Shadoku (Extensive Reading while Shadowing) is a method which enables learners to read lots of books out loud by themselves for pleasure starting with easy fun books. This enables students to read a tremendous amount of words and phrases and gets them simulating expressions in the stories. They not only improve their reading fluency (reading with expressions) but also their output ability as well. Yuko will introduce her classroom practice and the effects of Shadoku on her students' speaking and writing.

Yuko is the owner of ABC4YOU English School in Tokyo and an experienced teacher trainer and presenter. She is a trainer of the English Tadoku Reading Club and works closely as an Extensive Reading (Tadoku) advisor with English teachers of young learners, junior and senior high school teachers. She received her Masters of Science from Keio University in 1994.
