Summer Intensives 2022

This summer, the OYIS Intensives Programs are offering an all-new curriculum with hands-on learning opportunities for students between the ages of 3 and 12 years old. Each week focuses on a theme that provides ongoing learning opportunities for the students each of the days during that week.

In this Intensive Program, the themes will be:

  • Week 1 – Art [Monday, July 18th to Friday, July 22nd]
  • Week 2 – Books and Authors [Monday, July 25th to Thursday, July 28th]
  • Week 3 – Superheroes [Tuesday, August 2nd to Friday, August 5th]
Within our immersive English environment, native & fluent non-Japanese and Japanese staff provide an engaging and stimulating learning environment. Each teaching teams work within each class to promote the student’s confidence when speaking and their overall communication skills. Students are grouped into similar age levels [Preschool & Kinder / Grade 1 & 2 / Grade 3 & 4 / Grade 5 & 6] to ensure similarities between gross and fine motor skill levels and social and emotional awareness and abilities. Activities throughout the day include a PE lesson, outside time, a morning fruit break, inquiry learning time, and discussion/circle time.

Our cross-disciplinary approach supports the stand-alone week-long programs we offer while supporting and encouraging students to work collaboratively with their peers with less of a focus on the academic elements. For those interested in finding out more information you can sign up for our online information session on Thursday, June 16th at 6:30 [Google Form can be found HERE] where you will receive a link to the meeting upon application or you can explore the information on our Intensive website [https://external.oyis.org/intensives/]. Alternatively, we are happy to answer any questions you have by emailing [[email protected]]. We’d love for you to join us this Summer!

今年の夏、OYISの短期集中プログラムでは3歳から12歳に向けた、体験型学習を取り入れた新しいカリキュラムご用意しています。各週ごとにテーマを設け、生徒の皆様が毎日継続的に学べる機会を提供させていただきます。

今回の集中プログラムのテーマ以下の通りです。
・第1期-アート[7月18日(月)~7月22日(金)]
・第2期-本と作家[7月25日(月)~7月28日(木)]
・第3期-スーパーヒーロー[8月2日(火)~8月5日(金)]

体感型英語環境の中で、ネイティブスタッフとバイリンガルの日本人スタッフ魅力的で刺激的な学習環境を提供いたします。各テーチングチームが各クラスで、生徒の皆様が自信を持ってスピーキングに取り組み、コミュニケーションスキルを向上できるよう努めます。生徒の皆様は近い年齢[幼稚園/1-2年生/3-4年生/5-6年生]で分けさせていただきます。なぜならファインモータースキルやソーシャル面、感情面などの能力が総体的に近いことが大切だからです。

一日のアクティビティの中に体育、外遊び、朝のフルーツタイム、探究学習、話合い/サークルタイムが含まれます。
クラスメイトと協力的に学習に取り組むよう働きかけ、アカデミックな面を軽減することで一週間の独立したプログラムを教科の枠を超えたアプローチを通して支援しています。プログラムにご興味のあられる方は6/16(木)に実施予定の説明会にぜひご参加ください。[グーグルフォームは こちら]フォームから申請していただけると説明会にご参加いただけるリンクが送られます。

The Silver Lining

If there is any silver lining to the last several years, it has been that we have been given time to really understand what we value in life. For me, that is spending time outside with my friends and family and being able to foster face-to-face relationships but professionally and privately.

日本語と英語と生きるということ

言語を学ぶことはその言語を文化理解するだけではなく受容することであるから、異なる見方や価値観に対して敏感かつ寛容になれるのは、異なる文化を行き来する間に経験する葛藤や混乱のおかげなのかもしれないとも思っている。
