JHS Courses

Junior High School Courses

One of the main changes to the English education system in 2020, lead by the Ministry of Education, is the change of the system to the University entrance exam. TOEFL and TEAP scores will be used to check not only reading and listening skills (input skills), but also speaking and writing skills (output skills).

The Ministry of Education revealed their English education revolutionary plan which corresponds to globalism. In the plan the goal for JHS (Junior High School) English classes is to teach the classes all in English. The old system where you can get good scores simply by memorizing words and grammar is now changing.

Let’s prepare for the new generation study program by increasing listening skills for understanding lessons and speaking skills for speeches in class!

Native Teacher EVERY Lesson
For the conversation course you can get the same experienced native English teacher for every lesson of the year! Canadian teacher Nam has over 10 years of teaching experience and a Cambridge CELTA certificate.1
Grammar Lesson
For JHS students, we can give them the extra assistance in grammar comprehension they need to stay ahead of their class in school. We will support kids to improve their high scores on their school evaluations.
English Library
The studying way called “Tadoku” has now attracted many people. Our library has over 200 English books of all levels to choose from. Please try reading as many books in English as you can.
Parent Meetings/Observations
We’ll hold individual parent meetings to discuss your kids’ performance and answer any of your questions. Parent observation days allow you to observe how your kids are doing in class.
Hands on Experience
Even for JHS kids, hands on experience is the best way to learn English. Cooking lessons or homestay experiences using language kids have learned help them to gain confidence through practical experience.2
Make-Up Lessons
We understand that children get sick or there are circumstances when they cannot attend class. We provide make-up lessons for such situations at no extra cost to you!3
Mama Papa Events
We care about parents, too! We will hold evening social events for parents to socialize in English. Let’s enjoy using English together! These will be held independently from the JHS Course.

1 In the event where the native teacher cannot teach (e.g. due to sickness), a bilingual Japanese teacher will substitute for the lesson.
2 Activities are subject to change.
3 Terms and conditions apply.


Teaching Materials and Goals

In Elementary School, the English curriculum only focuses on speaking and listening using simple English, so most students experience reading and writing English, as well as learning English grammar, for the first time in JHS. This can be overwhelming for students, where English often becomes a subject disliked by many.

To help JHS students, we have 2 courses available. We have a Conversation Course, led by Canadian teacher Nam, which will focus on speaking and listening using language acquired from Everybody Up. In addition, we will also use Oxford Phonics World to help teach phonics skills for reading, writing and pronunciation skills. We also have a Grammar Course, led by Japanese teacher Kumiko, which will focus on reading and writing using a grammar workbook, Work English, alongside with the current JHS textbook used in public schools.

Our goal is to help to build confidence in all 4 skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) for students with what they are learning in school in order for them to appreciate and enjoy using English!
