The lesson time is 45 minutes and for about 15 minutes we use the popular series ‘Let’s Go’ and ‘We Can’ which include a workbook so children can get used to writing in English.
About 10 minutes may be spent singing or chanting – the school has many hundreds of songs with written words. Children can practice reading, pronunciation, intonation, grammar and comprehension all at the same time so it is an extremely efficient way for children to start learning English.
The rest of the lesson is spent talking with the teacher using games or various materials.
You can have a private lesson, a semi-private lesson (2 to 3 per class) or a group lesson of up to 4 students.
For those interested in passing school tests, some Japanese teachers have grammar classes which you are welcome to join.
