5 Highlights of Sankei Online English
1. One-on-one English instruction for 129 Yen per lesson (25 min.), with no material fee
Students could take lessons every day, for a very reasonable fee of 5,000 Yen per month and up. The fees are much more reasonable compared to classroom instructions. Original textbooks are provided free of charge, according to the level and objective of each student.
2. Suitable for busy people with instructions available early in the morning and late at night; reservations accepted until 30 minutes prior to the lessons
Lessons are available starting early in the morning (6 a.m. ~ 10 a.m.) until late at night ( 6 p.m. ~ 1 a.m.)* Lessons can be taken any time to fit the students’ schedule. Free time before work or before bedtime can be utilized for leaning, depending on one’s life style. Last-minute requests can also be accommodated when one’s schedule opens up unexpectedly. Sankei Online English accepts reservations until 30 minutes prior to the lesson. Even people with irregular schedules can be accommodated flexibly.
*Only evening lessons (6 p.m. ~ 1 a.m.) are available during the pre-opening period. Morning lessons will be available after the grand opening.
3. Only the computer, web camera, and headphones are required. Take lessons in the comfort of your own home or anywhere else.
This learning system utilizes free software Skype. With only a computer, web camera, and headphones, one could learn anywhere.
4. Original, personalized lesson plans
When learning English, it is essential to understand one’s own level accurately. It is necessary to know how many hours of learning is required, make realistic plans, and follow through with it. Sankei Online English supports each individual’s plans with its systematic curriculum.
5. Excellent lineup of instructors who have cleared five steps of our screening process
The key to fun and proper English learning is the instructors. Sankei Online English only hires instructors who have gone through five steps of the selection process. The selection criteria include, needless to say, English proficiency checked by native speakers, and in addition, conversation skills such as expressions and pronunciation, and teaching skills. Only those who have passed the strict screening could serve as instructors.
Sankei Human Learning hopes to develop, in addition to English instruction service, various services to contribute to improvement of language proficiency, and in the future, we would like to expand our services to include other languages and other educational contents, with the concept "anytime, anywhere, for reasonable rates."
