IIEEC Celebrating 30 Years of training teachers in Japan and over the world!

IIEEC is on it's 30th year of working with teachers and training them with the Model Action Talk (MAT METHOD). The MAT Method was created by Ritsuko Nakata to help students learn faster and better without pain. It was also developed so that teachers would have a solid system to teach in a systematic way. Let's Go is also based on the principles of MAT -- to teach student how to Ask questions as well as Answer them, to give them the opportunity to speak on their own (not just repeating) and to start Reading and Writing early so that they would be proficient in the Four Skills (Listening, speaking, reading and writing).
We are so proud to be able to give teachers the basic skills needed to teach and get immediate results! Thank you everyone for supporting us!

Osaka Study Group Meeting March 4th Announcement


We hope that you and your students are having a great time in your classes.
Although it is still very cold, we can see that the sun is gaining its power again and spring is coming towards us.

Speaking of spring, March is coming soon and it is when we start to think of our new school year.
I imagine that you might have a conversation like this.

What do you have to do to prepare for school?
Do you have to buy some notebooks?

So we chose this sentence pattern for our topic.

With the MAT METHOD, we believe that it is important to relate what we teach to students' experiences and to use a natural situation to introduce the target language.
Why is it important?
Let's discuss and find a good way to teach English with excitement.


Please join us and experience how the students will feel when they are taught with the MAT METHOD.

Reservations are necessary. Please register now to assure your seat.
We are looking forward to seeing you.

Dear teachers,

We hope your teaching is going well and your students are having fun in your class.
The topic for our next Study Group Meeting is how to do an effective review.

It is said that students forget what they learn quickly, especially young children.
Then, how do we have them remember what they have learned?
It is to review, isn't it? Then, how do you review in every lesson? How long do you spend on it?

We can find the answers with the MAT METHOD.

Join us and be a great teacher!
