Clearly the world in which we live is in a state of constant technological progress and our lives reflect these constant evolutionary changes. The Internet enables the global community to be at our fingertips as we network around the world with just a press of a button. At times it is incomprehensible and overwhelming when grasping the speed of the progress being made almost every day. Teaching the youth of today to be the leaders of tomorrow in such a fast paced diverse world is challenging and needs to encourage creativity of the young of today.
The youth of Japan need to be given skills to compete with this ever-changing world. Confidence when communicating innovative ideas to the world is not only essential but also required to survive. Communicating in English is the world of today. Regardless of whatever state the Japanese economy is in at present or may be in the future, an excellent knowledge of the English language is and will be a requisite for Japan.
As the name of our school suggests, young students of English in Japan should be given opportunities to explore NEW careers they can pursue in this exciting AGE of globalization once they can express themselves well in ENGLISH.
Our school recognizes that the younger the student is, the better the brain can adapt to the phonetically differences between Japanese, their mother tongue and English. We cultivate an environment of total immersion in English for babies. We provide very young learners the experience of speaking and singing in English with no fear or barriers as they bounce through our Boot Camp classes. We strive to teach our young students the vital importance of phonics which is THE key to all the required skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing English with confidence.
New Age English School has prided itself with small classes and team-teaching giving our students the personal attention that is so necessary in acquiring English. Our school respects the individual needs of our students, fosters a caring and enjoyable environment and emphasizes the intellectual development of each student. New Age English School strives to help our students grow in confidence in English which will be needed to excel in entering High Schools, then Universities of equally high standards for a secure future.
We endeavor to give our students an environment conducive to success in studying English to make them confident and creative builders of the future of Japan.
