OSAKA Study Group Meeting Nov. 23 (Sun) Information ■Completed■

There were so many disasters this summer. Our sympathy are always with those who were affected.

At the same time, it is harvest time. We hope you are able to enjoy what nature gives us, too.

The topics for our next Osaka Study Group Meeting are "There is a ~. There are ~s." "How many ~are there?"
We frequently hear that many teachers find this sentence pattern difficult to teach. With the MAT METHOD, we use Actions to have the students understand with fun. Please come and see how it works.

We will also introduce many Fun Christmas Activities.

Please join us.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!

OSAKA Study Group Meeting Sept. 7 (Sun) Information ■Completed■

Hello, Teachers!!
It looks like we are going to have another HOT, summer.
We hope you are all doing well and looking forward to your fun summer events.

The topics for our next Osaka Study Group Meeting are: How to teach countable and uncountable nouns and possessive pronouns with the sentence pattern "Whose bag is this?-It's his/her bag." Since these concepts are not in the Japanese language, they might give children problems when they go into junior high school and take English tests. Teaching younger children these grammar points clearly now will help them later. However, you might think that teaching grammar will bore your students.

The MAT METHOD can solve this problem!

By using the MAT Practice system, you will see how your students can learn the grammar without using difficult terms and enjoy the process of learning it.

We also plan to introduce some fun 'Halloween' activities, which you might want to try at your Halloween parties as well as in your daily lessons.

Please join us and see how the magic of the MAT METHOD will change your students !!!
