1983, Westgate saw a need for English language education reform in Japan. After
years of English education focused on grammar and reading, university graduates
were arriving unprepared in a workplace that privileges practical speaking
skills. Westgate anticipated the national move towards globalization and
developed education programs with a new focus on conversational English. Our
program is now offered at more than 60 universities and schools in the Greater
Tokyo Area and Nagoya to help university students make a smooth transition into
their professional lives, giving them the tools they need to communicate their
ideas, develop international perspectives, and launch their careers.
