What is Learning World?

The Learning World series is not just about students having fun while learning English. It carefully considers Japanese children’s age and developmental stages. From one level to the next, there is some overlap, gradually expanding and increasing the language used. This gradual expansion allows children to confirm the language they already know, while naturally recognizing and accepting new language. The entire Learning World series has been carefully designed to meet these goals of naturally acquiring language. The books in WELCOME to Learning World can be used with beginners from preschool age; their basic design is a picture book packed with chants, songs, dialogues and activities. The backbone of the eight-book Learning World series is Book 1, Book 2 and Book 3, which were revised in 2008 and 2009.The books’ new design is a truly unique course book which incorporates an effective 2-page spread focusing on communication activities, and uses well-established chants and dialogues to efficiently remember language. READY for Learning World condenses essential English into one text and is designed so that upper-level elementary students studying English for the first time can effortlessly understand and enjoy English. Learning Wold for TOMORROW, the highest level in the series, incorporates more creative writing and its aim is for students to gain a better command of language they’ve learned so they can easily express themselves in English.

WELCOME to Learning World PINK

For: Children aged 3 to 5.

WELCOME to Learning World PINK tells about the daily life of a 3-4 year old child. It uses chants, dialogs and songs with fun actions to introduce communication between mother and child. The daily scenes include get up in the morning, have breakfast, go to a playground, go out with mother, put the toys away, go to a supermarket with mother, take a bath, put on pajamas, and go to bed. Each unit has Arts & Crafts material (in the Student Book), using TPR to reinforce language.

2nd Edition was published March 1, 2021. Find out more about the changes here.
