Our Lesson Focus

Build Your Core Skills

Based on our principle that a student must spend approximately 2,000 hours of English learning to acquire fluency, GSA provides various courses and programs to help achieve it. We focus on the 4 core skills: listening, reading, speaking, and writing. We provide a step by step learning path to establish a solid foundation of English for our students.

  • Listening

    Learn the sounds of English from GSA teachers, just as children learn Japanese from their family and friends. Lessons with multinational teachers will expose students to various practical English expressions of native English speakers.

  • Reading

    Learning phonics enables students to build their reading foundation. Through reading, students will deepen their understanding of broader subjects. We teach reading comprehension skills through lessons to enhance critical thinking.

  • Speaking

    Students will learn to express themselves and communicate, relay their opinions, discuss in English, and develop overall English skills that will allow them to expand their communication and global outreach.

  • Writing

    Students will learn the basic three steps of composition writing: drafting, writing, and editing to understand different forms, such as paragraph writing and essay writing in various writing styles.

You will be able to look over when, where and what your child is doing and where he or she experiences the most engagement in terms of learning style.

  • フォロー体制が充実!リアルイベントも決め手になりました

    ★★★★★ (5/5)



    絵本を英語で話読んであげたり、英語の歌を歌ってあげたりしてはいましたが、どれだけ頑張って親が教えても、私たち自身は流暢に会話できるほうではないので、不安でした。でも、Global Step Academy自習する際のレベルにあった教材も用意してもらえるので、有り難かったです。

    カリキュラムやレベル設定もしっかりしていて、英会話だけでなく、年齢が上がるのに合わせてリーディングやライティング面のフォローをしてくれます。 理解度の確認と、学習内容の軌道修正も逐一してもらえるので助かっています。

  • 独自カリキュラムが充実!4技能をバランスよく習得

    ★★★★★ (5/5)

    オンラインレッスンは自宅でリーズナブルにレッスンが受けられるので自分たちのライフスタイルにとても合っていると思いました。 その中でも、カリキュラムがとてもしっかりしていて、英語で色々なことが学べるGSAは魅力的で、実際にレッスンを体験してみて先生のスキルとユニークさに娘もひきつけられていたので、レッスンをスタートさせました。

    学習スケジュールがきちんとしており、独自のカリキュラムがあるのがとても良いです。オンラインでこれだけの独自カリキュラムを備えているところは珍しいと思います。 あとは、講師は全員ネイティブなので、正しい発音を練習できます。
