Anchorstar is a boutique strategic consulting firm partnering with large Japanese corporations on a wide range of global projects. Recently, we expanded its services to include Anchorstar English, a communication-based Business English program. This program focuses on developing the communication skills of global business professionals through personalized one-to-one instruction. Our coaches remain on-site throughout the day to provide dedicated support and cater to the evolving needs of clients.

- We believe in continuously refining our program and services
