This course offers a very practical approach to learning English effectively. The class will be taught completely in English, however for students who need assistance, Japanese may be used. As the course progresses, the students will be expected to use more and more English.


In the class the weaknesses of each student will be identified and improved on. For 3 hours and 30 minutes each day, Listening, Speaking, Writing, Grammar, and Vocabulary will be practiced in our friendly English immersion environment. Vantage also tries to match up Japanese students with Native English speakers who wish to be language exchange partners. This gives our Japanese students a chance to make friends and practice their English in a casual environment outside of class.
