Junior High School Courses
The Ministry of Education revealed their English education revolutionary plan which corresponds to globalism. In the plan the goal for JHS (Junior High School) English classes is to teach the classes all in English. The old system where you can get good scores simply by memorizing words and grammar is now changing.
Let’s prepare for the new generation study program by increasing listening skills for understanding lessons and speaking skills for speeches in class!
1 In the event where the native teacher cannot teach (e.g. due to sickness), a bilingual Japanese teacher will substitute for the lesson.
2 Activities are subject to change.
3 Terms and conditions apply.
Teaching Materials and Goals
In Elementary School, the English curriculum only focuses on speaking and listening using simple English, so most students experience reading and writing English, as well as learning English grammar, for the first time in JHS. This can be overwhelming for students, where English often becomes a subject disliked by many.
To help JHS students, we have 2 courses available. We have a Conversation Course, led by Canadian teacher Nam, which will focus on speaking and listening using language acquired from Everybody Up. In addition, we will also use Oxford Phonics World to help teach phonics skills for reading, writing and pronunciation skills. We also have a Grammar Course, led by Japanese teacher Kumiko, which will focus on reading and writing using a grammar workbook, Work English, alongside with the current JHS textbook used in public schools.
Our goal is to help to build confidence in all 4 skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) for students with what they are learning in school in order for them to appreciate and enjoy using English!
