1Using English frequently helps you to speak it more naturally.
On average, students learn in English for about 50% of the day, which is key to brushing up the communication skills needed to open doors to new and exciting opportunities. At Eisugakkan, even if you are not confident about your English ability at first, you will be able to learn English naturally because we have established a style of teaching that adapts to each student’s language level.
Our Junior High School is organized in two classes.
Immersion Class A
This class is for returnees and students who have studied English from early elementary school.
Immersion Class B
This class is for students who want to learn and master English from junior high school.
2Developing the Learning Skills
When studying, it is important to recognize one’s own learning gaps. It is also important to identify the problems, figure out how to solve them, find information using a variety of sources and use the appropriate information gathered to create solutions. Acquiring the skills necessary for learning helps students learn independently, interactively, collaboratively and deeply.
Learning skills to learn "how to study"
Students will learn and practice the five ways to learn effectively in class and at home: researching, communicating, self-managing, thinking and collaborating.
3Interacting with native teachers from around the world
Teachers from all over the world, including Japan, teach not only the content of textbooks, but also help students learn independently and acquire the necessary skills to learn. We place importance on accepting and respecting the diversity of cultures and lifestyles.
Two homeroom teachers, one Japanese and one Native English speaker
Students are always with two homeroom teachers from their homeroom time to parent-teacher conferences. They spend their school life with foreign teachers even outside of the classroom.
Advantages of the two homeroom teacher system
・Can share both Japanese and foreign cultures.
・Can teach multiple aspects of study and school life.
