Teaching English at Elementary Department of Special Needs Education Schools for the Deaf
Foreign Language Activity is supposed to be carried out at the fifth and sixth grades from 2011. Questionnaire survey was done to get information about present situation of Foreign Language Activity at 96 special needs education schools for the deaf in Japan. 66% of respondents answered that they have started some programs related to these activities. More than half of the instructors are classroom teachers. Some schools reported their successful experiences using the unique materials. More examples should be collected and the resources should be shared with teachers not only at special schools but also at local schools who have pupils with hearing impairment in their classes.
