    Teaching Approach

    One of the key points to teaching English to Japanese is understanding Japanese culture and the Japanese language itself. Many of my staff and I speak Japanese and so we understand how the language is different than English. What also makes our system unique is that we are true educators with teachers educations. We know how to make a curriculum and we've designed one ourselves. Many other Eikaiwas in Niigata don't even provide training for their teachers. In our case, we have more than just training. We have years of teaching experience both in Japan and our home countries (the U.S. and Canada). In terms of teacher quality and services, we are the Number 1 Eikaiwa in Niigata. Our students speak English. Parents are surprised by how well they learn, speak, and read English. In the case of our local competition, parents that have quit and joined our school instead complained of their old school saying their kids didn't seem to learn much of anything. Real teachers and a real curriculum make a difference. We are passionate about our teaching beyond comparison. As one of my competitors puts it, our school is the one everyone is trying to copy. Another says, our school is the standard by which others are judged. We teach children as well as adults.

    Program Description

    Unlike many of the start up English schools in Niigata, my staff and I have a proven curriculum. We also have 19 years of history in Niigata making us one of the oldest and most successful Eikaiwa's in Niigata. In addition, our top teachers are Certified teachers. We are career teachers not just foreigners teaching English.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    We teach from Morning to Night Monday through Saturday. Sunday classes are possible if requested.

    Students for most classes pay monthly. We have no contracts. We offer super flexibility.

    Unlike most of the "English teachers" in Niigata. My co-workers and I are REAL teachers. We are teachers in our home countries. My co-workers and I have teaching experience prior to coming to Japan.

    We also employ much better quality staff. Our teachers are often bi-lingual or tri-lingual and thereby we are able to teach more than just English. We also teach Spanish as well. We also have 2 Spanish native teachers on staff. We are located in 3 locations in Niigata (Shinanomachi, Kobari, and Kameda).

    We also have several parties throughout the year (3 major adult parties and 3 major kids parties). Our competition, usually doesn't because the truth is parties are expensive to do. But, from my point of view, our parties are a natural part of being the best eikaiwa in Niigata. One other point, we were the first Eikaiwa in Niigata to do the parties we do. Others have poorly tried to copy us.

    It helps that I'm a workaholic. I love teaching and everything that goes with it.

    Cost of Lessons

    Lesson costs depend on our program.
    We offer make-up classes for many situations.
    We also offer a very cheap group class for only 2,000 yen a month.
    All of our students are able to get more English classes for their money than at other schools because we are open more times a year than our competition. On average students studying at other schools will get 2 months less of class time. We give more lessons for the better price PLUS we offer make-up lessons (furikae).
