This summer, in the summer of 2017, we are starting Lingua France English Camp in Yamanashi prefecture. This is very similar to Hakunetsu English camp that we do every summer, but will be opened to any junior high school or high school students in Japan.
We are hoping to reach out to more students in Japan and to provide life changing experiences.
~Identifying personal challenges, finding solutions~
This is an entrepreneurship training program based on active learning and the ’24 steps’ method advocated by Bill Aulet, head of the MIT Entrepreneurship Center.
Students personally tackle everything from identifying a challenge to testing their ideas, with a focus not just on learning how to start a business, but also how to use problem-solving to ensure a positive global impact.
・Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship
~Learning English skills for the 21st Century~
With the support of the biggest documentary network in the world, the Discovery Channel, we use English-learning materials with a focus on ‘real-life English plus intellectually stimulating topics’, using videos watched by native speakers.
We also offer online lessons with foreign teachers based on these teaching materials.
