Learning English in Style

Language schools plan to begin offering classes at the Roppongi Hills business and entertainment complex, central Tokyo's newest attraction. They will target employees of foreign-affiliated companies in the Roppongi district as well as local residents keen on learning foreign languages. The schools hope the students will choose to study for the long term.

Berlitz will offer early bird English lessons from next month, using the time before offices open in the morning. The classes are aimed at enabling students to clearly communicate their opinions in English in work and informal situations. There will also be a course for learning English through current topics, such as political and economic issues.

The classes are intended for people with a certain level of English proficiency, including the ability to conduct everyday conversations. Each class will be limited to 10 students and last an hour. A course of one class per week for a total of 15 sessions will cost ¥63,000.

Nichibei Kaiwa Gakuin will start an MBA introduction course in November for people who want to improve their careers using English. The course will enable students to acquire basic knowledge necessary for corporate management - including economics, management strategy and financial affairs - in English. It is intended for people planning to study abroad to acquire a Master of Business Administration degree. The course will consist of 10 sessions in four months and admit 12 people. Tuition will cost ¥250,000.

All the language courses will be held at Academyhills on the 49th floor of Roppongi Hills Mori Tower.
