The students are expected to read the assignments before class.
For future engineers, it will become more and more important to express your own ideas and opinions in English. To improve your ability to use English, please try to find interesting ways to use it: reading English newspapers and magazines, writing a diary in English, exchanging English emails with an English speaking student from an English speaking country, seeing movies without Japanese subtitles, etc.
