Research

Since FY2010, we have been researching and presenting about EIC with the cooperation of Prof. Katsuhiko Muto (Toyo Eiwa Jogakuin University and Sophia University Graduate School).

 

We examined the effectiveness of EIC from the perspective of motivation of participants in learning English, by “opportunities of being in the surroundings in cultures of various countries” and “using English without fear of failure” during the camps. We have found that the children’s motivation for English was increased. In addition, as a result of research on changes in participants ‘confidence and interest using self-evaluation called Can-Do, EIC has increased the participants’ confidence in English and has the potential as a language learning environment.
