Conversation with Pronunciation
【学習方法】 This is an INTERNATIONAL-style ‘Western-style’) class: students will learn by participating FULLY; by trying NEW STYLES of learning; and by bringing and showing MOTIVATION. Pronunciation ‘drills’ will be done/ practised; song-listening exercises will help to improve pronunciation, listening, and vocabulary; and pair-practice will assist MOTIVATED, outgoing (‘Gai-ko-teki’) students to explore conversation topics. Some INTERNATIONAL VIDEOS and SONGS may also be included. Explanations by the teacher are given in English(and a little Japanese, if needed).
【学習形態】 Pronunciation drills will provide each student a chance to listen to and to imitate NORTH AMERICAN English pronunciation. Conversation topics will be modeled (by the teacher); and then pair-practiced by ENERGETIC students. Student opinions are invited, in conversing about current topics, song themes, movies, and other cross-cultural issues.
【受講者に期待する達成レベル】 If students learn to LISTEN to and accurately COPY English sounds, they can improve their English pronunciation. Much depends on YOUR (student) motivation, participation, and positive energy. Please divest yourselves of ‘Wasei Eigo’; cultivate a positive sense of HUMOR; and ‘challenge’ real, modern English! ‘Go for it!’(Gambatte!)
