NEW: Advanced Hip Hop Genki English

Funky new songs & online games aimed at High School Kids but work just as well in more advanced Junior High Classes!



NEW: Irregular Verbs Song



For JHS first graders the Kids Genki English songs also work great. Especially for the first few lessons in April, What's your name? and How are you? are the best way to set up a fun atmosphere from the start!

4 good tips for good high school lessons are:

Build up a good relationship with the kids,
Go in with a positive attitude
Learn a little about what they're interested in and use these to illustrate the points you are teaching.
(popstars, movies, sports etc.)
Any game can be used with any target language

Try some of the games on this page which all work well in Junior High and many High Schools. As usual, vary, vary, vary and if at first a game flops, try it with a different class.

Don't expect them to magically make your classes as good as Elementary School, but they'll certainly be better than boring grammar lessons!

Phonics

Phonics sounds quite complicated but all it means is that instead of learning the letters as "ay", "bee", "see", the kids learn the sounds the letters make. It's one of the officially recommended teaching methods for JHS, and is very effective, but isn't that widely know amongst Japanese teachers.

But if you want to make a difference with your first years, I'd definitely recommend having a go at doing phonics with them. If you get chance to be in the computer room, check out the online phonics games or for the classroom try the new phonics CD which works really well with first graders!

foxy phonics The new Foxy Phonics Junior High School course is also highly recommended.

It has explanations in Japanese to show the not so enthusiastic teachers and contains over 130 worksheets, themed to the Junior High School textbooks.
