Individually-tailored curriculum

The lessons can be held in our school rooms, on your organization’s premises, or at your home.

Experienced professional and enthusiastic native instructors

ICC courses are conducted by professional multilingual native instructors. Upon request, non-native instructors can also be provided. As we are convinced that the success of our schools ultimately depends on the quality and efforts of our personnel, we hire only instructors that are highly educated, motivated, and knowledgeable of the culture and customs of the target country.They are constantly trained and observed to ensure their effectiveness.

Very effective approach and methodology

ICC lessons will generally follow an integrated skills approach. Classes will focus on functional and notional areas, and then work on the language skills required to achieve competence in those areas. These will consist of a mix of structural, lexical and cultural items, including work on question forms, politeness phrases, appropriate intonation, and phrases to attract attention. The instructors will always follow an active learning approach, engaging their students in the target language.

Frequent starts and convenient schedules

New classes can begin anytime at the students’ or organization’s convenience. ICC offers classes seven days a week, all year round, from 7am to 11pm.

Convenient locations

ICC operates now six schools, five in the Tokyo metropolitan area (Ginza, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Machida and Hachioji) and one in Yokohama. All the schools are conveniently located, within a five minute walking distance of the local major train and subway stations.

Affordable costs

ICC offers a great language education and other language services at affordable prices. ICC’s prices are among the most competitive in Japan.

Family, friends, and colleagues discount

Trial lessons and level assessment

Trial lessons and level assessment can be arranged at your convenience, in our school rooms, at your home or on your organization’s premises. In order to know more about our schools and school system, we suggest that you take a trial lesson first. Trial lessons for the major languages in Japan (Japanese, English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Korean) are free of charge. However, there is a charge of \5,000 for every trial lesson, for all other languages. This amount will be deducted from the school fees upon enrollment.

Constant guidance and advice

Our friendly advisers are always at your disposal to answer any questions you might have. After carefully listening to your needs, and after a trial lesson and a proficiency level assessment, they will design for you a program that suits your schedule, exact level, objective, and budget.

Excellent students’ and clients’ feedback.

Our commitment to quality and excellent service, at reasonable rates, is the reason for the very high satisfaction level of our students and clients. To guarantee the success of our language programs, all courses are monitored throughout and are acted upon by our professional staff wherever appropriate. Please listen to what our students and clients say about us:

“ICC was very accommodating and responded to my specific language needs. Unlike other language schools, ICC had a less ridged approach to language instruction and allowed the student to articulate specific language objectives and modify them as appropriate. This, in conjunction with lesson plans that adapted to specific student strengths and weaknesses, enabled me to advance my speaking and listening abilities far beyond expectations. ICC is particularly appropriate for students who are enthusiastic about language learning and are willing to take a proactive role in their language studies.”
