Apart from facilitating conversation coffee parties, the Global Cafe also offers English coaching/classes for individuals, groups, or businesses.
Language Coaches of Global Cafe (by English Lioness League)
Aside from pleasing appearance (hah!^^) Language Coaches of the Global Cafe serve as role models to students in learning English. They
were once learners of the English language and found their way to success. They
experienced the challenges of learning English and were able to turn things around.
Medgyes (1992) stated that “only non-native
teachers can serve as imitable models of the successful learner of English” (p.346).
Let us Help You
English is, indeed, a language. But to be able to effectively use a language, one must be confident enough to speak it. He should be confident enough to express himself clearly without hesitations, and that’s exactly what the Global Cafe's English Coaches turn you into: become communicatively confident in using English.
The Japanese are naturally shy-type individuals and are usually hesitant to express themselves because they are afraid to commit mistakes.
For example, when a gaijin asks “How can I get to the station?” - though the Japanesespeakerunderstandsit,he,ontheotherhandmay not be able to give a verbalanswer. Theyunderstand the phrase but lack confidence in expressing. Now that’s where we step in.
We may use a textbook or any reading material in every session; or depending on the program the student would wish to have.
