Welcome to Spring Learning Studios September Update. We just got a new air conditioner installed and it has made a big difference. Thank you to all the students and the parents that survived the unbearable heat in the Spring Lobby. That is now an issue of the past. We are constantly trying to improve Spring to make it the best and most fun English school in Yokohama. A quick heads up that we have placed Spring Bike Parking Passes at the bottom of the stairs for easy parking for you all. Please feel free to use it during the week even if you are not attending a class at Spring and return it to the same spot when you are done.
The Halloween Event will be help on Saturday October 31st from 15:00 to 17:00. At this event, the SLS (Spring Learning Studio) Community will receive a special limited edition gift pack. The details of the event will be announced at the end of the month. It will be an opportunity for everyone to get dressed up. We are hoping to secure an outdoor space along the Tsurumi River with plenty of room for everyone. More on that on the official announcement. Please make time for this, it will be a fun experience. We ask that everyone RSVP before October 15th at [email protected] The email should be titled [Halloween].
Please Note: Reservations for SLS Events will not be done through our usual scheduling with Modern English.
Some of you may have heard that Dan from Spring competed in Professional Downhill Skateboarding for 10 years from 2000-2010. After completing a film that was featured on National Geographic and starting a magazine he ran a skateboarding program for kids in Vancouver called School of Riding. It was 10 years ago but the passion he has to help others has never changed. Last week his son, daughter and him volunteered at the Tsurumi River to show others the joys of longboarding. Although it was just a test lesson, he said it reminded him of the passion he has for teaching skateboarding to the youth. Because of this he will host monthly free lessons at Tsurumi River or at Spring Learning Studio. If the lessons are held indoors, they will be RSVP only and done in small groups of 5. They will be held 2 times on a Sunday with each group having a maximum capacity of 5. The next lesson will be on October 18th from 13:00-14:30 and 1500-16:30. We will build longboards at SLS and teach the importance of safety, wearing helmets and understanding gear. To RSVP, please email [email protected] (not Modern English) to reserve your spot. The email should be titled [Urban Longboard October]. It will be a first come first serve based on who emails us first.
There is a strong correlation between parental involvement when it comes to helping kids learn subject that they are excited about. We do not have a set date yet but in the near future we will be hosting tutorials sessions for parents to better help their children with English. At these sessions, we will have a someone from our Japanese staff assisting in communicating to parents the methodology behind our lessons. Parents will not need to know how to speak English for these sessions. We will go over what was taught recently with an explanation in Japanese as well as prepare them for what is being taught up and coming.
In closing, we want to sincerely thank everyone for their continued support during these past 6 months. We have changed to a better curriculum, structured the school and the systems much more efficiently and we have all had to ride the Covid19 wave. None of which was easy for anyone so we really do appreciate all of our loyal students.
