広島市中区にある英会話教室 ウィルイングリッシュスクールは「発音からはじめる英会話」。

The name of this school,Will English School,comes from our belief that you need a strong will to succeed in learning English .

Quite often,people will start learning English, but a lack of immediate results can cause them to give up, in this school we want to emphasize that it's very important to be patient. If you have a desire to learn, and you are willing to study at home, as well as in the classroom, then you should progress steadily. As you learn more it will be easier to express yourself in English, but this will not happen overnight.

We want you to learn “Lifelong English” ,a skill that you can use all through your life. If you are motivated about learning English then Will English School is the school for you .

Before starting lessons at Will, all students take a level-check test.
This test includes a listening and reading comprehension test.

The listening section consists of three levels of difficulty, firstly, a slow speed recording which uses basic language, secondly, a normal speed conversation, and finally a recording using more difficult and academical terms.
The reading comprehension section tests grammar use, knowledge of vocabulary and finally a section in which the students are asked to match English words to their English synonyms, and so test the ability to understand English through English.

The results of the test can give the teacher an impression of the students ability and lead to effective lessons from the beginning.

There is a variety of lessons that you can choose .
The most comprehensive lesson is 'REG', which consists of three parts. Firstly, a tape recording of the teachers voice, which the student then brings the home, listens to, records their own voice and submits it for correction. Secondly in a 'REG' lesson the teacher will assign the student an essay title for the student to write at home, after the student submits the essay the teacher will correct it and return it to the student along with their comments on the students essay.
Finally, for the main body of the lesson, beginners and intermediate students study a textbook, and advanced students study a news article.

Other types of lessons are 'VCL', which is the same as 'REG', but without the essay, 'ESY', which is also the same as 'REG' but without the tape recording, 'COM', which is just a text based lesson without tape or essay, and finally 'TALK', which is a lesson using talk cards to discuss topics without using a textbook.

For each type of lesson you have the option of making it private,in which you will be guaranteed a one-to-one lesson with the teacher.

As both 'REG' and 'VCL' use tape recordings it encourages the student to speak the language at home, which is vital in learning English. For most people there are not many chances to use English in everyday life, so listening to, and repeating the teacher's voice is a very important part of improving pronunciation and using words that the student has learned.

In addition, there is a choice of course type, depending on what you want to focus on, 'Conversation' focuses on normal, everyday speech, 'TOEIC' and 'TOEFL' courses focus on preparation for these tests, and tend to include more academic language.

When we are recruiting new teacher we make our decision based on 8 selecction criteria:

  • The candidate must have a positive attitude towards teaching.
  • They should have a good personality, and be friendly and outgoing
  • They must be a native speaker, in some cases applicants will have used English as a second language and may have studied English at a very high level, but this school requires a native speaker.
  • They should be able to speak clear, easily understandable English.
  • They should have a broad range interests and a good standard of general knowledge.
  • We look for someone who can teach and listen, our classes are not lectures, we ask that our teachers encourage the students to speak as much as possible.
  • Before we make our decision, all candidates must write a essay which we evaluate. From this essay we can check their use of English and also get some insight into their personality.
  • The essay from the candidates must be handwritten, and our prospective
    teachers must show good handwriting skill.

We look for a person who uses normal English, as spoken on the streets and in the homes in English speaking countries, we want our students to learn to communicate with normal English speaking people, so we try and teach practical English, which, in our opinion, is more useful than learning academical terms that may not be used commonly.

We like to encourage feedback from both teacher and students, so after every 25 lessons the student will undergo a level check to measure progress, and the teacher will give their opinion on the student's development.

We also want our students to give their views on the lessons, which can be passed on to the teacher in order to improve the teaching method. Similarly, any suggestions about how to improve the schools general operation would be appreciated.

The text books we use are published in America and Britain, and are intended for people learning English through English, without any translation.
For more advanced students, we use a news article chosen and prepared by the teacher.

There are some things to consider when you're deciding which school is right for you. Often when people are shopping around for a new product or service they tend to equate price with quality, however, knowledge is not something that can be bought. English skill comes from hard work, will- power and regular practice, and we believe that our emphasis on constant use of the language is what distinguishes us from other companies.

When you are choosing an English school, first try to judge the quality, and after that consider the tuition fee. Some companies boast that if you study with them you can learn everything you need to know from one book, but the reality is that no one book can teach you everything you need to know. You need many different sources if you want to master English, from TV and books to conversations and classroom lessons.

While it's true that a good environment helps you learn, we believe that there should be focus to the lessons, if you have a relaxed conversation for the length of the lesson it can perhaps increase your familiarity with the words you already know, but there are not so many chances to learn new vocabulary. That's why we always try to have some sort of focus or topic in our lessons. In some classes that will be from news articles or text books, and in talk classes that will come from the talk card topic.

Some English students may feel that news articles tend to use language that is too complicated for everyday life. While it is true that the expressions in newspapers tend to differ from normal conversation this doesn't mean that they don't help you to learn English. If you learned English from normal conversations only, you would be able to talk about everyday things fairly well, for example the weather, your job and so on, but a person who is serious about learning English should be able to understand and express their opinion on a variety of subjects. News articles give you vocabulary that will come up in conversations, as well as teaching you more difficult words and expressions for talking about more advanced topics.

One other approach to learning English is to focus on certain situations, for example buying a ticket in a train station, and learn off all the likely phrases. This approach can be helpful sometimes, but life doesn't have a script, in conversation you cannot predict what will come up.

As well as that, learning situational phrases alone doesn't prepare you for real conversation, which is one of the reasons we ask students to record themselves speaking. By listening to their speech the teacher can identify any problems with pronunciation and correct them in the next class.

Writing essays and getting feedback from the teacher can teach students how to phrase sentences and use vocabulary. Also, because the teacher writes their comments about the essay, the students can learn expressions used by the teacher and use them themselves. We feel this feedback from the teacher is very important because it gives the students a chance to read and learn expressions and language used by a native speaker.

Compared to some other English conversations schools Will English School is small, but because of this students will very often have lessons with only one or two other students.
This means that a student will get much more attention than if they were in a class of 10 or more people. Also, because of the small class sizes the teacher can get to know the students and adapt the lessons to focus on each student's interests.

We feel that our students aim should be to have English as a second language, where you can express and understand anything in English that you can in your first language.

If you have any questions, we will reply within a week. The school is open for classes from Tuesday to Saturday, including national holidays, and we are closed on Sunday and Monday. Students can choose to make a reservation for a fixed time every week or just ring and make a booking for a lesson on a certain day. Our prices are easy to find out, we have clear tuition fee tables and there are no hidden costs.
