An exciting change is underway in Japan… More and more people are mastering the USE of English. By 2021, Japan’s main university entrance exams will have mandatory speaking and writing sections. We believe Japan will become a country in which almost all citizens can use English.  To achieve that goal, we create innovative self-study materials and educational systems.  We are also forming partnerships with organizations from various fields nationwide to help people use English immediately and pass on a positive image of English communication to the next generation.

Robin lived in Japan from 1998 to 2002 when she and her son, Stephen, ran “Riverside English Conversation School” in Suginami, Tokyo on the historic Kanda River. The books are based on her real experiences with Japanese learners of all ages. Robin began to write books in 1999 at the suggestion of one of her students. Her first book was “The 100 Phrases that all native English speaking children know” – co-authored with her son, Stephen.
