e-school CooLA-Explanation of each course

Conversation/Grammar course

From first-time Japanese learners to advance conversation. A new learning style developed by a team of Japanese education specialists who researched learning “Japanese you can speak”.

Based on research by a team of Japanese education specialists who researched the order, content and method of study. We have developed this course with the two pressing topics of “content which the learner can comprehend without stress” and “obtainment of practical Japanese that works”. From the results of that systematic, new curriculum we have utilized a teaching method that leaves behind no doubt in the learner’s mind. And, by creating video lectures which have taken into consideration learning through sight and sound by utilizing video techniques, we have created a new total learning package that matches the learner’s needs.

◆ Sound: Japanese with subtitles and text translated into: traditional Chinese and English
We have adopted the most effective teaching method, a hybird of an indirect method (native language subtitles and translation) and a direct method (Japanese) (to understand the logically in your head while your ears hear Japanese).

Speed and pace of proficiency

Speed and pace of proficiency

◆ Speed and pace of proficiency
In CooLA’s course you will be able to do a self-introduction after two weeks of starting. After one month of study you will be able to do simple, everyday conversation.

◆ The reason behind the fast proficiency ~ learning by formulas ~
Why can students in our course learn to speak so quickly? Each grammatical pattern is indicated by a formula, just like a mathematical formula and there is a detailed explanation of the formula (grammatical pattern) allowing students to remember the formula without any doubts left behind.

◆ From understanding to learning ~learning by example sentences ~
For each sentence pattern, students will look at the lecture on a formula and its explanation. After doing so, they will practice by replacing words in the formula along with the teacher of the lecture. There is a formula and a detailed explanation about it so there are no doubts left behind. And, by practicing replacing various words into the formula, students will be able to learn the sentence patterns. Then, by applying other words such as verbs, adjectives and nouns, students will be able to freely make any number of conversations on their own.

Sense of security and joy learning Japanese through one’s own understanding

◆ Sense of security and joy learning Japanese through one’s own understanding
As the lessons progress you will combine the various knowledge that you have come to possess and get ever closer to mastering Japanese at a high speed. This type of "learning based on true understanding" is something that cannot be gained through insufficient explanations and phrase learning, which leave behind doubts in the learner’s mind.

◆ Exercises
Each lesson comes with exercises. By trying to solve the problems, students can confirm whether they firmly understand the sentence patterns learned in that section and can completely master sentence patterns by doing iterative practice. If students use a smartphone, such as when waiting for someone or when waiting on a train and such, in just a short period of time they can do practice exercises.
