Our speakers focus on practical teaching techniques that participants can apply to many different age groups. We also hold an annual summer BBQ along the Nagara river and a winter Christmas turkey dinner.

One major challenge for teachers using music in EFL classes is choosing appropriate material to both stimulate student interest while serving as a worthwhile linguistic activity.

Additionally, participants will learn about extension activities for songs that support cooperative learning.
