The Academy is dedicated to developing the exciting new teaching medium of "Active English".  Members can learn the skills and teaching methods to safely and effectively create and deliver an Active English course/lesson.  Each month we will explore the activities that allow for a "Systemic Approach" to teaching and the educational business.  There has never been a better time than now to explore the massive potential of Active English as very soon Japan will host three major sporting events :- The 2019 Rugby World Cup, the 2020 Olympic Games ( including surfing for the first time) and the Paralympics.

We will also focus on how to build your own successful English school and develop high performance habits while doing so.  We also take the high performance habits and success secrets of our guests and share and implement them with our Academy members !
