English proficiency is essential for global citizens,
with the respect to one’s mother language,
culture and customs, as it is the foundation of one’s self-identity.



Why bilingualism? In the International Baccalaureate, one of the requirements for being internationally-minded is to be able to speak multiple languages. In addition, we believe that growing into a global citizen begins with learning languages, cultures, and customs, all of which help form the basis of one’s identity. It is very important to be able to think and express oneself in one’s mother language in a way that is appropriate for one’s growth, without neglecting the wonderful aspects of Japanese culture and customs. We believe that English language is an additional communication tool and aim to help students acquire the language as a global citizen.

Bilingualism with A-JB

It is believed that 80% of the human brain is formed by the age of 3 and 90% by the age of 6. At A-JB, students are exposed to both English and Japanese during this critical period. In addition to acquiring appropriate Japanese, students also acquire English language skills and cross-cultural understanding through daily routines with a native English teacher. Such exposure to English is crucial, especially during their early years, as they have excellent language absorption skills. Through language education and activities, students are exposed to the culture and customs of various countries, which we hope can be the first step in helping our students develop an international perspective.

Not just to learn English,
but to develop human skills through English in daily life

Immersion Program

The ratio of English to Japanese is approximately 50:50 for students 1-2 years old. English is used 60% of the time for students above 3 years old. We provide bilingual education to ensure effective language acquisition through an immersive environment. In addition to the ability to listen, speak, read, and write in English from an early age, the elimination of psychological barriers against foreign languages and foreign nationals naturally deepens the student’s global perspectives and interest in and understanding of other cultures.

*Immersion education, as the term “immersion” implies, is the practice of teaching English through immersion in the language as a means of learning, rather than by treating the language as a subject.

Jolly Phonics

Jolly Phonics

Synthetic phonics, a method used in schools in more than 100 countries around the world, is a natural way to learn English pronunciation, reading and writing through songs and body movements. The program was developed to stimulate children’s interests and senses in multiple ways, and to build an important foundation for reading and writing English while having fun.
