Fun and Educational Events
Universal Campus offers a variety of fun English learning events. There are four picnics a year, as well as a summer camp, Halloween Party, Christmas Party, Easter Party, and Speech Performance Day. These events are filled with educational elements focusing on “natural English conversation.”
At Universal Campus, there are four picnics a year. We do things such as BBQ’s, going to aquariums, visiting the Space and Sience Museum, and so on. The picinics are always a lot of fun and are a great way for kids to be able to apply their English skills outside of the classroom.
Summer English Camp
We have Summer English Camp for two nights every year. For this event, teachers practice for a dance routine they will teach to the kids at camp. We cook food with the kids, do fun activities like swimming or canoeing, and have a big campfire to toast marshmallows.
The Halloween Party is very special for native teachers. Kids and teachers wear interesting costumes, participate in lots of fun Halloween activities, and get lots of candy.
Kids can learn about Christmas by joining in special party activities and celebrating the holiday with teachers. They also have the chance to get to meet Santa Claus.
Our teachers not only build up their teaching skills, but business experience as well. They have many opportunities to gain a better understanding of Japanese culture by communicating with Japanese students and their parents, as well as working as a team member with Japanese staff members.
Interacting with students and their parents in the lobby is very important to build trust and discuss the progress of students in class. It also gives native teachers the opportunity to learn how to properly communicate with Japanese customers.
After school, native teachers and Japanese teachers clean the classrooms together. By keeping the school clean, we are ensuring that students can learn in a safe and hygenic environment.
Native teachers have sample lessons to introduce UC to prospective students and their parents. It’s the first time for many students to immerse themselves in English, so teachers should support and encourage students to enjoy English.
