***Delighted to welcome our newest Entrepreneur member to the BCCJ!***
UK fields is a recently founded language and piano school in Hamamatsucho. The school plans to help companies boost their employees’ language skills ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
A message from UK fields:
“UK fields currently teaches language to local Japanese residents who are looking to improve their English prior to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Adult students can learn English language, piano and singing whilst children from the age of five learn piano and English in one 30 minutes lesson every week.
Although we teach Japanese language to students from the U.S.A, India, Singapore, Ukraine, England, and the Philippines we have yet to break into the corporate world. There are 2,186 international companies located in Minato-ku and 18,420 foreign residents with an equal mix of men and women – greater than the other 23 wards in Tokyo. Our language school based in Hamamatsucho is therefore ideally placed to develop our company to meet the training requirements of companies located in Minato-ku.
Born in November 2014 when its directors Terry and Kaoru decided to move from London, where Kaoru taught Japanese language and piano to English students. Terry decided to end his career in motor racing having spent 10 years travelling around the world as an engineer at race tracks such as Monza and Le Mans, to spend more time in Japan.
Kaoru spent most of her life in Minato-ku teaching piano at the Yamaha music school, moving to London in 2005 to teach Japanese language at Birkbeck college and piano in Wimbledon, so it was logical to return to Minato-ku to start our language and piano school here.
UK fields’ strengths are its great location, low cost base, friendly environment and experienced teachers with a record of attaining high standards. Our eight week survival course based on the J Presence Academy Breakthrough book is ideally suited to Engineers and IT workers who appreciate its clear structure. We can teach the basic social needs in eight one and half hour lessons.
By joining the BCCJ we look forward to using its links with company members to gain advice and knowledge, and I look forward to working with the BCCJ and meeting its members who I hope may become our premier customers in the future.
