Our opinion about education in Japan

Overview

Students in Japan have a tougher life than most. The education system is highly competitive, and from Junior High students spend most of their waking hours either at school, juku (a cram school) or ploughing through miles of homework. On top of that, the pressure to acquire English skills is huge, as English is a prerequisite of every university entrance exam, regardless of the student's field of study. Basically, to be successful in Japan, you need English ability. Not only will English ability help young people enter their university of choice, but it will open doors for them in future careers. English will give them a definite advantage in Japan, a country which is rapidly becoming more and more internationalized. ABC Plus' mission is to provide people with the skills they need to have more choice and opportunity in life.

Communication

At ABC Plus, our focus is on achieving quality education through personal and honest communication. This means that a relationship will be built between students and teachers, and between the parents of young students and teachers. As students become used to their teachers, not only do they develop trust, but they also learn far more than just language - they learn about a culture very different from their own. Even little things that the teacher may not think twice about, such as letting the kids jump on a flashcard during a game, are experiences students will not find in Japanese culture. Students can learn a different way of thinking through the values the teacher brings to the classroom.

Communication outside the classroom is essential too. Teachers make time to explain the lesson content and behavior of the students to their parents after each lesson. This also fosters a relationship of trust, and parents appreciate the efforts made by the teachers, even if they themselves cannot understand English! Communication means more than just words - a little effort and a smile really go a long way.
