Muna Kids English Circle
We held our fifth Muna Kids English Circle for Winter 2019 on February 17th. We played “Go Fish” in both the Elementary and Kindergarten classes. The Elementary class also learned a magic trick and the Kindergarten class played a second game to further practice their language.
This is a classic card game that we played in our very first Muna Kids English Circle. At that time we played a simplified version of the game, but this time we played the full version of it. It’s an excellent game that uses repetitive language and strategic listening and memorization skills. We were surprised to see how some of the kids were able to apply their strategic thinking to play the game!
Magic: Pick a Card [Elementary Class]
It’s been a while since we last taught the kids how to do a magic trick. We taught the elementary class the classic “Pick a card” trick. This magic trick lays the basic foundation for many other magic tricks. The kids were able to practice the magic trick in pairs and later perform it to their parents!
Secret Partner [Kindergarten Class]
To get the kindergarten class up and moving while still using the same language from “Go Fish”, we played a game where the kids had to interview each other to find their secret partner. The kids had an opportunity to speak to many other kids and use the practical language in order to find their secret partner.
Parent Discussion Time [Elementary Class]
In the elementary class, we talked about Eiken and the University entrance system. From 2020 other English exam scores will be used for the University entrance exam, with Eiken being one of the other official exams. So now many parents might be interested in taking Eiken. For now only the score or licence students get on the same year they take the University exam can be used for the University entrance exam. It is a good motivational tool for kids to study English but please remember that the score kids get in their early ages cannot be used for the University entrance exam. Also, just like other official exams, checking the 4 skills (writing, speaking, listening, and reading) is mandatory. For now for the Eiken test, only people who pass the first stage can take the speaking test (get a speaking score), so there will be a high chance that a CBT style which tests people’s 4 skills in one day will be more common. Japanese English education is now changing a lot, and Muna wants to share this information a lot.
The next Muna Kids English Circle will be held on Sunday, March 3rd at Tsukiminosato.
