[ENGLISH]
I have learned at GCG about for 2 years.
I took a photography lesson at first, but I changed to the English / Photography course!
I'm still interested in photography, so I asked Goth teacher, and then he gave me a mixed [combination] course!

It's great for me! I can consult with Goth about my lesson, study and create the best lesson for me in GCG.
GCG is the place where I can study what I really want to learn and discover myself.
Goth teacher is very kind, friendly and energetic person!
He does his best in every lesson!!
Goth gave lots of energy to me, and made me Genki when I was depressed many times!
If you are interested in GCG, let's meet Goth!!

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT GCG

AND

REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CHOSE GCG.

 

THE GCG TEACHER

The Teacher's name is Goth Carter. GOTH is an Australian man.

Goth is a University trained, professional teacher [Bachelor of EDUCATION Art].

Goth has been teaching in JAPAN since 1998!!

[Note: GCG has been open in OSAKA JAPAN since 2003!!]

So GOTH'S lessons are VERY GOOD and really help you to IMPROVE YOUR ENGLISH!!

 

NOTE FOR KIDS CLASSES:

Goth's experience includes lots and lots of KIDS' CLASSES - he is great with kids!!

Also, because Goth is a professional ENTERTAINER - Kids LOVE Goth's lessons!.....

[Note: In Australia, GOTH had his own SHOW FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN (Approved by the Department of Education)

which toured throughout NSW Australia for more than 10 years!]

____________________________________

 

WHY LESSONS AT GCG REALLY HELP YOUR ENGLISH

 

THE SAME TEACHER EVERY LESSON

At GCG your teacher is always the SAME PERSON.

This helps your English, because you can build up a friendship and 'communication' with the teacher!

Because you see the same person [teacher] every lesson, you can talk about topics you had previously chatted about,

or ask about continuing themes.

For example: you had a cold last week, so how are you now?

Or: you are going to Fiji next month - who will you travel with? What will you do while in Fiji? etc..

____________________________________

 

REVIEW IS IMPORTANT!!....

 

'A LESSON WITH LOTS OF REVIEW

PRODUCES

A STUDENTS WHO CAN REMEMBER

AND USE NEW WORDS, IDIOMS, etc...'

 

 

The GCG teacher makes an A4 PAGE OF NOTES during EVERY LESSON.

So - the teacher knows what has been studied, what needs to be REVIEWED, etc.

Therefore review of your previous lessons [new words, idioms, topics, etc] will be included in your next [and next next…] lessons.

That is SO IMPORTANT - right!!

english study notes and teacher notes page

Top of photo: student with dictionary and her notes.

Bottom of photo: on clipboard - TEACHER'S A4 page for DETAILED notes for THIS LESSON,

plus, in the ring binder - PREVIOUS LESSON teacher notes for THIS STUDENT.

 

POINT OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GCG AND THE 'OTHER' SCHOOLS

In many OTHER SCHOOLS: 'today's lesson' is taught by 'Sally from Canada'.

However, the next lesson is taught by 'Simon from Australia'. Then 'Helen from Troy', 'Biggles from Britain' etc........

Maybe this is interesting, but it doesn't really help your English!

Unless all those different teachers make detailed notes during each lesson, the NEXT teacher can't do the necessary REVIEW of words, idioms etc taught previously.

Please think about that!

____________________________________

 

A TYPICAL LESSON:

PLEASE NOTE: If you are studying in a PRIVATE lesson, your lessons can be structured exactly to suit the syle and content YOU LIKE!!

Goth is a very 'adaptive' teacher - so he can change each lesson to suit you!!

FOR EXAMPLE: Maybe you arrive at the beginning of the lesson, and are excited about something.

So you want to talk about it for about 40 minutes!

Wow!!

This was not in Goth's lesson plan for today!!

NO PROBLEM!!

Goth would adjust his lesson plan to fit in your (unplanned) 'special focus' chat!

 

english study with frankenstein

Photo: Goth often uses U tube or other internet based services in lessons.

Here Mariko can see on U tube the ORIGINAL 1933 movie FRANKENSTEIN from which 2 very popular quotes are taken

and often used today.

CHALLENGE:

CAN YOU NAME THE 2 QUOTES??

 

[ANSWER: the 2 quotes are: "Its alive!!" and "I've created a monster!"]

____________________________________

 

'A TYPICAL PRIVATE 1 HOUR LESSON'

The first 20 minutes or so would usually be casual greetings and a combination of free talking and teacher led REVIEW

of previous 'target words'/idioms etc. This is the same as when any real 'native speakers' meet and begin a conversation, right!

Then there might be the teacher’s choice targets [idioms, phrases, vocabulary] and also the student’s choices of topics, or special requests,

or English for specific situations/uses, etc].

The last 20 minutes may be spent working with the main class text book.

Or possibly using some special textbook [ex: studying English while watching a movie, or singing Karaoke in English, etc.]

 

HOWEVER - THERE IS NO FIXED PATTERN !

THAT'S WHAT MAKES EACH LESSON at GCG:

 

FUN!

USEFUL!

CREATIVE!

INDIVIDUAL!!

 

PLUS LOTS OF REALLY FUN AND USEFUL WAYS TO STUDY ENGLISH:

Karaoke in English [SINGING in English - can also be for pro singers].

Travel English

Movie watching English

Music listening and discussion in English.

Understanding JOKES in English

etc....

english study with mrs doubt

Photo: Mariko with the Mrs Doubtfire script/text book. She enjoyed watching the movie Mrs Doubtfire!

She was also able to learn LOTS OF NEW IDIOMS AND VOCABULARY.

Plus talking about the movie, which parts she liked, couldn't understand, etc.... it all HELPS HER ENGLISH!!
