On 30th January, we had an meeting via Zoom.

The presenter was Naomi.

She shared what she experienced and worked on as a high school teacher.
The topic was "Recent Trends of English Test of University Entrance Examinations".

She told us that the standardized test is becoming more difficult than before. She also explained features or tendencies of universities' entrance test.

Overall, according to her presentation, it seems that students are required to cover wider vocabulary and also need to think deeply and quickly for a standardized test and some universities' entrance test.

One of her recommendation for teachers and parents is to encourage children to read more books. Any type of books would be great to enhance their language capability as well as their curiosity.

Thank you Naomi, for your interesting topic.

Reading will definitely widen our mind, and it can be an experience just like a journey to a different world. I hope that reading is for enjoyment, but I agree that it is also good for learning.

Yoko and Mio demonstrated a lesson for young children via Zoom.

As for the online lesson, they were not trying to do the same things as in-person lessons. Instead, they were trying to do something interesting and unique to the online lesson.

For example, if you hide something outside the screen frame then show it, you can entertain young children like a puppet show or magic.

We understood the idea through their demonstration.

They also performed a trick such as pretending throw-and-catch, but actually they were in different places.

Moreover, they presented a short movie created with TikTok, in which Mio and her daughters were dancing to the joyful music. We were entertained a lot. Thank you very much for a great presentation!

      On  December 4th, the representatives of ESBAT went to see the Mayer of Mito City to ask for the new education system proposing "Immersion School in Mito."

      Immersion education is a system in which all academic subjects are taught in a target language. In this case, the language will be English. Then "Why in Mito?" Mito is the capital city of Ibaraki, and it has a long history as a special district for promotion of English Education at their public schools.

      We do not only propose a possibility of building an immersion school, but also we would like them to know the possibility of our children. The biggest mistake in Japanese English Education we think is "not listening to children's voice." So we propose;

・   a school where the students who really want to study English can learn 

・ IB (International Baccalaureate) Programmes, not only for a qualification but also for providing personal development of knowledgeable and  inquiring students  
・ Raising students as multilingual leaders who are more culturally aware  (globally and locally) and are able to engage with people in an rapidly changing  globalized world. 

・ a core institution with effective educators who can support professional development of English native teachers in Ibaraki   

     
 "I think about ninety percent of the problem in teaching, or maybe ninety-eight 
       percent, is just to help the students get interested."    by   Noam Chomsky

This was the Last Meeting for 2020.

Presenter: Sally
Title: "SALLY'S  BH(British Hills) Study Tour"

      SALLY'S ELA Students went on a study tour to British Hills on August 30th, 2020.This year, the whole world has been suffering from COVID-19. SALLY'S students also had to give up the study tour to BH in March as the state of emergency was just announced the day before. Then, we replanned the study tour in August with careful consideration.

      Our students had a great exprience and learned a lot. Moreover I was proud of our students who tried very hard to speak only in English and their positive attitude toward the study tour at BH.  We had course dinner for lunch at the dining hall like Harry Potter!

   Finally, we would like to say "we always pray for Fukushima as your neighbor" and we will go to BH in Fukushima again next year without COVID-19!!

We had the 2nd Zoom meeting on 27th September. 

Iijima-sensei was a main presenter, and she talked about the latest English lesson materials used at elementary schools in the area where she works.

She showed us the textbooks and some videos, and told us how effective they are to motivate children.

COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way of teaching. For example, Iijima-sensei used a mouth shield, a face shield, and a partition, which are transparent. It was necessary to show a teacher's lips movement to the students so that they could learn how to pronounce, and to prevent them from infection at the same time.

ESBAT members were very interested in her presentation and the materials.

Sally-sensei informed us about some updates on "NICE" English Contest.

NICE stands for "
NAKA, I Can Enjoy!"

I hope children will enjoy learning English through the various activities of NICE!

We were able to have  an online meeting for the first time using Zoom on 5th July, thanks to Prof. Nagasawa's kind advice.

The topic was about "Zoom English Lessons for Children".
Yoko sensei and Sally sensei showed us the Zoom lessons  which were made for their students. Michelle joined in both and she was very helpful to create materials and team teach. Good to have a young member! Yoko sensei and Sally sensei are brave to try new things. I was really impressed!   

The picture below: ESBAT members looking at Sally sensei's Zoom lesson. We had a guest, Yuki. Thank you for joining, Yuki!
