 Mark's English School is an "at home" privately run English Conversation School, established May 2002 in Mochizuki, Nagano.  Mark is American and has taught English in Japan since 1999.  We work hard to create a fun environment for students of all ages and levels to learn English.  In addition to English language, we also offer opportunities to learn about American culture through various events throughout the year.  We also provide counseling and assistance for students who wish to study abroad.

Adult Classes: For adult students, we have worked hard to create a three level program to accommodate students of all ability levels.  In addition to that, we have done a great deal of research to find textbooks that are best suited for Japanese students to give them speaking confidence and excel as quickly as possible.  There are also classes available for medical specialist.  

 

High School Classes: For high school students we offer a two leveled conversation course to help them improve their communication skills and English ability.

 

Junior High Classes: For junior high school students, we offer English conversation courses broken up by grade.  Each course is designed to follow the textbook used in the surrounding junior high schools to help students improve fluency and understanding.  

 

Toddlers - Elementary School Classes: For toddlers through elementary school students, we have created curriculums that prepare students for advanced English studies.  Through research done at junior high schools, elementary schools and observation of our own children's acquisition of language, we have created a curriculum which mirrors the natural process of learning a native language.

For more in-depth information concerning each of these classes, please see the classes section or contact us any time.
