At DLD we believe that English language skills are a by-product of a passionate engagement in learning about the world.

In other words, while acquiring English skills is an important goal, yet another important goal for our teachers and students is to forge and strengthen a better, more expansive, more enthusiastic connection with global society.

Language is a vehicle for human communication. It is how human beings express ideas, facts, emotions, and humor. It is a living tool that, if it is learned well, gives its user access to the world and the opportunities the world offers.

We are continually searching for effective new ways to teach and for new means to stimulate students’ interest and involvement. A creative atmosphere is essential for both teachers and students. We believe that teachers and students alike should approach language studies with an enjoyment of human interaction and a spirit of adventurous curiosity.

Will you attend a harvest festival or a sumo match? Or will you enjoy a meal with matsutake mushrooms, persimmons, Pacific saury (秋刀魚), or ginkgo nuts (銀杏)? We recommend all of the above!
