The People

Nab Cottageのスタッフ

 

イタリア・北アフリカ・フランスでの英語教師経験を経て、1983年にTimとLizはNab Cottageを設立しました。以来、二人は45か国のべ2500人以上の生徒を教えました。

 

「自信と安心と幸福を感じられる環境が提供されると、学習者はより自然に英語を学ぶことができる」を、常に私どものビジョンとしてまいりました。私どもはこれまで、教育・組織力の発揮・ヒーリング・ボディワーク・コミュニティでの生活などの機会を通し、様々な学びと経験を積んでまいりました。そのすべてを生かしてNab Cottageの授業を展開しております。

 

Nab Cottageの教師陣は、意欲と熱意にあふれ、また、さまざまな英語教授法を有しています。その教授法は、ときとして、美術・芸術・劇・コーチング・メンタリングなどさまざまな手法におよびます。

 

また、音楽家・朗読家・舞踏家など特別な技能をお持ちの地域住民の方をお招きし授業をしていただくこともあります。そのほか、話好きの住民の方をお招きして食事などをしながらNab Cottageの生活についておしゃべりする場合もあります。

 

Nab Cottageには世界中の人が英語を学びにきます。年齢も18歳から80歳までと、さまざまな年齢層の方がいらっしゃいます。

ここ数年の生徒たちの感想の一部を以下にご紹介します
