2 Essential speaking skills for teaching English
For teachers thinking, “I want to teach in English, but I don’t know where to start,” this course provides training to improve fundamental speaking skills. Not only does it focus on improving normal speaking proficiency, but it also helps students learn the important skill of conversing with their peers in English during a real classroom scenario. This course also helps students to strengthen their ability to speak on a variety of topics, including culture, stories, history, and studying overseas.
The online format allows participants to study at their convenience, making it perfect for busy high school teachers and university students.
Supplementary Course: “Improve Your Speaking with a Native English Instructor” (8 Lessons)

“Teaching in English is quite difficult, so no matter who you are, you will need proper training in order to do it well. Even if you are fluent in English, training is essential to effectively use English in a teaching setting.
The ‘Improve Your English Classes! – Speaking Lessons’ was created to provide that sort of training. By following the detailed steps, you can hone your teaching abilities. It’s a self-directed course, so the materials can also be used for a university teaching course.
Every journey starts with a single step. Why not get started with your training right away?”
said Misato Usukura, Associate Professor, Department of Education at Tokyo Gakugei University.
“More than ten years have passed since the government curriculum guidelines called for ‘English courses to be taught primarily in English.’ However, in reality, there are still many hurdles to teaching in English using the authorized textbook. In particular, cultivating the necessary English ability to teach in English and learning the teaching format are both essential. The objective of this course is to increase one’s ability to teach English courses in English. EdulinX has specifically prepared easy-to-understand content for teaching a high school ‘English Communications’ course. More than from the teacher’s perspective, I think it’s good to look at English learning from the standpoint of what is best for students,”
said Yuichi Suzuki, Associate Professor at Kanagawa University.
