Experience our latest curriculum of English studies.
It is well known that we retain things better and longer when we are exposed to it as a child.
Our school offers classes in English in an environment with talented teachers.
From ages 2-3, children start their English lessons musically and visually. They start writing practice at age 2 with lines and dots. They move onto the alphabet with letters and words. They write their own name and a few words by the time they reach age 3.
By the time they reach Kinder class, students understand a teacher's instructions and are able to begin expressing themselves in English. In Kinder class, they advance to more complicated phonic rules, reading, and writing.
We aim for children to reach the same academic level as Grade 3 American/British children by the time they are 6 years old. Students are able to take the Eiken and TOEFL Junior tests.
We encourage students to read books often and use dictionaries and encyclopedia when they face words they do not know. We offer children the experience of Right-brain training, World history, Science, Math, Speed reading, Music, Cooking, Dance and more in a completely english environment which makes us unique and sets us apart from other schools.

Chinese classes are available from Nursery onwards at our Osaka school. There are 4 lessons a week for regular students and twice a month for Saturday students. Teachers not only teach class but are available at the school to assist students and create a more immersive enviornment. When students move on to Kinder, they start to learn how to read and write in Chinese. Students can use basic expressions in Chinese by the time they graduate. We provide continued studies for elementary school students after they graduate. We are planning to celebrate holidays from the Chinese calendar to help students learn language through culture. We hope our graduates keep their passions ito learn Chinese and become helpful to society in the future.
