Learning Worldシリーズは、日本の子供達向けに作られた中本幹子先生著のコースブック全9巻。
First book、 “WELCOME to Learning World PINK“(3~5歳対象) で「おはよう」から「おやすみ」までをトピックに、ボールを使った歌やパジャマの歌を歌い、英語に慣れ親しむところからスタート。Final bookの”Learning World for Tomorrow“(小学校高学年~中学生対象) では習った英語を駆使して「市長演説」や「絶滅の危機の動物」について考え、英語で書くなど、英語を自由に使えるレベルを可能にします。視野を世界に広げ、子供達が「考える楽しさ」、「自分と相手を肯定すること」を英語のレッスンを通して体感することで、どんな文化に出会ってもその文化を認め、自分の文化に誇りをもち、堂々と自分の意見が言える子供達を9年間にわたって育成する教材がLearning Worldシリーズです。


Q: Learning World シリーズに興味はあるのですがまだ使っていません。それでも参加できますか?
⇒Learning Worldをまだお使いでない方、これから先生になろうとお考えの方、他のシリーズを使用中の方、どなたも参加可能です。当日は受講生の先生方の机に、当日閲覧用のLearning Worldテキストをご用意しますので、実際のテキストの中を見ながらレクチャーをお聴きいただけます。

Learning World for Beginners Seminars (Fall 2014: Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya)

2014 Learning World Seminar!!

Learning World’s 9-year Curriculum:

When and what to teach?
What you need, and what you need to know.


Learning World’s 9 book series is not a traditional pattern practice textbook; it is a course designed to raise children who can confidently express themselves in English. The series is designed for children from 3 years old through junior high school 1st grade. The contents of each book take into careful consideration the developmental stages of children, class configurations, and class management needs.
This workshop is ideal for teachers considering Learning World for the first time, teachers who are thinking of switching textbooks, and teachers who are trying to decide on a new textbook. This workshop will help you understand Learning World and how it is different from other materials. You will have the chance to learn about the philosophy, when to use what book, how to use the materials, and what you need and how to use the materials effectively.
