Read it LOUD! Japan

ハワイの「読み聞かせ財団」(Read it LOUD! Foundation)はウォーリー・エイモスが提唱する、読み聞かせ活動。両親が子供に毎日最低10分間の本の読み聞かせすることを推進し “読み書きの修得が、幼児のすべての面における発達を促す”…という考えから、幼児期の早期段階における発達を目指す働きかけを行なっています。
既にアメリカでは多くの支持を得ている「Read it LOUD!」ですが、弊社は日本での商標権・運営権を取得。無料体験会を経て、2017年よりウィズダムアカデミーにて英語・日本語、2か国語の読み聞かせ学習プログラム「Read it LOUD!」がスタート。キッズだけでなく、読み手・指導者育成クラスやシニアクラスもスタートしました。

About us

Hale Osugi International unites Japan and the world in various areas such as Media, Education, Food, IT and Internet shopping.

The Japanese government hopes to reach 40million tourists by 2020, the year of Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics. Due to the success of many Japanese athletes and artists, Japan has become a ‘big attraction spot’ among many foreigners. ‘Japanese food’ is now considered as a World Heritage and since then, Japanese ramen has become a big hit worldwide and on the internet, orders for Japan-made knives are rushing in. People worldwide are fascinated by the unique Japanese culture and customs. And Hale Osugi International was established to meet this world’s growing needs of Japan. ‘Hale’ in Hale Osugi International means ‘home’ in Hawaiian. And we begin our mission from the United States where our CEO, Emiko Sugimoto, has built a strong relationship over the years. We have made the basis to unite Japan and the United States in various aspects of our daily lives such as ‘Education’‘Sports’‘Food’‘IT’etc.

Read it LOUD! Japan

Read it LOUD! was created so that all children—from the time that they were born to at least 6 years of age—could have their parents read to them for a minimum of 10 minutes a day.
In the beginning, the aim of Read it LOUD! was to make sure that all children could learn the joys of reading, but now the program includes the goal of helping not only parents, but also all caregivers to form closer bonds with the children in their lives.
Learning to read is one of the first steps in learning for a child, and research has shown that having someone to read to them is a big part of a child’s development.

Read it LOUD! JAPAN doesn’t just focus on reading stories in Japanese, we read stories in both English and Japanese. By switching back and forth between native English and Japanese we help children to experience the magic of story telling and, at the same time, give them exposure to English, helping them to learn effortlessly. Read it LOUD! is an interactive event, which will have children learning all the while having fun.
