Sai no Kuni, a yearly collaborative event hosted by ETJ Saitama and Saitama JALT, will be held on April 6th at Sakuragi Kouminkan, in the Lecture Rooms (501/502) on the 5th floor.

  • Graham Finch (ETJ Saitama) Tic Tac Toe
    In this presentation, the audience will see how the presenter piques students' interest into creating a Tic Tac Toe game and then gets them to drill without realizing they are drilling.
    Graham has been teaching for more years than he cares to remember. He teaches at his own language school in Saitama. He is also the ALT at an elementary school in Saitama and at a school for children with special needs in Tokyo.
  • Coco Okuno (ETJ Saitama) How to plan the Easter event
    Last year, the presenter held Easter and Halloween events in collaboration with Patricia Daly Oe, a picture book writer and English teacher. In this presentation, she'll show what they did at the Easter event, share the ideas of the songs and games for the different age groups. They'll have another Easter event this year too.
    Coco Okuno majored in Education at a university in Japan. She took the ESL course at Tulane University in New Orleans. She worked for a famous langage school after graduation, and became a director of one of the branch school in Saitama. She quit her job as she had her first child, then she started her own school at home when her second child was 1 year old. She's been teaching there for 18 years.

This event is a joint event between ETJ Saitama and Saitama JALT.
