Open Day at Meisei Elementary

Regional news website this week carried an article on a recent open campus day held at the Meisei elementary school in the local city of Beppu. The main focus was on English classes, which are taught twice-weekly in all grades. On Fridays, the morning greetings are done in English and all students enjoy English conversation and songs. The school says students have clearly benefited from starting in first grade, in particular developing good pronunciation. During the open campus, Canadian ALT Chris White taught a first grade class, practising pronunciation and songs and playing games. The children seemed very relaxed and able to enjoy the lesson.
