English for Fun

English for Fun is a SWS special activity-base class for students to practice and to get themselves familiarized with using English in different situations. Students are divided into small sections of 15 – 20 people to optimize language learning and interaction with English native teachers. For 2 hours a week, students will learn and use English via learning activities on different topics. The school hopes that this class will improve students’ confidence in using a foreign language, and that they learn useful language contents outside of the regular classrooms.
