| ABOUT CAFE
“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 stay in our 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 cafe 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 opportunities to communicate in different languages through various services, events, and lessons, but “ENGLISH ONLY CAFE” organizes various activities to relate to 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.
| FEATURES OF CAFE
|Cafe to “Study Abroad”:
The first and only cafe in Japan where you can experience studying abroad.
You can experience studying outside of Japan at the price of just a cup of coffee at our cafe.
|The Best Place to Practice Languages:
The most effective method to improve your language skills is to listen and speak as much as you can.
There are many Japanese who can speak English in the cafe, so you can easily speak Japanese or English.
In addition, we have the opportunity to speak various languages such as Chinese, Korean, and French.
There are many guests from foreign countries in the cafe, many of whom are also capable of speaking in Japanese, so try to step outside of your comfort zone and talk to each other.
To improve your language skills, the courage to speak in front of people is much more important than knowledge.
|Casual Language Environment:
Unlike most language schools, here you can get exposure to natural and casual language skills.
Through conversations with staff and other attendants, you can come in contact with real language skills.
There is no entry fee for anyone, regardless of nationality, gender, or age, and the cost is only for your drinks.
You can enjoy conversations and international relationships at the same price as going to an ordinary cafe.
Of course, you can spend time here in a regular cafe as well.
|Lots of Chances to Talk with Small Groups:
Each table is made up of 3-5 people, there are many opportunities for conversation with a small number of people.
Also, all the participants are in the same position and they all come to speak different languages. So all attendants cooperate and speak languages a lot.
Admission is free and enter and leave freely.
No matter when you enter the cafe on weekdays, you can stay until the end with one drink, so you can feel free to use it as much as you like at a convenient time.
On the other hand, there are many opportunities for conversation, so if you have 30 minutes, it will be effective and enjoyable.
|Strict language policy:
We control the table and time to speak each language and manage the language rules thoroughly.
The rules are strict, so you can have a more serious, fun, and fulfilling language exchange.
You can meet and communicate with our diverse group of costumes from over 100 different countries.
Also by talking with people from all over the world, you can brush up on your communication skills to effectively express your thoughts.
On your first visit to “ENGLISH ONLY CAFE”, you will receive a (Membership) Passport.
You will write your name on it to use as ID, to quite literally gain access to the foreign country that is “ENGLISH ONLY CAFE”.
The passport acts also as a point card, in which you gain a stamp for every event you take part in, and you will get a free drink on your next visit.
