In this WESTERN-STYLE classroom, you will be required to participate FULLY;

(please avoid 'crossed arms'; and avoid a 'poker face'); develop a good sense of HUMOR ; use PENS (it is advisable not to use pencils); and learn to think in
INTERNATIONAL, cross-cultural ways. You're welcome to this class IF you’re
truly MOTIVATED to learn REAL English (not high school “Wasei Eigo”).
Please always show a LARGE namecard on your desk, so that the teacher and other students can learn your name; and please bring lots of POSITIVE energy and HUMOR to this class! ‘GO FOR IT!’ Gambatte!)
Cross-cultural, INTERNATIONAL topics will be discussed and practiced, via
newspaper articles; cultural festivals and happenings; song-listening exercises; international VIDEOS; ‘conversation’ situations; and other timely topics. Explanations by the teacher are given in English (and a little Japanese, if needed).
Students in a Western-style class should PARTICIPATE 436%, and actively share their opinions--even if the grammar isn’t yet perfect. In addition, students should endeavor to become more OUTGOING (‘Gai-ko-teki’), and to show a sense of HUMOR, if they hope to have FUN, interesting conversations with INTERNATIONAL people. Please forget ‘Wasei Eigo’; and ‘challenge’ real, modern English. Go for it!
If students bring positive motivation and open minds, they can learn to more
smoothly speak in (and reply in) FAST, natural English. Student improvement
depends a LOT on how motivated, participatory, and open-minded each student can become.

Most important: “Go for it” (Gambatte!) You’ll need ENERGY to GO FOR IT, so please bring your positive ENERGY to class. Please participate 360%; and please use your imagination and abilities as much as you can. Thinking, elaborating (explaining), HUMOR, guessing, discussing actively, and F=U=N are important in developing your INTERNATIONAL skills and LANGUAGE skills.
This is a ‘Western’ style class for truly MOTIVATED people who wish to better understand and better ‘DO’ English conversation, grammar, listening, vocabulary, and reading, in an INTERNATIONAL setting. English listening abilities will be honed by song-listening and video-listening exercises; and English speaking/grammar comprehension can be improved via reading & discussing English News articles.
Please sit at the FRONT; sit beside two other GENKI students; make lots of eye contact; it is advisable to use PEN (not pencil); SMILE; show ‘Western’-style manners (e.g. cover your mouth when you cough, sneeze, or yawn); talk together a LOT, in a friendly way; EXPLAIN your answers; use ‘Western’ BODY Language (i.e. please avoid 'crossed arms'; and avoid showing a 'poker face'); develop a sense of HUMOR; try hard to learn and SHOW International ‘EQ’ 【Emotional Intelligence】; and please always keep a LARGE namecard on your desk.
Activity handout sheets will be mixed with song-listening and video discussion exercises (to improve listening skills); with conversation (to keep the mood INTERNATIONAL and OPEN-MINDED, and to practice grammar and speaking); with News article-reading (to improve reading, writing, and grammar); with some videos; and with other items, to keep the class STIMULATING and cross-cultural.
Explanations by the teacher are given in English (and in a little Japanese, if needed).
Students are requested to participate 382%; to QUICKLY answer questions (and to EXPLAIN their answers); to be open-minded about new and different INTERNATIONAL teaching and learning styles; to show a good sense of HUMOR; and to understand that ‘Wasei Eigo’ is NOT useful English. Pair conversation will assist all of us to ‘ENERGIZE’, and to actively USE the English that we learn.
If students are MOTIVATED; come to every class; do ALL of the homework; and also do ‘self-study’ on their own, they can improve their English & International communication skills. Participation and positive energy are CRUCIAL to realizing your English & International goals. ‘Go for it!’ 【Gambatte!】
