Why Are Bilingual English Teachers Good?
Until now, have you been learning English from a foreign instructor that only understands English, and have had a bad experience in the classroom? You couldn’t really understand the meaning of what the native teacher was saying when they spoke English. You tried to ask a question in the class without being able to do it well and suddenly the English lesson came to an end before you could ask your question properly.
“I’ve taken the effort to study English, but have so much trouble when learning English. What a waste of time! This always happens to beginners and intermediate level students, doesn’t it?”
If you use a bilingual English teacher in lessons when studying, you do not have to worry about such problems like this any more.
Especially for beginners learning English, there are a variety of benefits as follows in lessons with bilingual English teachers.
1. Ask questions in Japanese when you need to
Sometimes it can be difficult to convey your ideas or ask question to a foreign instructor when you use English only, and this sometimes also causes psychological stress. It is possible to ask questions in Japanese in lessons with a bilingual instructor so you don’t have to worry about finishing a lesson without being able to fully ask your questions anymore.
2. Explanations of grammar & pronunciation
When using bilingual instructors, common grammar mistakes or tricky pronunciation can be taught using easy-to-understand explanations sprinkled with Japanese if necessary. Unlike in the lessons with native instructors that do not understand Japanese.
3. Advice on studying from real experience
Bilingual instructors, when compared to teachers that only speak one language, have experience from learning another language so they can tell you from real experience how they mastered a foreign language.
4. Find out the subtle nuances of English
Bilingual teachers can explain the differences and precautions of subtle nuances in both Japanese and English, using both languages if needed to help explain.
5. Strengthen total English comprehensive skills
To improve your English skills it is good to speak more and also work on your vocabulary, grammar, comprehension and listening skills. As bilingual teachers understand the structure, differences, and sometimes culture of the languages it allows them to offer comprehensive guidance in a wide range of areas compared to English only speaking teachers.
