The BCCJ is delighted to welcome Tokyo Global Gateway a new entrepreneur member!
TOKYO GLOBAL GATEWAY is a large-scale education project initiated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education (TBoE), formally contracted a consortium by five private-sector entities, that aims to provide an opportunity for all the students at elementary, junior high and senior high schools in Tokyo and elsewhere in Japan to use English as a communication tool, foster communication with people from different cultures in English and nurture a readiness to survive in a globalized world.
The main users of this facility will range in age from elementary school children to senior high school students. The facility expects to provide visiting students with various programs, including simulated experiences of speaking English in daily life situations overseas in such places as airports and restaurants. The facility will also include programs dealing with science and technology, business, international contribution and international exchange, where students will be able to discuss in English how to work out solutions or new ideas through group work. Throughout these activities, many English instructors (“Specialists”) and teaching assistants (“Agents”) will assist and encourage students to accomplish given tasks. Many public and private corporations, Japanese and international, are expected to join this project as partners or supporters to provide students with practical and hands-on learning.
