morning and thank you very much for your time to stop by 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 the 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.
To maximize the efficiency of lessons, at English Plus, we mainly provide 90-min group lessons, which consist of maximum 4 students in a class.
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.
In addition to our school system, there are various features of our lessons, and today I'd like to write one of them.
One of our lesson features is "Practical & Original curriculum and lesson."
All of our group lessons are based on our original curriculum, which means our students don't use or follow specific textbooks.
This means our students never do "repeat after me" or "memorize dialogues in a textbook" during our lessons.
Instead, in our conversation lessons, our students try to make dialogues by themselves.
Student A: Ask B a question (e.g. What did you do last weekend?)
Student B: Answer A's question (e.g. I went shopping.)
Student A: Listen to B's answer and make a comment & ask another question related to the answer (e.g. I see. Where did you go shopping?)
Student B: Answer A's question and ask A a question (e.g. I went to Odaiba. How about yourself? What did you do last weekend?)
Student A&B's conversation continues.
This is just an example and in our lessons, we encourage our students to speak a lot during lessons.
In order for them to speak a lot and enjoy communication, we try to support our students to acquire basic English skills through the lessons and self-study support.
Basic English skills at English Plus mean they can make sentences freely and accurately.
To master basic English skills and communication skills, our lessons are carried out on our practical original curriculum.
Our original curriculum contains our instructors' teaching experience and some important points that we've learned through TESL curriculum.
The curriculum is separated by each level, from beginner to high intermediate, and our students can effectively learn important tips for acquiring basic English and communication skills.
In addition, this curriculum includes not only our instructors' teaching experience but also our students' and staff members' learning experience, so it is more practical.
After every lesson is done, our teachers check the lesson to see if the lesson was easy for our students to understand or if there is something we should change about it.
For better lessons, we update and improve our lessons every day.
We are going to improve how to teach English from now on too.
