九州外語専門学校のモットーは”Now is your future!”です。「今する事」が過去を作り、未来を作り出す「エネルギー」であると考えての提案です。ご存知の様に、「英語」がグローバル化した世界の共通語となっていますから、「今する事」の一つとして「英語で自分の考えや技能を表現する能力」を培う事は必須でしょう。当校では第二言語としての英語を「日本語」に移し変えて学習するのではなく、英語自体が持つ言語的な構造、語源の理解を基礎的なツールとして、「表現されている内容」をイメージとして捉える事で、「英語を頭脳で食べて身につける」授業をしています。英語と言う言語の持つ奥深さ、人格を大事にする性質、事実そのものを表現する文章構造などが具体的に解るにつれて、英語習得が面白くなり上達します。 Now, Come and Join Us!

In my class, students spend time talking about their weekly events and asking questions to each other about what they have done.
The topics range from hobbies to jobs to vacations and so on.
Also, there are some practiced dialogues with a variety of situations, including : ordering in a restaurant, checking in at the airport, dealing with problems at a hotel, etc.
Everyone has a good time in the class including me, Thomas (the teacher).
Every class is exciting and enjoyable.
Let’s speak English together.
In my classes we read articles and have presentations.
I try to encourage everyone to read and talk about things that they are interested in and want others to know about.
My goal is for the students to get comfortable with reading in English, talking in front of a group and voicing opinions.

Hey What’s up? I’m Lee from Canada, and I’m one of the teachers have in the Oral English class at Kyushu Gaigo College, as well as in the “Wallabies” After school hoiku ALL English immersion program. In the Oral English class you’ll be engaged in real world modern English conversation. You’ll be shown English Sentence patterns, articles in use and prepositions which in fact are some of the hardest or most difficult English for Japanese people made simpler by image training. We also have a daily pronunciation exercise to train your brain to use the muscles in your face not associated with or not normally used in Japanese needed by both the speaker and the listener. This is important to properly comprehend and express English. The class’s all spoken no written with the use of modern tools such as tablets, smart phones and the like which I highly recommend to make your English a more convenient experience. No note books required if you would choose.
How's it going? I'm Shane from Melbourne, Australia. I encourage students to share their interests and passions, thereby gaining confidence expressing themselves in English. Languages open up new worlds, perspectives and possibilities for us. With the world as it is English is clearly the most useful global language, so I want to help my students gain fluency using English in a variety of contexts. Such as English for: job interviews, business meetings, giving presentations, travels situations (e.g. booking hotels, tours and renting cars), making international friends, and for students planning to study abroad in Western countries (England, America, Canada, Australia etc.). My favorite class to teach is Movie Analysis (Critical Thinking), because I believe most people can relate to and enjoy movies. Movies tell us stories, similar to novels, and good stories are full of ideas, themes, allegories, and messages that reflect the reality of life. By analyzing movies we need to understand what writers and directors are trying to tell us (the audience), so this necessitates critical thinking. As all words in all languages begin with ideas, the process of forming and expressing our opinions about movies naturally enables us to expand our English vocabulary. I do push my students to express their opinions, as it’s a crucial aspect of communicating in English speaking countries. So if you want to study English in a meaningful and fun way, please join my class. Look forward to meeting you. Cheers!
English Writing, After 5 Critical Thinking
Hi. I'm originally from North Dakota in the US, and I’ve lived most of my adult life in southern and northern California. I received my BA in the academic study of religions and my MA in philosophy, with a focus on ethical and political philosophy and the philosophy of global human rights. I have been a writing instructor for many college students, graduate students, and adult professionals from the United States, Japan, and other countries. I really enjoy teaching and helping people learn. My goal is to help people improve their skills as much as possible, but I try to teach in a relaxed and casual way, and help students learn in enjoyable and interesting ways.
I can teach English writing, reading and conversation to both individuals and classes. I try to base my teaching on the interests and needs of my students. In my Critical Thinking class, we read and discuss material from many different areas, including history, politics, culture, religious studies, ecology, health, professional subjects, and anything else that students are interested in learning. We don't use any textbook English, only real English texts written for English speakers. In this class, we begin by learning to read and write rational, persuasive arguments. We also study ideology and social institutions, and try to question the ideologies and social institutions that are alive in the world today. We try to question authority, society, and our own assumptions about the world, in order to become independent thinkers, readers, writers, and speakers. Students in this class also have the opportunity to write and share their writing with the class. If you are interested in this class, private lessons, or any other classes that I teach, I would be happy to meet you and discuss your interests and needs.
