What to do Mon-Fri
When the number of students is one or two, the class discusses articles from newspapers. We especially use the PARAPHRASING technique. When three or four are present, the ETA (Education Through Acting) system will be applied as below. (Click here to know about the whole process applicable for more than eight weeks.)
MON-TUE Choosing a themeEach participant presents a theme and plot of a movie or novel they already saw or read. They will discuss the various subjects that each presneted, and then choose only one theme that everybody considers the most important.
WED-THU Creating a plotEach student creates a story to express the chosen subject. Through continuous discussion and modification of stories that everybody presented, a new story will be created. The story must be well structured with foreshadows, impacts, reveals and twists.
FRIDAY Writing linesYou will create lines through speaking not as yourself, but as the role you will play in the script. This conversation will be modified and managed to be the lines of your play script.
Throughout the process, your director-teacher will guide you to speak continuously and correctly, especially at a high level.
IF YOU WANT TO GET A “DECENT” JOB SUITABLE FOR YOUR PROFESSIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND, YOUR SPEAKING MUST BE BEYOND A CERTAIN LEVEL.
The strengths of ETA system
1 All of our teachers are native speakers and theatre experts.
Our English teachers live in either the US or the Philippines, our Korean teachers in Korea and our Chinese teachers in China. They are either actors or stage directors who can direct you to speak correctly. With our native theatre experts-teachers, we focus on strengthening speaking ability. Speaking is something that can’t be thought or learned. You have to compose sentences by yourself and speak them.
2 Correction through 1:4
Each student can get corrections when needed because our teacher-student ratio is 1:4. Getting corrections in foreign language education is indispensable, and it should be done by native speakers. Without corrections, it’s like sailing through a reef-filled night sea without any beacon.
3 More effective than 1:1
A 1:1 teaching method is not that effective in conversation classes because you cannot learn how to speak. You should speak by yourself. Conversation can be done by making it a habit. Lets’ say that you face your private teacher. What kind of subject you will talk about? You don’t have anything to talk about in-depth because you don’t share anything in common. Your teacher can’t teach you how you speak. However, our system asks you to create a new story. You have to invent a story and to invent it, you should be fully immersed in your thoughts. Once you’ve created a story, you will talk about it and listen to others talk about it, and then you will add a new story or modify it. This will make speaking your target language your habit. This process is much more effective than 1:1. An appropriate number of attendees for this kind of process may be around five because the burden will increase when the number is too small.
4 This is real Training to speak Korean
Our Korean language practice classes run for 50 minutes a day from Monday through Friday. At least, this much practice is needed to speak a language fluently. A native speaker class of 20 or 30 minutes a day, one or two hours a week. This doesn’t add up to what you’re trying to do. That doesn’t make you progress at all. It just allows you to waste time and money. Never, can a language be mastered by that simple speaking. You must make speaking the language your habit. And think, how much time you need to make a habit. Don’t waste your time and money on those classes.
Our teachers don’t teach you. It is the students themselves who have to think and think again to engage in discussion with other students in their class. Thinking-speaking-listening-thinking-speaking. This is the process of speaking for students. By thinking, the scope of thoughts will be widened or moved from one situation to another. Students repeat this process. It is not pivoting on itself but it’s like a wave that’s spreading. This process can give students improvements in speaking fluency.
6 No limit
In many language classes, they use scene studies. For example, today, let’s say we are going to a bank. Imagine and describe what you would do there. Students think a little and talk about what they can do in a bank. This method looks effective. Our system looks similar to this. However, our imagination and description are not limited to just today, this bank and this time. We develop. Let’s see how we use this situation of a bank. What we do is principally to create a story. As we usually do in a bank, we add more stories. For example, Mr. A goes to a bank to have funds for his business. When he begins talking, he recognizes the bank teller as his first love. 30 years ago, they could not be engaged because of, I don’t know, some reasons even though they loved so much. However, they could not continue speaking in the bank. So, later they meet again in a restaurant. What they can speak about and after what kind of story you can add. This is basically a development of a story. A story was not given, but it is students who should create one and write the lines. If the time is not enough today, you can continue for tomorrow, and the next day, etc. This is our method. What kind of story can be created? How much they can be TRAINED? Speak Korean fluently through our TRAINING!
The core of our method is that students don’t care about the language. They just think and speak. Of course, the teachers guide and correct their students. Studying a foreign language, isn’t it just annoying sometimes? Instead, we create a new life (character) in the target language, and they just live this character’s life. Doesn’t this sound like fun?
8 Being an artist
There is no REAL teacher and no REAL student in our classes. They are all artists. The teacher becomes a director and students become authors of new lives and play them. When you are a student, you are supposed to lean on others, but with us, you stand by yourself.
9 You can even earn money
In all Korean language practice classes, students create new stories. If somebody is interested in any of the stories created in our classes, they can buy them and use them. In this case, all attendees of the class that created it can have a dividend.
How much you should pay? Just $45 USD. Lets’ compare this to 1:1 online English classes in Korea. For a class lasting for 25 minutes a day, Monday through Friday, you pay $30 a week. Just for 25 minutes a day! Our system is much more affordable, innovative and effective.
