Why is it so hard for Japanese people to learn English?
Even after having English classes for so many years in school, why is it that in the whole world only Japanese people are unable to speak English?
We have discovered the reasons, and we have created a solution. The solution is sentence blocks. This approach enables you really to learn and use English.
At Fona School, we naturally teach phonics. More importantly, we have developed materials to teach English based on sentence blocks, which means that everything is easy to understand and apply. Our curriculum ensures your ability to become steadily fluent, step by step.
The Fona language teaching materials are designed to teach the true languages, and to teach them accurately. The Fona School materials and curriculum have been designed and developed specifically for Japanese students, explaining in detail the areas that are difficult for Japanese people to understand and the things that are confusing because of Japanese-English. They are based on educational psychology, with the objective of ensuring the following characteristics:
- Ease of understanding
- Accurate, thorough explanations
- Confirmation of understanding
- Thorough practice
- Application to real life
As a result, the sentence block approach and the Fona School teaching materials greatly benefit people of all skill levels, from beginners to the most advanced. Make good use of the same material for reference throughout your life.
In doing so, you'll discover that these materials are not only for reading, but that they are designed to help you take full possession of the understanding and explanations that they provide. The degree of benefit you get from them just depends on how you use them. Envision yourself speaking English like a native English speaker, watching movies in English without subtitles, traveling to English-speaking countries without a guide or interpreter, and so on. Feel the joy you know will come from those abilities. Use the Fona School materials to study English even just a little each and every day with that vision in your mind and heart, and you will achieve your goals. The Fona School materials are the best materials in the world to help you do that.
These materials are great for anyone who is studying English for the first time, for anyone who has studied English but only in school, for anyone who is able to speak some degree of English, and doesn't want to lose that skill, for anyone who wants to maintain or improve their skills, indeed for anyone at all. A person truly studying English for the first time can learn the basics and principles of the real English language right from the start. Advanced speakers of English who use our materials tell us that their eyes have been opened to the reality of the world of English, and they finally really understand things for the first time in their lives.
Opening People's Eyes
Can you explain the real meanings of "a" and "the" with confidence?
Can you distinguish and use them correctly?
At Fona School, we have developed materials that explain the real meanings of "a" and "the". Our materials explain them so understandably and accurately that everyone from the Basic Knowledge skill level to the Ultimate Conversation skill level is surprised.
We have prepared other materials also to explain understandably and accurately the various details that are so difficult for native Japanese speakers to understand and learn about English. We also provide the opportunities necessary to take possession of what you learn, and to make the transition from learning "English as a foreign language" to learning "English as your own language".
To date, we have been told repeatedly by many people, "You've opened my eyes!"
That pleases us no end. ☺
