  • Atsuko Takase

    She has taught ER and EL to high school and university students over 25 years, and has been teaching elementary school children EL and ER for five years. She has found that an abundance of listening and reading input from EL and ER before learning grammar or translation is highly likely to be effective for elementary school children to improve their English proficiency.
