  • The purpose of this study was to investigate ways to improve the effect of English-medium instruction (EMI) in Korean universities by comparing EMI lectures in two Korean universities with those in a Japanese university. Some universities run all courses in English while others do so for only part of them. This study comparatively investigated how EMI courses were run by these two groups of universities. For the purpose of this study, in-depth interviews were conducted with EMI instructors and students to find out what merits and problems that such EMI programs had in EFL environment of Korea and Japan. Another important goal was to correct problems and improve the Korean programs. The result showed that the most important issue of EMI programs in Korean universities was students' low English proficiency. It also demonstrated that English for Academic Purposes (EAP) was necessary to overcome this problem. It is a key to the success of MI programs. Hopefully, this study will stimulate continuous discussions on limitations and ways to improve EMI in Korean universities in various aspects.

  • This study intended to examine the English-Medium Instruction (EMI) policy in terms of developmental background and current situation in Chinese and Korean higher education institutions and to provide policy implications for each country. EMI policy in China and Korea shared common characteristics that the EMI courses in both countries were expanded through government leadership at the beginning in order to respond to internationalization since early 2000s. In terms of the differences, EMI policy in China aimed to improve educational quality and nurture bilingual talents while in Korea it primarily aimed to attract international students and internationalize universities. Although both governments took the lead in implementing the policy, universities in two nations responded differently. While the Chinese universities merely followed the government policy to expand EMI courses, its Korean counterparts had a more strong intention to increase EMI courses. Related policy implications were addressed.

  • This paper deals with a teaching method in EMI(English Medium Instructor) Education for engineering major subjects which is accomplished between non-native english speaking professors and students. Goals of EMI in non-english speaking countries will be both a improvement of communication ability and understanding of the major subjects. However, when students who have a low level-english ability participate in english class, it is necessary to analyze whether they can obtain above goals or not and to study on a teaching method for them. The english classes were aimed at students at the college of engineering who have 200-420 TOEIC average score. The research was proceeded by course evaluations to three direct EMI and surveys that were performed targeting all students participated in english class. The proposed research results may lead to development of EMI for students who have a low level- english ability and give them a better understanding and interest of major subjects.

  • A math class in Korean university was taught in English for one semester and the students' improvement was measured in math content and English proficiency. Pre and post test in 9 week intervals showed that math content loaming in the immersion class was superior to the non-immersed class. Especially, the immersion class showed remarkable improvement in difficult problems among math content test problems. The immersion class improved in math-related English, but not in general English. It is discussed that the particular English expressions for math are hardly separable from the math content knowledge in English because understanding and using those expressions correctly means the students' understanding of math concept in English and thus the math concept itself.

  • Many universities stress gradually the importance of english-medium class in order to improve the international competitiveness and the internationalization of the university. In this paper, we compare english-medium class with korean class using course evaluation score. Also we analyze the factors that affect the effectiveness of the course evaluation score of english-medium class. First, logistic regression analysis is used to examine the main effects of subjects and individual characteristics. Also, decision tree analysis is used to examine the interaction effects for subjects and individual characteristics. The results of this paper are as follows. Grade, department category, class size, GPA and screening method affect the effectiveness of english-medium class. The highest effectiveness group of english-medium class is that grade is freshmen and department category is humanity. Also the group of the second highest effectiveness group is that grade is freshmen and department category is nature and art and GPA is high.

  • The number of schools that implement English medium instruction (EMI) to improve students' English proficiency has been increasing. Despite the increasing popularity of EMI, little attention has been paid to evaluating the effectiveness of EMI and its impact on students and instructors. This study explores these issues, focused on the case of the College of Engineering at Y University. A survey questionnaire was administered to 19 engineering professors who offered EMI courses in the Fall of 2003. The survey results show that: 1) the professors perceive that students' low English proficiency is a large obstacle to successful implementation of EMI, and that pre-EMI language courses are needed to prepare students for EMI. 2)Though the professors expressed confidence in their English proficiency, they indicated that they felt quite a lot stressed at teaching EMI courses; hence, support of the school administration is needed to help faculty offering EMI courses. 3)To improve students' English proficiency, native-speaking language instructors are needed to provide feedback on students' written and spoken English.

  • This article explores how we pursue and operate the English medium instruction(EMI) in engineering colleges so as to educate global engineers. Engineering students in the 21st century society need to have fundamental work in languages, cultural differences, and strategies for working with diverse colleagues. EMI is not sufficient for preparing our engineering students to cope with the changed environments in our globalized society. Based on the case study, we emphasize that EMI needs to be located in the context of global engineering education which demands our understanding of different cultures and communication practices. We also suggest some programs how we develop our EMI circumstances.

  • 수업시간에 강의 듣고, 집에서 숙제를 하는 방식은 더 이상 학습자의 학습동기를 이끌지 못하고, 효과적인 수업이 이루어 질 수 없다. 수업시간에는 학생들의 적극적 상호작용이, 집에서는 인터넷 환경을 통한 핵심 강의식 내용을 미리 듣고 수업 활동에 임하는 플립러닝에 대한 영어과 수업의 도입이 필요하나 이에 대한 연구가 충분하지 않은 실정이다. 이에, 본 연구를 통해 영어수업(독해중심)에서의 플립러닝 활용 수업 모형을 개발하고, 이를 현장에 적용 후 수정 보완하여 대학 영어수업에서의 플립러닝 정착 및 발전을 도모한다.
