You will get your own desk to prepare for lessons, and take a break between classes. We also offer you free beverages such as tea.
You will get a manual and a schedule to follow as a basic outline of the lessons, but you will also have the chance to bring in own ideas.
Our team is small but very friendly and we have lots of students that are highly motivated and focused as our school is a mixture of juku style and eikaiwa.
We teach children as well as adults in classes of max. 8 students. Our students are highly committed to English studies and passing Eiken tests and therefore are very diligent. The atmosphere in regular classes is usually quiet and focused but we also offer additional lessons where mainly English games are played.
The youngest are 5 years of age but entered our school through a screening test, so they are able to study together with older children.
Our classes are separated by skill level, not age. Each class has regular tests that need to be passed in order to proceed to the next level the following school year.
