At Home English Learning Resources 英語の自主学習のためのおすすめリソース


Whether it`s tennis, cooking, skateboarding or whatever, most people who are
really good at something get that way because they make a consistent effort to
improve. English is very much the same. There is no secret method to getting
good at English, you just have to work hard. We hope our school is helpful for
you to improve your English, but please don`t limit your learning to just your
time in class. If you really want to improve your English you should think about
making it a daily habit, and with that in mind I thought I would write about some
resources that you can use outside of English class.

Podcasts are a great way to get some free listening practice with native
speakers. Don`t worry if you can`t understand everything on the podcast,
getting input is the idea here. I think even passively listening (while you are
cooking, walking around, etc.) is also really good. Two podcasts that I would
recommend are Stuff You Should Know and This American Life. Both have a
wide range of interesting topics.

SRS system

Another resource I would recommend trying is an SRS system. SRS stands for
spaced repetition system, and these systems show you flashcards and
repetitively quiz you on the items until you have them memorized. I use an SRS
system called WaniKani daily to learn kanji. It`s a really efficient way to learn
and make sure you actually retain the information. There are a few resources
for learning English that use an SRS system, and one that I would recommend
is Memrise. The basic app/website is free, and the free version will cover
everything you need.

スタディギア for Eiken

A lot of our (especially younger) students take the Eiken English proficiency
test. One resource our son Kai uses to prepare for the test is the website スタディギア for Eiken. This website has study materials for Grade 5 through
Grade Pre 1, and is free to use with a coupon you get when signing up for the
Eiken test.

TV shows

If you are looking to get more input via English TV shows and movies, have you
considered Netflix, Hulu or Amazon prime? These are all paid services, but
they are very affordable, and they allow you to watch on multiple devices in
English or Japanese with English or Japanese subtitles.

HuluAmazonプライムはどうでしょう? いずれも有料サービスですが、安価で、マルチデバ

social media

Using social media (by the way, we don`t say “SNS” in English, we say “social
media”) can be a good way to practice your English. In particular, there is one
social media platform designed for second language learners, HelloTalk. A user
of HelloTalk posts a “moment” that can be written text or a voice recording. The
other users who are native speakers of your target language can then correct
what you posted. I think this is good because it allows you to focus on things
that are relevant to your life, but keep in mind that the other users who are
making corrections are just random people on the internet.

Of course, there are lots of good English learning videos on YouTube. Did you
know that our school has a YouTube channel? On our channel we have a
series of short videos looking at some English phrases and giving some tips on
living well. The videos are intended for our adult students, but we have had
quite a few of our younger students say that they have watched them too. And

of course YouTube is a great place to learn and enjoy English songs as well.
The resources in this blog post cover a wide range of ages and English levels.
Hopefully they are helpful for you to make a daily English study habit. And if
you know of other good resources please share them with us and your fellow
