General Conversation Course
We will focus on daily general conversation. The objective is for students to output as much English as possible and feel comfortable to use English. It’s also the perfect environment for intermediate students to maintain their English. If you are a host family or plan to become one, we can also prepare you for that!
For group and semi-private lessons, we will use the Passport (2nd Edition) series from Oxford University Press. From the Oxford University Press website, “Written exclusively for Japanese students, the second edition offers a combination of new and familiar characters, locations and storylines while retaining the ease of use, fun, and effectiveness that are the hallmark of the Passport series.”
Study Abroad / Working Holiday Course
If you are planning to study abroad or do a working holiday, this course will prepare you with the language and life skills that will help you settle into your new home away from home overseas. Learn about stereotypes and how to change your perspective of the world. Learn and practice slang, words that you won’t find in a textbook. Learn everything first-hand from a native English speaker. We can even help with visa applications if you need one.
For group and semi-private lessons, we will use the textbook Passport to New Places from Oxford University Press. From the Oxford University Press website, “The new addition to the best-selling Passport series that teaches survival English in a travel context to Japanese low-level learners.”
For students who wish to improve their English for their jobs, we have a program just for that! Whether it’s using English in Japan or traveling overseas for work, we can help you feel more confident listening and speaking in English. If you’re applying for a job overseas, we can even help you create a resume and prepare for an interview.
For group and semi-private lessons, we will use the textbook Passport to Work from Oxford University Press. From the Oxford University Press website, “Passport to Work is a functional, speaking and listening course written especially for Japanese learners who need to use English in the workplace.”
In this course you will learn how to effectively use your iPhone and iPad. These smart devices are meant to make our lives easier, however learning how to efficiently use them might not be so easy. Learn enhanced camera techniques to take photos like a professional. Find out how to never run out of storage space. Learn about apps that you wish you knew about before. Discover shortcuts and features that you never even knew existed!
There is no textbook for this course. Students are expected to own and bring their own iPhone and/or iPad. Unfortunately we do not cover Android devices in this course.
