My fellow members and I went to K junior high school in Tochigi prefecture and took part in an English teaching training for teachers.
Firstly, we observed an English class and saw it from three points of view. Those were elaborations on a language activities to achieve an aim, elaborations to aware of scenes and work of a language and teacher’s encouragements to deepen their learning.
Secondly, teachers present (+ Tanabe semiar students) were divided into two groups and made some comments on the class. What impressed me most was all teachers not only pointed something out but also suggested their advice and solutions on the basis of their experiences.
Finally, I learned that it was really difficult to teach English. I want to learn the way more.I had a wonderful time and appreciated to Dr. UG and all of them for giving us such as a great opportunity. (Otoyo)
