Why Code?

Learn about a new "superpower" that isn't being taught in 90% of US schools.

Japan is Catching-up with both Coding and English
Anglais et Programmation au Japon

Japan has finally decided to follow other countries adding coding to the elementary school curriculum, starting in 2020. English education on the other end will start from the third grade of elementary school. And in Junior High School, English will be taught in English.
文部科学省は海外に遅れながらも、2020年より小学校からの プログラミング教育必修化を決定いたしました。そして、中学校で 始めていた英語教育が小学3年生より正式にスタートします。 中学校では、小学校での英語授業が前提となり、英語で 英語の勉強で行われるようになります。
Le Japon a finalement décidé de suivre les autres pays en ajoutant l'enseignement de l'informatique au programme des écoles élémentaires à partir de 2020. L’enseignement de l’anglais quant a lui débutera à partir du CE2. Et au collège, l'anglais sera enseigné en anglais (et non pas en japonais comme c'était le cas jusqu'à présent).

Learn the 「Coding×English」 Skill
Acquerir la Compétence 「Code × Anglais」

Rather than just learning English, students learn Coding in English. This provides a natural way to learn the language. Students will feel a lot more motivated to learn English because they are given a concrete reason to do so. Presenting is also an essential part of our program and our students will regularly present their projects to their parents, peers and "clients". While taking their coding classes, our students will thus also acquire these 4 English skills that are "reading", "writing (programming)", "listening" and "speaking".
京都レッスンは、英語オンリーでプログラミング学習ができる珍しい 教室です。定期的に生徒によるプレゼン(発表会)を行います。 ここでは英語の「読む」「書く(プログラミング)」「聞く」「話す」の 4技能を学び、プログラミングを学びながら英語が自然に身につき、 楽しく効率的に学ぶことができます。
Plutôt que de juste apprendre l'anglais, nos élèves apprennent la programmation en anglais. C'est un moyen d'apprendre la langue naturellement. Les élèves sont ainsi beaucoup plus motivés pour apprendre l'anglais car ils ont une raison concrète de le faire. Savoir presenter est egalement essentiel à nos yeux et nos élèves présentent régulièrement leurs projets à leurs parents, camarades de classe et «clients». Lors de leurs cours de programmation, nos élèves acquierent également ces 4 compétences en anglais: "lire", "écrire (programmer)", "écouter" et "parler".

It's Not Just About Coding
Pas Seulement Programmer

Learning Coding strengthens scientific skills. Students will finally see some practical applications to their STEM classes they can relate and most importantly that they can remember.
They will also acquire essential leadership qualities such as logical and critical thinking, problem solving, autonomous learning ability, diversity (cross-cultural) understanding, creativity, teamwork and communication.
英語でプログラミングを勉強しながら、科学、技術、工学、数学に ついても学びます。プログラミング学習以外にも、論理と批判的思考、 問題解決力、自律的学習能力、多様性(異文化)理解、創造性、創造性、 チームワーク、コミュニケーションといった、本質的なリーダーシップ の資質を生徒に身に付けさせるようにクラスが設計されています。
Apprendre à programmer renforce les compétences scientifiques. Les élèves verront enfin des applications pratiques à leurs cours scientifiques auxquelles ils peuvent se rattacher et surtout se rappeler. Ils acquerront également les compétences essentielles telles que la logique et l'esprit critique, la capacité à aprehender des problèmes complexes, l’autonomie, le respect de la diversité, la créativité, le travail d’équipe et la communication.
