Changing Role of the English Course of Study for Secondary School
Center for Extension Programs, Sophia University, Japan
A new Course of Study for Secondary School English education will be fully implemented from April 2021. One of the key improvements of the new version is that it puts more emphasis on learners' practical attainment targets by using "Can-do list", which describes the ability to command the language, than what to be taught by instructors. It is therefore expected that new English education will offer students more autonomy and confidence, and enhance their motivation. The presenter will give an overview of the new version and will also discuss how the role of English Course of Study has been changing.
