no more hacking up daily papers and then spending hours creating a lesson
around a clipping. ETG does the job for you

Summary of content available through English-To-Go
At English-To-Go, we understand that English is the language of international
communication. To communicate in the global economy it is not enough to
know English alone. It is now essential to have a grasp of the global
community and to understand how other people live and work. Our goal is
to not only teach English, but to provide students and teachers the opportunity
to engage and debate issues globally. Our hope is that with communication
comes the development of mutual respect, understanding and cooperation.

English-To-Go meets the new guidlines set out by the Japanese Education
In the Monbukagakusho (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science
and Technology). '"Course of Study for High School, section 8, Foreign
languages, 3-2-(1)" which was published March 1999 and came into effect
April 2002. it states:
"In order to enhance students' practical English communication ability,
teaching materials should include sufficient language situations and functions.
Such materials should focus on the everyday life of English users, peoples
of the world, and Japanese people, their customs and habits, stories,
geography, history, etc. From these, materials should be selected from
a variety of perspectives to address the students' developmental stage
A) To encourage the understanding of various viewpoints and ideals
and to foster evenhanded judgement and open-mindedness.
B) To deepen students' understanding of the lifestyles and culture
of peoples of the world and Japan while raising their interest in language
and culture and foster a respectful attitude towards them.
C) To deepen international understanding from a broad view and increase
students' awareness of themselves as Japanese living in a global society
while supporting a spirit of international collaboration."
