|2014 ICLP Summer Program for Flagship Students||2014 NTU-ICLP領航項目學校聯合暑期專班簡章 |
| The program is rigorous, if students wish to travel or go sightseeing, they should plan to do it either before or after the program.|
For the last two years, Flagship students have received eight weeks of intensive language instruction as part of ICLP’s summer program and have all found that their spoken, listening, reading and writing abilities have improved by at least one sub-level. This is because ICLP was founded for the purpose of training and developing the oral discursive ability of America’s academic elite. Since ICLP was founded in 1962, 75% of its alumni serve or have served in academia and the other 25% are distributed across legal, business, and government professions, serving as high level executives. It is clear to see that advanced language ability contributes to professional success.
ICLP is situated on the Main Campus of Taipei’s National Taiwan University. National Taiwan University is ranked the number one university in Asia and 87th on world university league tables, and is equipped with ample academic resources. By coming to ICLP to study you can not only greatly improve your Chinese oral expression, but also enjoy Taiwan’s abundant, diverse, and exquisite culture. We have specially formulated a 2014 Summer Course for Flagship students to provide an even better study and living environment. It is as follows:
領航項目學生這兩年來在 ICLP暑期班接受 8週密集訓練，證實了口語表達能力與聽讀寫能力至少各晉階一級，這是因為 ICLP是專為培訓美國學術菁英口語論述能力而設立的。自 1962年創立以來，75%校友在學術界服務， 25%分布於政、法、商界擔任高階主管，顯見，高語言成就等於高事業成就。
ICLP位於台北的國立台灣大學校總區，國立台灣大學校在亞洲大學排名第一，世界大學排名第 87名，有著豐厚的學術資源。到 ICLP來學習，不但口語論述能力精進，而且還能充分享受台灣豐富多元的精緻文化，真可謂一舉兩得。我們特別為領航項目學生規劃2014暑期專班，提供更好的學習與生活條件，如下：

Dos and Don’ts
- Students must be on time for class. If you are more than 15 minutes late you must obtain permission from both the chief instructor and your teacher prior to entering the classroom. Please enter the classroom promptly at the start of class and exit when the class is over. If you are late three times this will be considered as a one hour unauthorized absence.
- Please don’t do homework in the classroom.
- Do not eat during class.
- Please turn off cell phones before entering the classroom.
- Do not consult dictionaries during class.
- Please prepare thoroughly for each class. If for any reason you are unable to complete the set homework or class preparation, you should first ask the teacher if you may audit class that day. In any given semester you are not permitted to audit your class more than three times.
Every student is assigned one teacher as their advisor, if any problems arise during the semester please first go to your advisor and he or she will help you resolve them.
While attending classes at ICLP, if there are any problems with your schedule, class materials, or anything else related to study at ICLP, first discuss them with you advisor, then if there is still a problem please discuss it further with the chief instructor.
Upholding the ICLP’s Excellent Study Environment
Please do not talk loudly in the hallways during class time and respect the ICLP library’s quiet policy.
Some Ground Rules for 2014 Chinese Flagship Summer Program Students:
Attendance. This course consists of three sections. In the course of the semester, each student is allowed to be absent from six classroom meetings without incurring loss of point from the full percentage (10%) of the Attendance portion of the final grade. For each unexcused absence after the first six unexcused absences, one point will be subtracted from the full percentage (10%) of the Attendance portion of the final grade. Coming to class more than 5 minutes late three times will be considered as one absence.
Excused and Unexcused Absence. Absence from class with a physician’s note is excused absence and will not result in any deduction of point from the Attendance portion of the final grade. Notification of absence by email or telephone without a physician’s note will not be accepted as excused absence, and will count toward the six unexcused absences, and result in deduction of point from the Attendance portion after the first six unexcused absences are taken.
Permission for Absence. Since all teachers and the chief instructor will be responsible for determining the Attendance portion of the final grade, students should ask permission for absence from both teachers and the chief instructor. Failure to contact both the lecturer and the recitation leader may result in deduction from the Attendance portion of the final grade.
Grading Policy for Homework. Homework is assigned on a daily basis and should be turned in on time, not before or after the due date. Late homework handed in will not be accepted. Late homework as a result of medical reasons, only when accompanied by a physician’s note, will be accepted as homework finished on time.
Make-Up Tests and Quizzes. All students are expected to take tests and quizzes as they are scheduled. No make-up test or quiz is allowed unless there is a physician’s note to certify that the student cannot take the test or quiz at the scheduled time.
|Performance || 30%|
| Attendance|| 10%|
| Homework: written homework & essays|| 20%|
| Vocabulary Quizzes:|| 20%|
| Mid-term (Oral):|| 10%|
| Mid-term (Written):|| 10%|
| Total:|| 100%|
Students are expected to do a great deal of work outside of class in order to maintain the rigorous pace of this curriculum. As a rule of thumb, students should expect to spend an additional 2 hours of personal study, including listening to, repeat audio files at least 5 times, for each hour of class time.
**Please note that before class preparation is critical in this course. The purpose of the class is not to introduce new materials, but rather to further the student’s understanding of the materials which the student has previewed, and then to put those new concepts into practice during the class.**
Three violations of the language pledge will result in 0 credits.
