Apricot Kids English School, is an international preschool, after school, English conversation school located in Tenno, Ibaraki City.
When I see a foreigner, I tend to avoid them. This is because I am not confident enough in my English skills, so I try not to start conversations with them.
More often than not, this is how many Japanese people feel, but I doubt any of them want their kids to have these similar issues in the future. English is becoming more and more needed in Japan as the years go by. If your child doesn’t start learning from an early age, eventually it will be a lot more difficult.
In Apricot Kids, they will learn the 4 most important skills that are: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We specifically practice speaking which is our main focus as the best way to improve your English speaking is through frequent conversation practice.
In Japan, English is often taught from Junior High School, but when they reach Junior High School a lot of students lose the will to continue learning as they approach many changes in their life. This sadly, allows many of them to forget all the English they have learnt.
Kids are more likely to be more determined to learn English as they have no shame in making all sorts of mistakes. They will imitate teachers’ pronunciations, ask many questions and even ask about different topics that come from other cultures.
Our foreign teachers also regularly assess the strengths and levels of each student, this makes teaching them more adequate and is also more effective for the student.
Student’s also make a lot of friends they get to see regularly, this makes lessons all the more enjoyable, this helps them greatly enhance their communication skills as even Japanese students have to speak in English to one-another.
At Apricot Kids, our goal is to create “All-embracing, broad minded people of the future!”.
