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.
The Prep Course is designed to act as a bridge from Japanese schools to international schools. All of our classes are taught in English and in the same style as classes in an international school 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 student’s feelings of anxiety and nervousness to that of prepared and excitement.
Our schedule consists of communication classes that 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 with an emphasis on the language of numbers, and reading classes focusing 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. After a busy week of studies, the last class on Friday is a yoga class which gives the students a chance to relax and reset their minds.
If you or your child is considering studying abroad, this course is the best way to prepare. I am confident that through the eight weeks together students are ready to take on the challenge of studying abroad. Each year, I witness the growth in English and confidence as students participate in this unique course.
My name is Diana and I am the yoga teacher for this course. I believe that a healthy body makes a healthy mind and vice versa.
I'm very happy to teach yoga poses that challenge as well as relax your mind and body.
My name is Diego Medrano and I teach reading and history at Sundai Global Club. I'm from California and have lived in Japan for two years. I am also a teacher at Keio Senior High School and Shinagawa Joshi Gakuen.
Our classes in this course are challenging and fun, preparing students with the knowledge and understanding necessary for surviving and thriving in the English-speaking world.
Students are encouraged to develop many skills in the Sundai Global classroom and I'm happy to help them along their journey.
