What is a typical lesson with Global Zone Japan?
We test speaking, listening, reading and writing.
1) Conversation - 25/50 minute conversation lesson via Skype. (testing speaking and listening).
Our teaching leader Mr. David will chat with the student using selected topics online (student chooses suitable topic) and Mr. David will write out what the student is saying via the chat box in Skype or Zoom in more natural English.
More natural feeling => After a busy day, I often enjoy a cold glass of wine and I can unwind/wind down. (unwind = relax and release stress).
More natural sentence => My Twitter account blew up due to the Japan Times writing an article about me. (blow/blew up = become very popular).

2) Homework - After each lesson, we will give you a stimulating homework. (testing reading and writing). When finished, kindly send it back to us.
Mr. David will choose a theme agreed with the student such as Women in the workplace or Workplace ethics etc. We have hundreds of topics with many key words in English and Japanese.
Example of a theme => These women are answering the following question, Should women work after marriage? (First read the article), then write your opinion. We will check your writing.
Q) Should woman work after marriage?
=> Woman should work after marriage because to have the job is the have the good life and be safe. Woman shouldn't rely on a man or anybody.
=> I believe woman have a right to work after marriage as they want to have a place to feel safe and earn money. Without relying on a sole income, women can be independent and have a better life for their children.
