Q2: What were the classes like?
The classes placed more emphasis on discussion, essays and presentations rather than homework – except the Japanese class of course!

English based school – Just in Japan with 41% of the school population being Japanese. This is actually the new building (see gallery photos) (back in 2019, but has now expanded), adjacent to Showa’s Woman University, located in Setagaya-ku, two stations away from Shibuya!
