We want students to enjoy their language learning experience and to feel comfortable expressing themselves without the fear of making mistakes. Here at Saturday School, we also have the added bonus of having a department consisting of teachers from various countries giving your child a great opportunity to experience an international environment...

Advanced Level
The current English course we offer caters to high level English speaking students who may have lived overseas, have English speaking parents, or have attended international pre-schools in Japan. A they can already speak English very well or fluently, it is important to work on developing their literacy skills.  For this reason, we use the highly successful Houghton Mifflin Reading series for all advanced classes throughout the grades. This course was designed for native speakers in North America and provides a comprehensive curriculum using a reading text as its base with ample opportunity for writing and discussion.
