Q: Does your school have an English class?

A: Yes, one a week for 5 or 6 grades.

Q: Do you agree to teach English in elementary school?

Q: Do you have any difficulties because of introducing English in elementary school?

A: Yes a lot, we already have many subjects which we have to study and teach. We don’t have much time to prepare for new subjects. Now, ALT prepares for the English class but since they don’t have the teaching license, the quality of English education might be limited.
