SELHi in Action

In its latest article on Super English Language High Schools (SELHis), the Daily Yomiuri looked at Onomichi Higashi High School in Hiroshima. The school is one of the 18 that were designated as the originaL SELHis when the pilot project was launched in 2002, the same year that the school started its global communication course. The 3-year SELHi program finished in March, but Onomichi Higashi is one of the few to continue with a new 3-year plan, with its aim being "to deepen collaboration between English- and Japanese-language classes." Basic communication skills are taught in both language classes, starting from simple question and answer games. It is hoped that the students will develop debating skills, "express their opinions and convey Japanese culture, especially the local culture of Onomichi, to the rest of the world." In December, all students on the global education course will attend a 3-week language training course in New Zealand.
