Today, we are going to talk about “The comparison of the English TV programs for adults and children”. As the objects of a comparison, we chose four programs: “えいごであそぼ” and “セサミストリート” are for children; “トラッド・ジャパン” and “３ヶ月トピック英会話” are for adults. We would like to talk about five things in our presentation. First of all I will introduce each TV programs; next Ayaka will talk about the “Entertainment”; next Keiko will talk about “Output/Input”; then, Risa will talk about “pronunciation”, finally, I would like to conclude our discussion.
Before going to the main topics, I would like to show you the detail of each programs briefly. “えいごであそぼ” is an English education program for preschoolers and younger primary school children; it broadcasts on NHK educational channel.
The program has started since 1990. In 2010, the program marked its 20th anniversary. This program is aired from 8:45 a.m. to 8:55 a.m. weekdays, Monday to Friday. (Now I will show you this movie for a little.) “セサミストリート” is an education program for children produced and directed by an American non-profit TV production office called ‘Children’s Television Workshop’/ ‘Sesame Workshop’.
This program has been popular among more than 140 counties and regions since its debut in 1969 on American TV. “トラッド・ジャパン” is showing the Japanese culture in English for foreigners.
This is a program that people can become to understand the professional English and to speak succinctly and clarity. This program has started since 2009, and you can watch it from 6:00 a.m. to 6:20 a.m. on every Tuesday. (I will show you this program.) “３ヶ月トピック英会話” is a language program aired from 10:00 p.
m. to 10:20 p.m. on every Wednesday on NHK educational channel. This program has 3 months period for each topic. For example, ‘話して聞き取る！ネイティブ発音塾’ and ‘トップインタビューに学ぶ！自分を語る表現術’ etc. From these topics, we chose ‘聴く 読む わかる！英文学の名作場面’ for today’s presentation.
Through these discussions, we could find various inventions of each program. For children, the programs are produced to focus on the purpose to make children have some interests to English. Therefore, the producer especially tries to reinforce its entertainment using songs, games, pictures etc. We found that children imitate the teacher’s pronunciation, sentences, phrases, and words more easily than adults. So, it is important to teach the second language by the interaction of instructors and learners. As a result, the English knowledge that children could acquire by these TV programs will help to open many opportunities for them in the future.
On the other hand, the programs for adults are produced to focus on the purpose of flexible contents. As a result, they can choose the field what they really interested in; they are able to acquire the topic thoroughly. We thought there is interactive effect as well: like conversation with native speakers. The conversations with native speakers speaking in English enable the learners to be generally fluent in speaking English. Basically, it is important to make the learner have interest to English; however, the most important thing is to create programs tailored for each target.
