The Need for English Competency in this Global Era

On Tuesday, February 3, Tatsuya Kimura, a teacher at Nada Junior & Senior High School, gave a lecture to second year Fukiai students at Oji Zoo Hall on this subject: "The Necessity for English Competency in this Global Era".


Mr. Kimura talked about a wide-range of personal experiences at high school and beyond including family life, (baseball) club activities, life at university and his job as a teacher. He also discussed the challenges involved with learning a foreign language – English. Mr. Kimura used his wonderful sense of humor to make his points hit home and keep our students fully engaged over his two-hour talk.

  

The latter part of the lecture included practical advice from Mr.Kimura’s about how to improve English competency - in particular his personal methodologies for improving the memorization of vocabulary and listening ability. One technique was his Quick Response Method which helps students to quickly utilize vocabulary items stored in their memories. The main ideas behind this rely on “pronunciation and recollection mastery” through repetition and getting into the good habit of daily study and review.


Mr. Kimura also pointed out that to achieve good results, it is necessary to have a personal desire and drive to study, and not do it just because you are forced to by someone else.

 

We are sure that many of our students were inspired by the lecture and hope they will employ some of the techniques they learned today.
