I truly feel that my child is really making progress and acquiring English.

After the lesson, my son say "I had a great time talking with everyone in the group!" Through picture books, the teacher draws out not only English but also children's interests. It is attractive that my kid can naturally absorb English without being conscious of "learning English". The picture books are original, so I look forward to it with my child every time.



Our lesson offers plenty of enjoyable activities, allowing your child to make new friends!

In our lessons, we go beyond picture book reading. We incorporate activities like singing, fingerplays, coloring, and games, allowing children to connect words with movement and naturally acquire live English expressions. With small group lessons of up to six students, your child can communicate in English and learn how to express themselves effectively with other students.


I found English picture book readings to be particularly good.

I myself was interested in reading English picture books, so I was looking for a school where my children could develop an interest in them as well. I tried several schools, but I found that Read it LOUD! seemed to be a place where my kids could stay engaged and enjoy themselves, so I decided to enroll them. I appreciate that English is learned here naturally, not just as a formal study. Every session introduces new activities, making it exciting to learn without getting bored.


My daughter always looks forward to group lessons.

My daughter has only recently started taking lessons, but she seems to be having a lot of fun. When I tell her that today is the "English day", she gets excited and exclaims, 'Yay!'. 
The style of learning through enjoyable group activities seems to be a perfect fit for my daughter, and I'm glad I made this choice.
