Junior high school
Okinawa Shogaku lists "communication skills" as one of the four essential qualities of globally educated people. The ability to understand other people and be understood by them is a necessary goal for the students. Communication skills include linguistic ability to understand one another using words, empathy to understand feelings, and reasoning to understand each other. Language skills in Okinawa Shogaku are mainly Japanese and English. Eiken is a compulsory means of improving English communication skills, and there are target grades for each grade from junior high school entrance to high school graduation. Students and teachers work together to achieve this goal. Many students participate in English speech and debate contests every year, and have achieved good results. Improving intercultural communication skills is one of the goals of Okinawa Shogaku.
Target grades are set for each grade level, and all students are working as required.In junior high school, we offer Eiken exam preparation classes by exam grade, "Grade 1", "Grade Pre-1", "Grade 2", "Grade Pre-2", "Grade 3"and "Combined Grades 4 & 5" after school (16:45-17:30) from Monday to Friday.In high school, there is a weekly "Eiken Preparation" class in which students take on writing and listening tests (by exam grade).We often provide individual guidance to students who need it after school.
