【学習方法】 Cross-cultural, INTERNATIONAL topics will be discussed and practiced, via newspaper articles; cultural festivals and happenings; song-listening exercises; international VIDEOS; ‘conversation’ situations; and other timely topics. Explanations by the teacher are given in English (and a little Japanese, if needed).
【学習形態】 Students in a Western-style class should PARTICIPATE 436%, and actively share their opinions--even if the grammar isn’t yet perfect. In addition, students should endeavor to become more OUTGOING (‘Gai-ko-teki’), and to show a sense of HUMOR, if they hope to have FUN, interesting conversations in English with INTERNATIONAL people. Please forget ‘Wasei Eigo’; and ‘challenge’ real, modern English. Go for it!
【受講者に期待する達成レベル】 If students bring positive motivation and open minds, they can learn to more smoothly speak in (and reply in) FAST, natural English. Student improvement depends a LOT on how motivated, participatory, and open-minded each student can become.
