|@Knowing about other cultures helps us bridge the gap between the differences
we may encounter. And learning a language helps us embrace other cultures,
because when you learn a language you donft only learn how to speak the
language, but you also begin to understand the people. Koshigaya Minami
Senior High School is an excellent school to learn about various cultures
and it is where internationalization greets you at the doorsteps. Students
learn a variety of languages including Chinese, French, German, Spanish
and English. They learn how to speak as fluently as native English speakers
do, as well as using gestures and body language as a part of their speech.
@Students do not only learn about English grammar and phonetics, but in addition, they learn about traditions, customs, holidays, festivals and different types of food of other countries. Our students have the opportunity to practice English in and outside the classrooms with the two ALTs, who both have two completely different backgrounds. The classes are educative and enjoyable with games and fun activities. Students also get the opportunity to make posters of other countries, participate in English speech competitions and debates, make presentations and also visit foreign countries as a part of their learning experience.
