Rob writes:
In this session, we will look at some practical ways to teach all-English classes to elementary, junior and senior high school students in Japan. We will start by brainstorming some methods of introducing classroom English, before dealing with the practicalities of teaching grammar and vocabulary without using translation. Finally, we will review the benefits of introducing an extensive reading program.

Rob currently works at Oxford University Press and is an Oxford Teachers' Academy certified teacher trainer. He has spent many years in Japan teaching to students of all ages as well as providing teacher support through workshops.
