PRI – Prince Kids
PRI is a comprehensive cram school for elementary and junior high students. It provides supplementary lessons outside students’ school curriculum to assist with entrance examinations into both junior high and high school. At PRI, we provide English education through oral conversation classes with native English teachers to promote fluency and accuracy. By providing students with plenty of opportunities to practice speaking, we aim to develop their ability to express themselves effectively in conversational situations.
In the PRI division, instructors teach at multiple schools – usually 2-4 schools are assigned to each teacher. With travel time in mind, instructors commute directly to their assigned schools from home. rather than commuting from their home office. Instructors teach up to 6 lessons per day, and normal lessons are between 40-45 minutes long depending on the individual school. Students are generally of primary or junior high school age. Lesson content is made up of textbook-based reading, writing and conversation practice. Instructors prepare for lessons (including lesson planning and teaching material development) and take part in meetings, and training seminars at the Prince Kids Home office.
In PRI division we also provide special event lessons during Halloween, Christmas. During the summer and winter holidays, We host special English seminars revolving around either science or a special theme. In addition to the special lessons we assist our sister divisions ELC, and PEG with one day trips and English Summer Land Camp. At times, schools may ask for assistance from the Instructor. Instructors should do there best to assist the schools as much as possible.
