Online English Conversation Classes
To help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, all lessons at Shizuoka Eiwa are currently being conducted online. This has led to some big changes in the way lessons are taught at our school. Our students have been using their iPads, computers and other devices at home to take part in lessons via a video conferencing app while teachers have been in the regular classrooms leading the class.
I have been very impressed by the way our students have adapted to this change in their learning environment. Online lessons are different to our regular classes but the students have tried their hardest to actively take part in the lessons and do their best.
During our English conversation classes, we have been trying many different new ideas to make the classes as exciting as possible. This includes playing vocabulary games involving gestures as well as using the functions available on the video conferencing application to do pair work and presentations.
As online classes continue, I hope the students continue to do their best and take this chance to improve their English-speaking skills. Both Jean and I are also thinking of new and exciting ways to make our lessons even more fun. We look forward to seeing you again very soon!
