Below are the features of the Department of English Language Teaching (ELT)

Small class sizes

Only about ten students are at the Department of ELT each year, which is an ideal learning condition, giving students more opportunities to learn closely from the instructors and classmates. Because of a small class size, the ELT majors are connected strongly with each other, and they support and stimulate each other more compared to other majors.

Volunteer works

The students in the Department of ELT participate in various extramural activities as volunteers. With or without the mediation by the board of education in Mito city, a number of public schools request ELT majors to participate in classrooms as volunteer teaching assistants. All elementary schools in Mito started “English Activities” in 2004. Since then, ELT majors have been deeply involved in English Activities at local schools.

Studying abroad

Many ELT majors study abroad. Ibaraki University establishes a study-abroad system through partnerships with schools from both English-speaking countries and non-English-speaking countries, and many go to those schools every year to study as part of school courses. ELT majors are enthusiastic about studying abroad.
