Many 6th grade students quit English lessons in anticipation of Junior High School. You shouldn’t quit. You should continue.
Let’s look at why you might want to leave and why you shouldn’t.
#1 Reason: My child can’t make the time because club activities finish late.
1. Why should my child go to Dave and Amy English School? My child has English everyday at school and in cram school.
Our lessons emphasize speaking. Jr. High School and High School Classes at school and cram school often emphasize grammar and vocabulary. (Of course, you will also learn grammar and vocabulary but the main focus of class time is speaking and listening)
1. How are lessons grouped?
For elementary school students, we place students into classes depending on reading level. Why? 40 minutes of the class is reading and speaking in pairs. Students should be similar reading levels to participate fully in class.
Writing is a solitary activity. So it doesn’t matter if there are different writing levels in the same class.

Students who have never lived abroad CAN become bi-lingual, but they need to put in a lot of effort.
At Dave and Amy English School, we teach students that have never left Japan, but are able to join our returnee lessons (with children who have lived abroad for 3 or more years). Let’s go through what is necessary.
*** These tips are for our Japanese students in Japan---but of course, can be used by ANYONE to learn a 2nd language.
Tip # 1: READ.
How can Returnees retain English at a high level? and How can students who have never lived abroad become bi-lingual?
At Dave and Amy English School, we have taught a lot of returnees. We try to help returnees keep their fluency, comprehension, reading and writing abilities at a high level, and improve them. But it takes hard work. How do we do this effectively?
