With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, hardships and drawbacks have been felt across many aspects of our lives. In spite these difficult circumstances, I am very impressed by the determination of teachers who have created new learning environments and the attitudes of students who are adapting to these situations. Rising to the challenges of online lessons, teachers are finding a variety of innovative ways to teach as effectively as possible and we are committed more than ever to support you and your students with our range of digital tools. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at for advice on setting up new learning environments or visit to learn more.

This year, we will publish a new edition of the long-time best-selling 'Speaking of Speech'. It is a presentation book loved by many teachers. We are honored to have such a chance to republish this book. We hope to continue to work with you to contribute to the advancement of English language education in Japan during this challenging period.

Seeing Your Lesson From the Students’ Side #366

Sat, Nov 21, 11:20-12:20 JST

Teachers of young learners are often focused on getting through their daily lesson plan, but how often do they think about how their students see the lesson? If teachers scaffold the lesson to pique students’ natural curiosity, personalize the content to aid understanding, and not only model what to do, but also show the students that they can accomplish language tasks, the classes will go more smoothly, leaving the teacher and students feeling more satisfied.

Working Hard, Teaching Smart: A Holistic Approach #393

Sun, Nov 22, 14:00-15:00 JST

We all work hard to teach, but are we teaching smart? Teaching smart helps students take greater care and control of their learning, online or face-to-face. We’ll discuss some reasons how and why we should teach smart from creating intentional spaces to utilizing technology better. Using examples from National Geographic Learning’s digital support materials, we’ll look at a range of intentional spaces where learners can holistically acquire better communication skills for fluency and confidence.
