Lessons only an international school can offer
It is natural for children to pick up language skills from their environment. The all-English classroom setting might as well be overseas. Communicating through activities, children can get a natural feel for English. At the same time, we teach reading and writing as valuable steps in the language learning process.
Child-Centered educational philosophy supervised by David Paul
In order to gain “listening” and “speaking” skills in English, it is important that the student doesn’t “learn” and “remember”, but rather “think” and “express”. At NO BORDERS, we use the “Child Centered Learning” method, where children become the leaders of their own lessons, and by “thinking” and “expressing” in English, are able to experience the reality of using English first-hand, and gain valuable practical English communication skills as well as critical thinking skills.
International Instructors from around the world!
Our teachers are experienced English instructors from overseas. We deliver our education in an all-English environment that will make your children feel like they are on an international exchange trip. There are also Japanese educators ready to help children. Our international and Japanese staff are fully prepared to make the best possible environment for your children.
