The British council in Tokyo is pleased to announce the introduction of Mini-courses for teachers of English in the Junior and Senior high schools. These courses will be made up of five evening seminars, held fortnightly during the Winter and Spring Terms. They are designed to assist teachers in their day to day teaching and provide practical ideas for adopting Communicative Methodology to the Japanese Junior and Senior school classrooms. Teachers attending all the sessions receive a British Council Certificate at the end of the course.
About this course:
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the reasons for using songs, rhymes and chants and the considerations made when choosing a song, rhyme or chant in the classroom. They will be introduced to a number of songs, rhymes & chants (Including folk songs, nursery rhymes and popular music) and practical ideas of how to use these. In the final session of the mini-course, the participants will plan lessons using a song, rhyme or chant. Following group demonstrations, the various activities and techniques employed will be analysed and discussed. More info at
