Student-Centered Learning at
Our passionate coaches and staff put their all attention to the students’ needs. This way we are able to provide tailored Japanese language programs and help students to achieve their dreams and goals. Our unchanging “Student-Centered” philosophy is at the heart of our school and realized through We’s Contents and We’s Environment.
We will continue to evolve and aim for self-improvement along with you.
Focus on yourself, not the textbook
Traditional Japanese language schools focus only on teaching grammar. To understand grammar and sentence patterns, you will go through the content that has nothing to do with you. If the content is not connected to you, you will soon get bored and demotivated. In addition, most Japanese language schools teach Japanese only in Japanese from the beginning. At we, you will learn Japanese in a way that is relevant to you, and we will also provide you with explanations in English to make your lessons more efficient. Everyone has different needs and preferences for the Japanese language. We are always looking beyond the language to realize each individual’s “customer success.”
Three elements that make “student-centered” a reality
Student-centeredness is more than just a concept. We have been creating “people”, “content” and “platform” to make student-centered lessons a reality and constantly improve quality.
We have Japanese coaches with the mindset and skills to deliver student-centered lessons, “contents” that meet the needs and interests of diverse students, and a convenient “platform”. We are committed always to continue to be the most student-centered language school in the world.
We also check your progress in your own language
Traditional language schools have tendencies to only concentrate on practicing four skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing).
Therefore, often emphasizing the grammar and its patterns. Though mainly emphasizing these factors tends to bore many and fundamentally limits the learning and expression.
At We, progress assessment is also student-centered. We pivot on “facts,” “values,” “opinions,” and “Sentiments” that are relevant to the student as the core of the student’s language. By doing so, the necessary four skills will naturally follow.
To guarantee results, our lessons follow the 3 ‘W’s
Delivering results for every minute of your investment
Our goal at We Languages is to deliver results for every single lesson. To ensure that every minute of your investment results in tangible improvements, all of our lessons are structured around three “W”s. Every lesson begins with the “Warm Up” phase in which we fine-tune our clients’ “emotion”, “mind” and “senses” to Japanese mode and prepare them for improvement. In the next phase, “Work Up”, we help our clients understand and practice in order to ensure progress. In the last phase, “Wrap Up”, we assist our clients to review their achievements so that it leads to increased confidence and motivation. The “WWW Method” is designed to convert every minute of your investment into results.

J-CLUE® (JAPANese Culture & Language Understanding Evaluation)
You cannot be an absolute master of a language if you believe that “a language is just a tool”. Words build the foundation of culture and thoughts and nurture them. Language shapes how we perceive the world. For example, native-born Japanese living in Japan will perceive their thoughts and feelings, in Japanese, fundamentally being shaped by their language. That is why when learning a language, one must consider its culture to get a better understanding, thus being able to express the language better and find a newfound appreciation for it. Aim to learn a new language so that you can also see the world from another perspective.
