Introduction: General Manager at Pines


1. 留学スクールのスケジューラの自己分析

I have been the Supervisor in CNN since January 2014.  I have had 10 years experience teaching English to foreigners one-on-one and 4 years experience teaching online.  Before being promoted to Supervisor, I was a senior teacher who taught ESL, Business English, TOEIC, TOEFL, and IELTS.  Prior to my teaching job, I had worked in both the private and government sectors and also had a job as an essay and story writer for an English magazine.  My university degree in business management has contributed to great degree in all my job experiences.


校長になる前は、ESL, Business English, TOEIC, TOEFL, IELTSを教える先任のフィリピン人講師でした。


2. 新留学生のレベルテスト・時間割が組まれるまでのこと

schedules of students are made based on several factors:
a. the results of the initial diagnostic test (reading, speaking, listening, and writing) taken by the incoming student
b. the course type which the student enrolled in
c. the student’s age and educational or professional background
Based on the above factors, the specific classes are chosen; the study materials are matched with the student’s skill level, and specific available teachers whose educational/professional background matches the student’s are assigned.


a. 入学して最初に受けていただくテストの結果。(reading, speaking, listening and writing)
b. 留学生様が選ばれたコースを参考にして。
c. 留学生様の年齢、フィリピン人講師の専門分野。


3. 授業・フィリピン講師変更の手続き、申請方法など

As part of CNN’s Standard Operating Procedures, any student is allowed to request for a change of teacher by filling out the appropriate request form which can be acquired anytime from the secretary.  For CNN’s quality control and assurance purposes, students are encouraged to indicate their reasons for changing their teacher.  Based on this information, corrective and pre-emptive steps are taken to prevent possible future dissatisfaction by other students.


CNNの正式な手続きとして、留学生様はいつでも事務員にリクエストフォームという用紙をもらい内容を記入すれば、フィリピン人講師を変更することが可能です。CNNの 雰囲気を向上させるため、留学生様にフィリピン人講師を変更する際、理由を教えていただいております。この先手をうった戦略をもとに、今後の留学生様に不満を抱かせること を防ぎます。

*After each month of study, the students are given level evaluation exam to help them pinpoint their weaknesses in the four macro skills, and determine their level of improvement to better help the students in their studies. With this method, the students can see their development, thus giving them a clear goal in their study.

9. 在学留学生の学習に関する話

Students’ personal account in relation to their study in CNN:
Many of our Japanese students are sent by their companies, and part of our concluding activities for them is the Public Speaking Presentation wherein the students are encouraged to prepare a speech of any topic and be able to present it in front of an audience. 95% of our Japanese students participate in this activity. At most times, the students would contact their former teachers when they return to their work to tell them that this experience had helped them in doing their own English presentations in their companies.


当校にはパブリックスピーキングというアクティビティがあるのですが、自分でトピックを決め、内容を担当のフィリピン人講師と作り上げ、観客の前でプレゼンテーション をするものです。95パーセントの日本人生徒がこのアクティビティに参加しております。スピーチをすると決まった留学生は力を入れてスピーチ作りに取り組み ます。会社から研修生として送られてくる留学生様も多いのですが、日本にご帰国された後、当校のフィリピン人講師にパブリックスピーキングの経験は会社で行う英語のプレ ゼンテーションで多いに役立ったと連絡が来るそうです。
