Individuals born and raised in an English-speaking country have the natural advantage of being immersed in its cultures and customs. On the other hand, a non-native English speaker may learn the language in their respective country, where the inherent culture is completely different. KPIS emphasizes the importance of learning about cultures and customs associated with the English language and applying it in a Western environment.
In recent years a number of large corporations in Japan have begun to operate in English and adopt Western business philosophies and management styles. Individuals who want to succeed in these firms need to know how to use the English language in an effective and appropriate manner. Both public and private Japanese schools fail to adequately prepare students for this kind of atmosphere. However, our program helps students become culturally literate and proficient in the English language.
English proficiency can reap immeasurable rewards in today’s society. An individual who can use English effectively can express his/her ideas to anyone, anywhere in the world. The ability to express oneself adeptly in English requires special training and proper education. After all, understanding English and understanding how to use the language as a “tool” to your advantage are two completely different things.
KPIS believes that fostering Western cultural awareness is essential for effective communication. Our program focuses grammatical competence and communicative performance as students learn the English language in context to Western culture and customs. Students master target vocabulary, grammar and develop all four areas of language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Grammar Composition Writing
Oral English (Listening & Speaking)
Phonics/Beginning Reading/Vocabulary Building
Speech Reading/Vocabulary Development
