Tsuda College Explores Children's English Learning

Yesterday's Daily Yomiuri carried an article on Tsuda College in western Tokyo and a volunteer group of students and instructors who are researching English-language education for primary school students. With the cooperation of a local primary school, the group has been developing lessons for students in the third grade and above several times a year. Lessons are topic- rather than grammar-based, focusing on things which are familiar to the students, such as rice. The approach is summed up as being "about what and in what way children talk in English."
