CoEn English Intensive
What can you do in a month?
The truth is ...
You are not going to be a native speaker in just a month.
... you can do this.
With hard work, you will improve, and we help every step of the way.
How does it work?
Do a short writing task to build your accuracy, vocabulary, and usage.
We’ll check your writing and give feedback.
You’ll receive a recording of your writing to practice shadowing.
In class, talk about what you wrote. We help expand your speaking techniques.
So, how committed are you?
Below are the most common questions about our courses. Contact us any time if you have questions and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
This course is for anyone wishing to make a significant change in their English language skills in a short time.
We have worked with people preparing for job interviews, upcoming business trips abroad, entering new companies, and people looking for a challenge between work assignments.
This is primarily a speaking class. Although the writing assignments are short, they will help you develop your accuracy, vocabulary and natural usage. In class, we also focus on a combination of accuracy, pronunciation, usage, and communicative ability.
This course is personalized to your needs. We stay materials light or draw from multiple real-world resources such as the Academic Word List, textbooks, and other sources. You don’t need to buy an expensive textbook.
Topics are typically based on you, and your experience.
Beginner students usually need a little more guidance and structure. We use simple topics to expand your writing skills each week and will do our best to use topics and writing challenges based on your requests and feedback.
We use share space offices in the central Tokyo area. In some cases, we offer classes in client offices and homes depending on location. We can sometimes offer classes online if need be.
The courses described here are the basic program. We will be happy to adjust the program details to meet your needs.
We are certainly willing to be a little flexible considreing work and family scheduleds. As long as the schedule allows, you could take five classes this week, and two the following week. However, you must finish all your lessons in the allotted month. Otherwise, it’s not an intensive course. Some people want to take classes seven days a week. We don’t encourage this. Language retention and study quality drop off sharply when people do this.
Certainly. Learning a language takes time and we want you to retain what you learn.
Discipline = Freedom
Getting better isn’t a hack or a trick or one change you need to make.
Getting better is a campaign. It’s a daily, weekly, hourly fight that does not stop. A fight against weakness, against temptation, of hard wrok, and dedication, of waking up early and going to bed late and grinding it out every second in between. Every. Single. Day.
