Research & Reports
KUMON Global Network Team Annual Report
This is the report summarizing all the activities of the Global Network Team throughout the year.
Since 2010, we have cooperated from Professor Katsuhiko Muto (Graduate School of Toyo Eiwa University, Graduate School of Sophia University) to carry out research and give presentations about EIC.
We studied the impact of EIC on changes in participants’ motivation in English learning. We learned that participants’ motivation for English improved by “having the opportunity to come into contact with the cultures of various countries” and “trying to use English without worrying about mistakes” during the camp. In addition, as a result of researching changes in participants’ confidence and interest using a self-evaluation form called Can-Do, we realized that EIC helps increase participants’ confidence in English and holds potential as an effective language learning environment.
