"ENGLISH ONLY CAFE" is a new type of cafe based on the concept of a space where people can come free of charge and get a feeling of studying abroad, in a cafe setting; a "Study Abroad Cafe". This cafe is inspired by cafes in Canada that are known to have a fashionable and cozy atmosphere.
While you are in this cafe, you can experience studying abroad with the price of just a cup of coffee, and create for yourself an opportunity to speak English in your daily-life, as well as experience the Western type café culture and service.
Like ordinary cafes, here at "ENGLISH ONLY CAFE" you can stay freely after ordering a drink. What distinguishes us from other English speaking cafes, is that you can study English for the price of just one drink; no admission/entrance fee is required, and you can stay at the cafe as long as you wish. You can experience studying abroad, and at the same time enjoy the western type cafe environment.
Not only that this cafe provides the opportunities to communicate in different languages through various services, events, and lessons, "ENGLISH ONLY CAFE" organizes various activities to relate with different languages, cultures, and societies. Please utilize "ENGLISH ONLY CAFE" as a place to get in touch with foreign languages and cultures, a place to establish international relationships, and a place to experience studying abroad in the comfort of your own city.
With close relationships with the neighborhood, ENGLISH ONLY CAFE continues to be a place where people can establish international relationships, in the city of Tokyo, more specifically Jimbocho ; the region internationally famous for having streets filled with books, sporting goods, and musical instruments, and as one of Tokyo’s largest college towns.
