Smith’s School of English Kawanishi is just one of the many Smith’s English school franchises in Japan. Smith’s School of English seminars are an opportunity for Smith’s English coaches like myself from different parts of Japan to meet in one place. Smith’s founder Mark Smith hosts these seminars. Mark cares a lot about Japan and Smith’s franchisees. At seminars, he updates us on the latest developments in the Smith’s franchise system and the English teaching industry in Japan. We really appreciate all the hard work that goes into preparing these seminars for us. Thank you, Mark!
On Sunday, July 5th, we had a Smith’s seminar in Osaka. At the seminar, Mark talked about the history of Smith’s since its inception. We discussed where we were (as a company), what our purpose was and what our values were. It was interesting to see that Smith’s English coaches basically share the same values. We also did some training in how to teach some of the latest Smith’s curriculum using digital media. It was a great seminar. Thank you again, Mark!
