ONLY SERIOUS STUDENTS ARE WELCOME ! GUARANTEED GOAL-ACHIEVEMENT
Thorough supplementary instruction ! Uncompromising dedicated teaching. From 'beginners' to 'specialists' levels.
A systematic combination of a "theoretical lesson" (a lesson focused on theory) by a Japanese teacher and a "practical lesson" (a lesson focused on practice) with a native English teacher.
After the "language formation period" (between the ages of 0 and 10), you begin to lose "the ability to learn a language through experience", so you can't make significant progress in English, only learning through experience, for example, living abroad, or having a lot of opportunities to meet and talk with native English speakers in Japan.
Therefore, you need to take a "theoretical lesson" by a Japanese teacher, who has mastered English under the same conditions as you.
However, if the Japanese teacher adopts a teaching method focused on learning through experience, not taking your understanding of Japanese into consideration, or gives you an explanation of English grammar in the form of a lecture, you can't expect to get any results.
The Japanese teacher's lesson should focus on exercises on "Conversational English Theory" (refer to the upper right) of how Japanese people, non-native speakers of English, should speak English.
No matter how hard you study English, if you don't learn a theory of how to construct sentences, you won't be successful. So, at NCC, simultaneous interpreters teach you "Interpretation Theory" (a part of "Conversational English Theory"), with enthusiasm and energy.
"Conversational English Grammar" and "Interpretation Theory" ("Conversational English Theory")
A theory developed for rapid oral composition.
Beginners at NCC learn "Conversational English Grammar", which has been developed by rearranging and simplifying complex grammar for conversational English, while intermediate and advanced students learn "(Simultaneous) Interpretation Theory", which enables them to develop advanced oral composition skills.
First-rate native English teachers.
Beginners take conversation lessons from native English teachers. These lessons are based on "theoretical lessons" by Japanese teachers.
Intermediate and advanced students discuss articles from English language newspapers and magazines with native English teachers.
All possible preparations for business situations, and English proficiency tests, such as TOEIC and STEP.
You can take individual extra-curricular instruction according to your needs, including learning English skills directly related to your job and preparing you for TOEIC, TOEFL, STEP, and other exams.
Rigorous instruction but step-by-step teaching with care and individual attention.
Each class, full of enthusiasm and energy, lasts for more than 3 hours. Students learn "Conversational English Theory" by doing exercises in rapid oral composition.
Long before class starts, students come to the classroom and study in preparation for a homework check done at the beginning of each class. Everyone looks very serious before this severe check.
A Japanese teacher (simultaneous interpreter) asks students one question after another and students have to answer the question in English immediately.
They are all desperate to keep up with the class and have no time to catch their breath.
The teacher's powerful and fast way of speaking brings about much tension in students.
Exercises in rapid oral composition are necessary to communicate fluently and freely in English with native speakers.
As the teacher's voice saying, "This is the "Conversational English Theory" for professionals" echoes through the classroom, students immediately write it down and read it aloud to hammer it into their heads.
I was overwhelmed by the great enthusiasm of this school's students and teachers.
There is always a rush of applicants for limited enrollment.
Hurry and make a reservation for "entrance counseling sessions and free trial lessons" as soon as possible.
"Short-term complete goal-achievement" is guaranteed to all levels of students, from complete beginners to specialists, such as interpreters and translators.
It's very hard to learn English and conversational English.
In order to succeed in English proficiency tests such as TOIEC, TOEFL, and STEP, you have to make earnest efforts to improve your general English ability.
So, this school accepts applications only from serious students.
You can take individual supplementary lessons for free, for as long as it takes to achieve the lesson goal.
Also, you can take the same course again for free, if you are not satisfied with what you have learned as a result of taking the course.
This school has been producing a lot of professionals for the past thirty years.
It has no sales staff, and is operated only by teachers, under the "education-first policy."
NCC provides advanced learners with "specialist-level achievement courses", and complete beginners with "six-month daily conversation mastery courses."
