morning and I appreciate your visit to English Plus blog!
English Plus is a small school located in Tamachi, Tokyo.
We're providing fun, student-centered, practical English lessons.
Today, I'd like to write about one of the features of English Plus' lesson.
English Plus is a small, friendly, fun, and also has a family atmosphere English school; thus, we can listen to our students' comments directly and support them by providing necessary service in order to help them improve their English skills.
That's a reason why when we know and realize their weakness, we can suggest some effective self-training methods for each of them.
We usually tell our students that "taking lessons regularly" is important, and also "doing self-study constantly" is also necessary to improve English skills.
After the lessons, we give our students some homework and most of them try and submit it the next time they take lessons.
It's because we have decided our school motto "Every day English" and we encourage our students to do some English study in their free time.
We, English Plus, believe "taking lessons regularly" and "doing self-study constantly" are really important to improve English skills, and to maximize the lesson efficiency, our class size is max 4 students in a class.
This "small class size" is one of our lesson features.
As you probably know, from the communication point of view for most people, English is not an academic subject but a communication tool.
Considering English as a communication tool, the most important tip is how we use English after learning it.
In other words, practicing English a lot with others helps us improve our English skills.
Of course, one-to-one teaching helps us improve our English skills, but a lot more students in a class can help us improve our English skills more since there are a lot more conversation topics in a class, a wide variety of expressions and vocabulary we can learn, and we can hear other people's opinions too.
However, if there are too many students in a class, it's difficult to speak out or ask questions during a lesson.
Also, there isn't much time to speak English in a class or teachers can't focus on each student's speech when they speak at the same time.
Therefore, at English Plus, our class room size is small - max 4 students in a class.
This small class room size can help our students to communicate more, and our teachers can help our students when necessary.
We feel that this class room size is very effective for our students to improve their English skills.
Since I've personally experienced teaching English at a vocational school, whose class room size was big - 30 students in a class, and at a famous English conversation school, whose class room sizes vary and I taught one-to-one too, 4 students in a class is great!
Actually, there are some other features of our lessons and self-study support, so I'd like to introduce one by one in this blog in the near future.
We haven't been satisfied with our current teaching style yet, and we're looking for better ways to teach English from now on too.
