主題一:

隨著中國和南韓的商業起飛, 台灣企業的過去成功經驗模式已經不再適用了。再加上全球經濟的劇烈變化和台灣國內人口結構的改變也促使台灣業界隨之修正其圖存及繁榮的策略。

台灣產業的將來走向會是如何呢?政府的政策要如果協助民間業界的發展呢?台灣的市場會有將來嗎?我會在台灣找到一個好工作嗎?如果我回台灣,我的工作會有很好的發展嗎?

在美國及台灣工作最主要的差別是什麼? 如何準備及發展自己的職業目標

With the strong competition from South Korea and China, the past successful business model will no longer be able to repeat itself for Taiwan businesses.  In addition, the change in global economic dynamic as well as the change in domestic demographics forced Taiwan business to alter their strategy to survive and thrive. 

Where is Taiwan business going to?  How does the government come into play?  Is the market growing?  Can I find a job there?  Can I grow a career there?

What are the major differences between working in US and Taiwan? How can I plan my career to get where I want to be?

 

主題二

主講人將引介語音學和音韻學的概念,並教您透過由下而上以及由上而下的訓練改進英語發音方式。由下而上的訓練不僅著重在發音的位置和方式,更強調認識並掌握語音的規律變化,如氣音、閃音、斷音、母音鼻化、母音縮減。由上而下的訓練重點則在於如何放置重音,如何連結音節,以及如何控制音調。

By introducing some basic concepts in phonetics and phonology, the speaker will show you some training techniques to improve English pronunciation.  Pronunciation training can be bottom-up and top-down.  The bottom-up training not only emphasizes the place and manner of articulation,  but also pays attention to common phonological changes, including aspiration, flapping, glottalization, vowel nasalization, and vowel reduction .  The top-down training, on the other hand, is comprised of three components, stress, linking, and pitch.
