What is “Spoglish” ?

“Spoglish” strives to improve children’s athletic and English listening abilities simultaneously in an active learning environment.
Through drills and competitive games, children will gain self-confidence and comfort to engage in English coached activities.

Be it basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, rugby or any other sport, children will enjoy participating in many different types of coaching drills which will improve their coordination and athletic abilities. “Spoglish” focuses on the basics of balance, agility, reaction, rhythm, coordination, ball handling, strength and flexibility so the skills taken away can be applied to all sports.

On top of this, being coached in English opens their ears and their minds to a foreign language while not being restricted by a desk and forced to repeat phrases from a text book. It is natural learning.

The program was developed by Motohiro Fujino and Kensuke Sato who have competed inside and outside of Japan as professional athletes and have a wide range of coaching experience from 1-year-olds to professionals.
