Best Teacher April Dream: Increasing the number of Japanese people who can write and speak their own English.
While the importance of learning English is increasing, Japanese people are facing challenges in their ability to output English. In recent years, developing global human resources has become increasingly important in Japan’s efforts to strengthen its global competitiveness. Last year, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology formulated a policy package called the “World x Learning Plan,” and the importance of the
internationalization of education and Japanese people studying abroad is increasing more than ever. Improving strength is essential (*1). Furthermore, the number of foreign visitors to Japan has increased significantly due to the relaxation of global movement restrictions and the weaker yen. According to the Japan National Tourism
Organization (JNTO), the number of foreign visitors to Japan in February 2024 will be the highest since the coronavirus pandemic, and there will be an increased need for communication with foreigners in Japan, both for work and private purposes. Possible (*2).
However, the current situation is that the English proficiency of Japanese people is declining year by year. According to the “English Proficiency Index,” which is a ranking of English proficiency in countries and regions where English is not the native language, Japan’s ranking in 2023 is 83rd, the lowest on record (*3), and it is ranked 83rd in the four English proficiency tests. Data on certain TOEFL(R) and IELTS test takers also shows that speaking scores are at a lower level than in other countries (*4,*5). There is no doubt that one of the major challenges for Japan to develop in the future is to improve its English proficiency, especially its ability to output.

The best teacher has a learning method centered on output.
*
We, Best Teachers, believe that while many Japanese people have the opportunity to develop input skills of reading and listening in school education, we also train output skills of speaking and writing. There is a lack of opportunities, and in addition, we believe that output skills are difficult to learn independently. In order to change this situation, we are developing and providing a learning method centered on speaking and writing. *
Best teacher’s lessons are writing x speaking
In our lessons, we aim to help students speak English appropriately in their own words in situations where they actually want to use the language, rather than relying on predetermined content such as textbooks. By writing down what you want to express in English and having the text corrected by a foreign instructor, you will learn accurate grammar and more natural expressions. By deepening your understanding through corrections and taking English conversation lessons, you will be able to develop speaking skills that are not limited to just the moment, and you will be able to speak English on your own.

Support to expand your potential in English by preparing for the English 4 skill test
*
At major changes in your life, such as studying abroad, taking university entrance exams, or finding a job, your scores and qualifications on the four English proficiency tests, such as IELTS, TOEFL(R), and Eiken(R), are important for expanding your
possibilities. It can be both a key and a big barrier. We provide learning content that supports these exams, especially in order to help you improve your writing and speaking skills, which are difficult to prepare for through self-study. *
List of English 4 proficiency test preparation courses
Exam formats have undergone significant changes in recent years. TOEFL The iBT(R) test shifted to a new format last August, and some of the questions in the writing section were changed to discussion-based questions (*6). The Eiken (R) question format will be renewed from the first test in 2024, and a new writing summary question will be added, requiring comprehensive English proficiency that can use the four skills in a well-balanced manner depending on the purpose and situation. (*7)
By quickly responding to the latest trends in exams and providing reliable support to help students achieve their target scores and pass, we have received many positive feedback from many students about achieving their goals and passing the exam. We have received the following.
