Intercom Press publications are written by teachers actively teaching EFL classes here in Japan. Each text has been written to address the needs of the Japanese student, based on each teacher's own personal experience, training, education and desired language objective. In addition, all our publications share one common theme: Get the students to use the language. This is the same whether the desired skill is conversation or composition. The students need the proper environment and the encouragement to use the language, without hesitation or fear. As we all know, we have so little time with the students, that getting the most from them in the short time they are in class is important. Our educational materials, have been tested and proven to work in the classroom, providing satisfaction to the teacher as they encourage student progress in a fun and effective manner.
