ACQUIRING THE LANGUAGE SKILLS OF A WORLD CITIZEN

At Kobe College Senior High School, students continue to improve the basic language skills they learned in junior high school, with the aim of becoming individuals who can be outstanding world citizens in the future. The curriculum consists of 5 to 6 hours of English classes per week, with a Japanese teacher who teaches grammar, high-level reading comprehesion, and translation techniques in Japanese, and a native speaker who teaches oral and essay-writing skills in English. Oral classes cover much more than everyday conversation since they incorporate activities such as speeches, discussions, debates, group projects, and presentations. In addition to English, students can also take French and German as elective courses. The language skills acquired after 6 years of this effective curriculum will help our graduates in any field they pursue.

CURRICULA WHICH CAN BE SELECTED FREELY

What is more, the senior high school curriculum offers a wide range of choices, setting a high value on the individuality and independence of students. Students can select courses according to the career they want to pursue, and numerous special curriculums not based on textbooks are also available to suit individual interests.
