Group Lessons Enhance Effective Communication Skills and Boost Self-Confidence

Encouraging active participation in group lessons can be an effective method to improve not just a student’s communication and interpersonal skills but it also helps develop self-confidence. Being in a group also enhances the ability to listen actively to other speakers and respond appropriately to a conversation. It promotes meaningful exchange of ideas and insights among the participants while boosting their ability to express their thoughts with confidence.
The first group class that I handled in Englishbuds is the reading lesson for kids. It was truly a fun and interactive class wherein young readers are given the opportunity to share their favorite stories in class. They also get to read the featured stories for that session with me. I have noticed how these young readers have improved a lot as they participate more in every reading session. They have become more creative in sharing their stories and are more comfortable in speaking up during the class.
Another group that I get to facilitate is the debate class. It’s been more than a year since we launched the Debate group lesson in Englishbuds. We were hesitant at first because debating is not common in Japan and most students might be a bit shy to speak out. But, the participants were very impressive and confident in speaking up. At the outset, they already have the potential in debating. This potential was even further maximized when they regularly participated in the group classes.
At first, I handled only two debate group classes every weekend for the advanced and intermediate levels. But now the number of debate classes has doubled with over fifteen students already. I am very happy and proud to see every student’s progress over the past year. They have improved a lot in terms of communication & critical thinking skills and in their ability to express themselves with confidence. What I also like about these group lessons is to see how the students are enjoying the class. I am happy to see their eagerness to learn more and to improve their communication skills. The participants also become more motivated to excel in the debate because of a healthy competition in these classes. Thanks to Teacher Kiddie and Teacher Gretchen who are always there to help me in the debate lessons as judges.
Teaching in Englishbuds has been a great source of inspiration and joy to me for these past five years. It’s been a breath of fresh air after a hectic week of lawyering and reading voluminous legal documents. I am truly grateful to Mommy Kayo and Englishbuds for giving me an avenue to pursue my passion in teaching. It is indeed true that the most rewarding aspect of being a teacher is the opportunity to make a positive impact on the future generation. Nothing makes a teacher prouder than seeing their students grow holistically and to succeed in life.



互いに交流することで自信が付くというのは確かですね。



時々、手が空いた時は

ディベート部やリーディングクラスを覗かせもらいますが

どんどんみんな自信に満ち溢れた表情・態度に

成長していってくれることに気付かされます。




お互いの意見を認め合うというスタンスから

自分の意見が認めてもらえることを積み重ねていくことで

自己肯定感も上がっていくのでしょうね♪




非常にいい流れだと思います(^^)


英語だけでなく、

そういう相乗効果もあるならば願ったり叶ったりですね♪
