We want to create future leaders

Here in Japan, English teaching is a market of more than 800 billion yen. Many adults desire to learn English but are not successful. The main root of this problem lies in the education system, which hasn’t changed for the past 30 years. English education in schools revolves entirely on “teaching to the test”, focusing on grammar and English-to-Japanese translation exercises, which are easy to grade and only prepare children for University entrance exams.
However, companies need someone who can actually use English in real life, not just someone who can score high on standardized tests.
We should not repeat the same mistake we made in the past with the young generations. This is why we strive to expand the children’s opportunities by providing the best English learning solution.

Benefits

Common benefits can include training, opportunities for advancement, location, flexible working hours, health insurance, professional development, etc

  • What is our goal

Our goal is to maximize children’s possibilities.
English education in schools revolves entirely on “teaching to the test,” focusing on grammar and English-to-Japanese translation exercises, which are easy to grade and only prepare children for University entrance exams.
However, companies need someone who can use English in real life, not just someone who can score high on standardized tests.
We would like to fill in the educational gap between actual society and the current educational system (elementary to university). When our students graduate from us, they will have speaking/writing skills to communicate anywhere globally by using the universal language, English.

  • How to make it happen

・All English environment. We are also using our original materials. No Japanese during the lesson.
・We would like students to think about their own idea rather than just listening to the lecture of the teacher. We are providing communicative-style lessons and a curriculum for any of the levels of students. The role of the teacher is not actually teaching but leading students to speak out and pull out their own opinion without any hesitation.
・We have our own original program to make their English life to be their habit. We have a Japanese trainer who is going to track and support their weekly training. Students need to do home training every day. (Writing practice, Online communication lesson, Grammar, and reading), and we encourage them to keep their motivation and have a conversation to resolve their issue to keep their training continuously.
