English as Second Language & EIKEN 

 

Students attending Sunshine Kids Academy are fully immersed in an environment where English is the spoken language; a full-time enrolled student receives 20 hours per week of English learning. In addition to speaking and reading, our classes also carry out activities aimed at improving students' writing skills. For students who plan to take official proficiency tests, we offer classes specifically designed to prepare students for EIKEN.

Our lessons, also available for Eiken, focus on grammar, pronunciation, and reading comprehension. We support students wishing to improve English proficiency or retain their level.
