Let us help find the right class for you

Children

  • At the beginning of the school year, demonstration lessons are arranged on Saturdays and Sundays for groups of new children to help decide if the school is suitable.
  • Parents talk with Terumi and John about their child's previous English learning experience, before deciding which class is best for them. They may then visit the class to see for themselves.
Adults
  • Adults are offered a free personal assessment interview with John and/or Terumi to help decide their level of ability, future learning needs and goals - before being recommended the most suitable class to join.
All new learners
  • All adults and children may take part in or relax and enjoy at least one class free of charge (at any time of the year) before deciding whether to join the school.
