ABOUT SKY HIGH

We encourage all students to take a high interest in what the are learning , and we also encourage you to set your own goals for learning.

Our English lessons are very relaxed and we try to create an environment where you can feel comfortable with studying, while still enjoying your learning experience.  In order to achieve motivation and goals related to learning, we have adopted  very well-planned lesson curricula for students for their English level.  We know that you WILL improve your English skills with a bit of hard work and practice.

We also encourage students to try to challenge themselves with the TOEIC test when they feel they are ready to take the challenge.  It is not a requirement, but highly encouraged.  Also, for first-time TOEIC test-takers, we will council you, and make sure you understand the test system and how the test works, so you feel comfortable taking it the first time.

ABOUT OUR CLASSROOM

Our lessons are in an at home environment, so that you can relax and feel comfortable while studying.

Sky High English Language School is a small, one-room classroom located in the center of Okayama city, in the Omotechou district.  We have a comfortable, private environment for you to study at, and will a have no more than six students studying in one lesson (group lesson), so that you can have enough attention from the teacher.  Also note, we do offer semi-private lessons (3 people max.) and private lessons (1 to1) if you prefer to have less people in your study time.

Aside from our chosen textbook curricula, we also have plenty of extra material in the classroom to use in the lessons when needed.  Our classroom is air-conditioned for days that are too hot, or too cold.  We also offer free coffee of tea during the lesson, if you would like.   We are sure that you will feel comfortable studying here.   It’s not just our classroom as the school, but its YOUR classroom too!

ABOUT ME – “B”

My name is Billy, and some people call me simply “B”.  I am the Owner, and at the moment, the head-teacher here at Sky High English Language School.  My lessons are relaxed and very informative.  I will explain everything that you need to know about English and try to make it very easy for you to understand how the language works.

About Me: I am originally from the state of Pennsylvania, located in the Northeastern United States.  I have a Bachelors in Social Science Degree, majoring in History.  I have been living in Japan for the past 9 years, and have considerable experience working as an English instructor, teaching both children and adult students.  I am very busy with my job, but in my free time I enjoy music production, cooking, and traveling to new places.  I look forward to meeting you and helping you improve your English skills.

ABOUT OUR LEVEL SYSTEM

Sky High, we strive to achieve the goals of students.  Sky High is convinced that with a little bit a work and focus, your English ability WILL improve. 


 After our first lesson / interview, we will determine what level we believe would be best for you.  Once we agree on a level suitable for you, we will work with you to progress to the next level. 
After you are placed in their level program, Sky High will, from time to time review your progress and answer any questions or suggestions that you may have concerning your lessons and how far you have come along.

Although it is not a requirement, adult students are strongly encouraged to participate in the TOEIC exam every  year so that you can evaluate how much you have learned, and make further goals for improvement.

Sky High is convinced that with a little bit a work and focus, your English ability WILL improve. 

Below is how we believe students can progress, and the TOEIC goal we would hope you aim for in each level.
