This is a “Western” style class for truly MOTIVATED people who wish to better understand and better ‘DO’ English conversation, grammar, listening, vocabulary, and reading, re: INTERNATIONAL News. Reading, grammar, and writing practice will come from printed/Online News articles; and from homework regarding those articles. In addition, listening abilities can be honed by listening to audio News, and video News-listening exercises. Reading/vocabulary comprehension can be improved via reading English News articles. Please sit at the FRONT; sit beside two other GENKI students; use ‘Western’ manners (e.g. cover your mouth when you cough, sneeze, or yawn); please try hard to learn and SHOW International ‘EQ’ [Emotional Intelligence]; make lots of eye contact; show International “open” Body Language (please avoid 'crossed arms' and avoid a 'poker face'); SMILE; talk together a LOT, in a friendly way; please EXPLAIN your answers; it is advisable to use PENS, (instead of pencils); please develop a sense of HUMOR; guess (quickly) if you don’t know an answer; and please always keep a large namecard on your desk.
News-Reading exercises (grammar; reading) may be mixed with Audio and/or Video News-listening (to improve listening skills) and with conversation (to keep the mood INTERNATIONAL and OPEN-MINDED, and to practice grammar and speaking), and with other items, to keep the class STIMULATING and cross-cultural.
Explanations by the teacher are given in English (and in a little Japanese, if needed).
Students are requested to participate 429%; to QUICKLY answer questions and to EXPLAIN their answers; to be open-minded about new and different learning styles; to show and use HUMOR; and to understand that ‘Wasei Eigo’ is NOT appropriate English. Pair conversation may assist all of us to ‘ENERGIZE,’ and to USE the English that we learn.
If students are MOTIVATED; come to every class; do all of the homework; and also do DAILY News-listening & News-reading on their own, they can improve their International, English News-comprehension abilities. Participation and positive energy are CRUCIAL to realizing your goals. 'GO FOR IT!’(Gambatte!)
