Extra information

A typical day

No two days are exactly the same, and each shift brings a different mix of lessons and students. A typical lesson schedule will be made up of regular adult conversation lessons (group and one-on-one), and possibly one or more NOVA Junior lessons (group and one-on-one) and/or one or more Voice lessons (designated days and times only).

Each lesson is forty minutes long, with a ten minute interval between classes. The interval includes time for record-keeping, lesson selection, a short break and a chance to interact with students and visitors in a more informal context. Many branches include a lounge where students can relax and chat with instructors and other students before and after their lessons.

Following the successful completion of additional training, a lesson schedule may also include test preparation lessons for students taking tests such as TOEIC, TOEFL and Eiken, as well as special lessons focusing on specific language skills such as grammar or vocabulary and specific purposes, such as Business or Travel.
