Effective Classroom Techniques to Catch and Maintain Pupils’ Interest in English Lessons. Yoko Matano. The presenter will share several tips to make studying English more fun for students, such as attention-grabbing ways to present materials, useful techniques to shift the speaking focus on to the learners, and effective ideas to create variety in oral exercises, as well as a simple self-evaluation sheet for children to rate their experience in the lesson. She will describe the ideas and techniques, while showing the audience her English lessons as conducted at elementary schools. The lessons introduce the alphabet and use English picture books for story-based lessons. These lessons could also serve as a foundation for more successful junior high school English lessons.

Volunteering is not only good for the Hiroshima JALT community but also looks good on a CV. It is a great opportunity to get involved and contribute to your community. We sincerely hope you will consider applying your talents, whatever they may be, to Hiroshima JALT's cause.
