Teaching Method

4,Teaching Method


An obvious yet fundamental precept of our teaching method is that students must be willing to make an effort to learn. In the early stages, they should try to put themselves in the hands of the teacher and cooperate in the rapid-fire drills and conversation practices, even if they cannot immediately perceive the direction in which they are being taken. Later on, when they have grasped what is going on, students should begin to play a more active role in the classroom situation.
As teachers, we know it is essential to make sure our students get as much conversation practice−in Japanese only−as possible within the limited time available.
We have developed techniques that force our students to listen carefully as well as to give oral responses.
To avoid mere "parroting," we encourage our students to make up questions themselves. It is vital that we get a clear idea of each student's ability, confidence and level of acquaintance with the language as soon as possible.
Too much too soon prevents the laying down of a sound foundation. Too little too slowly creates bored students and steadily saps their confidence in their ability to progress.

Our teachers have been trained to tailor their teaching styles to the individual student's requirements.
People who like to talk, who do not mind repetition, who do not worry about making mistakes and who have flexible minds are easier to handle. But we know from experience that there are people who are shy,
who do not like repetition, who do worry about making mistakes, who tend to try and translate each sentence into their own languages and who are more interested in the intellectual and cultural fields.
Whichever category you fall into, we can adapt our method to suit you. Our goal is to develop your abilities as fully as possible and raise your level in Japanese as far as you are willing to go.
