About Kids Duo

Kids Duo represents a fresh new approach to the language learning process, focusing on creating a solid foundation of enthusiasm and self-confidence in speaking via interactive games and activities. Our motto is “Play in English, Learn in English,” and with this mentality in mind we strive to create a fun, safe, and comfortable environment in which our students learn usable, real life English – often without even realizing it.

The concept of Kids Duo based on providing a safe and secure afterschool English environment, where children can acquire the English skills they will inevitably need as a part of a global community in the future. We nurture and develop a strong sense of motivation and confidence via progressively achieving small goals, ultimately improving their academic and critical thinking skills.

Kids Duo is a fully immersive English environment at its core, and organizes classes of mixed skill levels and age groups. The environment we create helps foster a strong sense of communication between those of varying backgrounds, perspectives, and abilities.

Kids Duo has both Native and Bilingual Instructors to teach children the most venerable parts of both English-speaking countries’ cultures as well as Japan’s. Through this experience, we aim for children to cultivate individual personalities and have good moral values. Instructors will not only teach English, but also Social Development; instilling valuable life lessons in their students by putting good morals and manners at the heart of all lessons at Kids Duo.

Kids Duo has some selective programs. Children can choose what program they desire. This selectable system motivates the children to participate in the class more because they will enjoy the experience they want. We achieve this through all instructors' ability to create a comfortable, fun, and positive atmosphere.

While Kids Duo has a set curriculum, teachers are actively encouraged to grow and expand on these foundations to create truly unique and personalized lessons; allowing ample creative freedom to inject passion and enthusiasm into their class. No one day is the same at Kids Duo, and activities cover a broad variety of subjects including Music & Dance, Science, Social Studies, and Arts & Crafts - all of which are conducted in English, allowing students to be exposed to a plethora of unique and valuable English vocabulary. Our goal is for Japanese children to be confident in the use of not only their native tongue but also in English.
