If children are given opportunities to write and read hiragana, katakana, and alphabet, or chances to sing English songs and watch English DVDs, they will work better in class activities at OIS.
Japanese teachers and staff members flexibly deal with parents who don’t speak English, so it is not necessary.
We provide well-instructed Japanese lessons once a week. Children learn Japanese by writing and playing with words, and they also learn Japanese traditional events with children’s songs and hand gesture activities. Especially in the class for five-year-olds, they acquire Japanese writing and reading skills that are required at private and public Japanese elementary schools.
