Adult Classes

Here at Stars English School, we understand that everyone has a different reason to study English, and that everyone is at a different level of ability. We offer group and private lessons at a fair price. Whether it be for business, travel or just a fun hobby, we offer tailored lessons to suit your individual needs. If you are shy or worried about coming alone, why not bring a friend along with you to a group lesson. Group lessons are a little cheaper at just ¥10,000 for four 50 minute lessons. From experience, I know that friends studying together can have more fun, and progress together without the fear of making mistakes.

If you would prefer to come alone, private lessons are ¥12,000. 

Below are a number of examples of adult courses/classes that we offer.You are welcome to bring in your own textbook and/or other materials if you so wish.

Harue and Tomoko.

Harue and Tomoko were both a little nervous when it came to speaking English, so they preferred to be in a group class together. They both enjoyed a more relaxed lesson with no textbook, but plenty of fun and free conversation. Tomoko had business connections in the UK, so I would help her with emails and paperwork. Harue would sometimes volunteer with a charity, and used English on a recent trip to the Phillipines, where she was part of a volunteer group that built a school in a poor region of the country.
