Activity area on the right hand side of Learning World takes a long time to see the result.
Though some teachers use Learning World because of its catchy chants and fun tunes. Chants, words or listening tests are not enough for kids to talk fluently.
Training them for Eiken qualification allows students to pass the exam as their knowledge improves with the chants. However they still need continuous activities to get to the point where they can explain what they want to say. It is one of the most important contents for English education. Please do not skip the activities and spend 15-20 minutes on them.

With Learning World methods, are Color Kyogu (Teacher’s Aids) and Activity Sheets necessary as teacher’s tools?

Yes, they are necessary to “use” the English the students have learned. These tools are made for the activities which require the students to ask questions, please use them in your classes. This is a good start to make students speak in English.

“Keys from Leaning World”

1.
Even when students do not know the answers, let them say “I don’t know” in English. Use English as a language. English is not only a leaning topic.

2.
Let them use English as much as they can. Begin with communication activities with various choices – Not a single answer!

3.
Listen and bring in what your students feel. Try to think as everyone got a right point.

4.
“Opening your textbook” at the beginning of the lesson is NOT fun. That usually makes your students quiet.
