未來,進英文系首要目的當然是要學好英文,然後藉以學習更高深的知識並賴以謀生。學習語言聽說讀寫四技之外,更要涵括學習其文化、文學、社會習俗等內容,英文系的教師們當然傾囊以授,網路世代的學習更是「勤能補拙」,在此特別推薦美國南佛羅里達大學的"Lit2go" (literature to go)網站,你可以對照文本走到哪裡聽到哪裡。

未來的世界需要各式各樣的人才,往後這四年是你儲備能量的關鍵時段,university不再是戲稱的「由你玩四年」。希望你好好享受人生,廣泛閱讀、終身學習。

Dear freshmen:

Congratulations for entering a new stage of your life, and welcome to join us in the big family of English Department. In the history of over 60 years, we have established a solid reputation of cultivating students to compete in both academic fields and job markets, with our distinguished faculty and well-designed curriculum. This is evidenced by our alumni's achievements in various careers. 

Now in college you are free to develop your interest, study for yourself, and plan for your future. As English-majors, your first goal is certainly to learn English well, and then to use English as a medium to learn advanced knowledge or to earn a living. Learning language is both skill-based and content-based. To learn a language well entails learning its culture, literature, social customs, etc. The teachers in our Department are ready to teach you all they know, but you have more to learn by searching from Internet as long as you are diligent enough. Here I would like to recommend "Lit2go" (literature to go), a free on-line MP3 audio-book website created by University of South Florida that contains a huge collection of poems, stories, novels, drama, speeches, and other genres. 

The future world needs diverse workforces, and you need to equip yourselves, not fooling around, in the following four years. Wish you all enjoy your life through extensive reading and lifetime learning.
