How are English classes at elementary schools being carried out?


There has been so much debate and a considerable amount of confusion about what is really happening in English classes at elementary schools in Japan. Carla Wilson of ELT News has asked six specialists to help clarify things. Click here to read the comments of Mark Fennelly, Ann Mayeda, Steven Nishida, Tom Merner, Catherine Oki and Myron Wright, all of whom are highly respected insiders with a wealth of information.

This is the first discussion for the new 'Teaching Children' discussion section of ELT News that is being edited by Carla. For each discussion, she will choose a topic and invite specialists to contribute. The aim is to cover a wide range of topics related to teaching children in Japan.
