My name is Jason. I am one of the teachers at Sundai's Prep Course. I am from America and have been in Japan since I graduated from university.
This course is designed to act as a bridge from Japanese schools to schools overseas. All of our classes are taught in English and in the same style as classes in a school overseas so that the transition can be smooth. In this course, we hope that students will develop study habits that make learning in a second language easier. It is our aim to change the students' feelings of anxiety and nervousness to those of preparedness and excitement.
Our schedule consists of a wide vanity of classes, For example, our communication classes focus on speaking, listening, writing, and group work. Our history classes focus on American history, writing classes focus on essay and presentation writing, math classes on the language of numbers, and reading classes on comprehension. In addition, we have Cinema English where movies provide an opportunity to improve listening comprehension, and Drama class where students use English to express creativity.
If you or your child is considering studying abroad, this course is the best way to prepare. I am confident that through the weeks together, students are ready to take on the challenge of studying abroad. Each year, I witness the growth in the English and confidence of students as they participate in this unique course.
