Does your English-speaking child need a place to converse and learn?
Look no further!
Our afternoon and evening programs are exclusively for fluent English speaking elementary and junior high school students–perfect for Returnees, English Kindergarten Graduates, and Dual Cultural Children who attend Japanese elementary and junior high schools. Our curriculum and environment are carefully designed to maximize language use and to provide each child with personalized literacy instruction.
At Discovery, your child’s inquiries serve as the starting point for engaging in research projects, where teachers assist children in finding and sharing answers to questions and topics of their own personal interest. This provides the opportunity for natural and contextual English communication, and ensures a high level of personal motivation!
Here are a few projects our Grads and Teens groups have researched:
- How are cars made?
- Why are people born?
- Why does the Earth spin?
- How do you make a video?
At Discovery, we recognize that children develop reading and writing skills at different paces. We individualize instruction in order to provide each child with the precise support they need to continue growing as readers and writers in all areas: Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Vocabulary. We also spend time in small groups to increase children’s understanding and use of grammatical structures in speech and writing.
Know what’s happening in your child’s class!
Teachers share classroom doings with photos and videos after each class on our secure parent app. We also speak to parents in person at the end of each class, and offer parent-teacher meetings to discuss your child’s English development.
After each research project, children share what they have learned in various ways: books, posters, videos, puppet shows, etc. Sound interesting? Come in for a visit to see what a unique program we have to offer!
