Full Day English CourseFull Day 8.5 Hours


Students learn to communicate in English!

Our Full Day course is available to children 2 years old to Nencho. Students will spend a full day using English with our foreign teachers and support staff. Classes are held on weekdays from 9:30 to 18:00.

Students will learn basic phrases, expand their personal vocabulary, convey things using their own words, and improve communication skills by spending a full day in an English environment. Children will also complete many writing and phonics exercises while becoming more comfortable with reading and writing English.

This course is also available to students that do not speak Japanese. Recommended for parents that are considering international school or are moving abroad and would like to prepare their children for an all-English environment.

  • Students will be able to communicate in English and have everyday conversations with our foreign teachers.
  • Parents and students that do not speak Japanese and are native English speakers are also welcome!
  • Recommended for parents and guardians that are considering international preschool or elementary school for their children
  • Due to our status as a Ninkagai childcare service, our courses are eligible for government aid

Year-Long Total English Environment

Our schools have a 44 week per year curriculum. The graph below shows the total hours of our English environment that children will participate in, based on their classes per week. For children that are non-native speakers, total time spent in an English environment is used as an indicator for fluency. It is said that learning English requires around 2,000 hours of English experience during childhood.

Focus Week

Our schools will designate certain weeks to be Focus Weeks, in which students will focus on a special activity or theme. Examples of our Focus Weeks include Easter and Halloween events, hygienic events such as Dental and Flu Prevention, Christmas performances, and more.

Students' Choice

Student’s Choice lessons are developed by our teachers based on our students interests and passions, encouraging them to try the things they’ve always wanted to. We strive to give our students a voice and encourage their interests through our student centered lesson plans.

Craft Week

During Craft Week, students will complete a craft alongside their classmates, following a preset theme.

Sing, Dance, Exercise and have fun!

Our classes frequently use videos from Super Simple Learning, a company which originated from Knock Knock English, in order to help students obtain proper English pronunciation and rhythm. Super Simple Learning videos are available on YouTube, so parents may review activities from home with their children after lessons!

* Super Simple Learning split from Knock Knock English in 2009
