OSAKA Study Group Meeting November 17th (Sun) 2019 ■Completed■

Dear teachers,

It seems like autumn is coming slowly but surely.
We hope you are enjoying your classes with your students.

Our main topic for the next Osaka Study Group Meeting is the present progressive tense.
We receive a lot of request on this grammar point. So it seems like a lot of Japanese young learners have difficulties in handling this grammar point and maybe the teachers are finding it difficult to teach, too.

When we look at our classes, students know that they need the 'ing' but may drop the be verb, or are not certain in how to change the be verb according to the subject.
How should we help our students learn better?

With the MAT METHOD, we use the magical 6-second DRILLs so that the students can learn it quickly within the unit.

At our meeting, we would like to share some fun and efficient ideas on how to teach the progressive tense easily without stress. Since it is the season we look forward to Christmas, we will introduce some Learning Activities where Santa Claus and his wife, Mrs. Clause will join in.

So please come and join us and learn about the Model Action Talk (MAT) METHOD!!

Date: November 17th, (Sun) 13:00-16:30 (The door opens at 12:45)

OSAKA Study Group Meeting September 8th, 2019 ■Copleted■

Dear teachers,

The word "Summer vacation" reminds us of the exciting feeling before going on an adventure or during challenging new things. Now that it is just in the middle of the Summer Vacation, we hope you are actually enjoying this summer season with challenging and adventurous sparkling experiences.

One of the topics for our next Osaka Study Group Meeting is "How to teach Yes/ No questions".
The newspaper tells us about the great change that we will go through next year when English will be taught as a subject in elementary schools. And one thing that is attracting the teachers' interest is the speaking interaction activity called the "Small Talk". During this activity students will learn to say Yes or No to various questions from the very early stage, but is it OK just to tell them to say Yes or No.

We sometimes find some students suffering in expressing themselves in Junior high schools and Senior High Schools and they seem to have difficulties in understanding the grammar. Most students feel comfortable answering "Yes, I do." but feel difficult to answer "Yes, it is." We as teachers should be aware of these difficulties and should know how to reduce their stress.

So please come and join us if you are interested in this topic!!

Time: September 8th, 2019
13:00-16:30 (The door opens at 12:45)
