The Latest on SELHi's

The Daily Yomiuri this week carried the 13th installment in its series on the government-designated Super English Language High School (SELHi) pilot project. The article looked at Osaka Jogakuin Senior High School and its efforts to develop students' debating skills through its Active Communication class. For first year students, the emphasis is on journalism, and students research their own stories, carry out interviews or surveys with fellow students and use the Internet to prepare their presentations. Listening skills are also strongly emphasized, with students required to listen to English-language sources outside of class. The all-girls school is a pioneer in English-language education in Osaka, having introduced the first course in 1971.
