Training and workshops

Field-trip workshops

We will visit your school or community and provide workshops or training sessions. We will tailor the content of these workshops to meet your local needs. You may also request a lecturer from the various instructors listed on this website.

University workshops

We also invite participants for workshops at Naruto University of Education or attached facilities to the University (such as fuzoku elementary school). The lecturers are faculty from the University and other guests lecturers who are involved in elementary school English education. Themes of these lectures include elementary school English educational theory, teacher professional development, and English skills development.


Each year we hold a symposium featuring guest lecturers and panel discussants, providing the latest news dealing with not only elementary school English education, but other broader English educational issues. We address educational issues not only in Japan, but abroad also, and have cooperated with lectures from Finland, South Korea, China and Taiwan thus far.
