Speaker 1: Nicky Sekino
Title: Melt the ice of English Learners who do not want to study.
Outline: I find it painful to see students in my class who are not interested in English study. They show no emotions on their faces. It is like the English study is torture to them. How to make them study is close to a miracle. I have taught English for 40 years and am not sure how to reverse the situation. So far, I have not found a way to melt the ice of the closed mind. However, there is a light. A psychological theorem called Receptive / Expressive Language Disorder shows why children do not learn or speak English well. I want to apply it to see if I can melt the ice of adult learners of English.

Speaker 2: Yuco Kikuchi
Title: Teacher's Bag of Tricks 2: Teaching Prepositions for Halloween Season Outline
In this short practical presentation, Yuco will share activities for teaching prepositions. Learning preposition will be fun and simple through various activities, especially if the activities are related to seasonal characters of Halloween. TPR, drawing and action game will be shown.

Speaker 3: Namiko Tsuruta
Title: Tech 101 for Beginners
Abstract: Attending a videoconference and running one yourself are different experiences. Do you know what interactive features your participants can try? Are you reluctant to try or simply don't know which tech tools are best for your learners? Please join us for a relaxing, fun and interactive session. It's learner engagement, above all else, that tech tools must support. Due to time, we will focus mainly on videoconferencing features, screen sharing and how to use one or two tech tools for all age groups.

Please join us on your PC with the newest version of Zoom (if at all possible). to pre-register;
