    Programming languages are all English based. Working in English is the best way to immerse your kid in the CS world.

  • It is said that the limit of naturally learning English as a second language is 12-13 years old. The younger you learn, the more naturally it’s possible to acquire strength.

    Due to globalization, the demand for bilingual individuals (English as second language) is increasing.

  • Textbook Revision

    The English taught in Japanese middle schools has become more difficult with the introduction of more grammar and vocabulary previously taught in high school.
