About US

Read it LOUD! provides an English lesson program that enhances communication skills such as expressive abilities and proactiveness by reading English picture books in both English and Japanese and engaging in various activities that utilize the five senses.

In 2022, we produced an original bilingual picture book series (10 episodes in total). We offer classes using these picture books, conducting in-person lessons and workshops in Tokyo, as well as online lessons, to reach a wide audience.


We envision creating delightful picture books in collaboration with wonderful artists from around the world. Our goal is to help children learn English naturally while having a great time, fostering the ability to communicate joyfully with anyone.

Would you like to join us in creating these picture books?
