What We Do
English for General Purposes (EGP):
These courses include pronunciation and intonation, listening and speaking, and workplace English courses. The main goal is to develop the listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills needed in daily life, on campus, and in the workplace.
English for Specific Purposes (ESP):
These courses, which include socializing, presentations, meetings, and interpretation, are designed for professionals with specific needs. Also included are professional development courses for teachers, such as intensive courses for current bilingual instructors and B2 English enhancement courses.
English for Academic Purposes (EAP):
These courses include our joint program with the University of Southampton, all-English speaking and writing courses for university students, and preparation courses for academic language proficiency tests (e.g., TOEFL, IELTS). Geared toward academic contexts, the course materials are particularly focused on developing the skills of information integration, note-taking, summarization, and application.
Competency-Based English Courses:
Designed for junior and senior high school students, these courses use inquiry-based teaching to encourage students to learn by doing; to learn strategies for listening, speaking, reading, and writing; and to develop the ability to think and to solve problems with English.
These courses use the LTTC’s own course materials, the “Japanese GoGoGo” textbook series. With communication as the main goal, these courses combine the four core skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing and help students develop the comprehensive Japanese abilities needed in daily life, during travel, on campus, and in the workplace.
News, Cultural Japanese:
With diverse topics including Japanese news, literature, politics, economics, and other cultural areas, this course gives learners opportunities to practice with the integrated application of conversation, reading, writing, and listening. The learners further develop these abilities and put them to use in real life while learning about Japanese society and culture.
Half-Day Japanese Course,
High School Competency Course:
Designed with inquiry-based teaching, these courses begin by combining Japanese pronunciation with various useful conversations. These courses allow learners to understand diverse uses and meanings, to develop competency in using the acquired knowledge to solve problems, and at the same time to reflect on cultural differences.
JLPT Prep Course:
This course allows students to understand diverse uses and meanings by applied practice, such as listening to conversations and reading articles. It also includes explanations of problem-solving strategies for improving one’s vocabulary and grammar. At the same time, this course helps students to develop comprehensive language abilities that are applicable outside of exams.
