Kent School of English was founded in 1980 and has operated out of Urayasu and the surrounding Tokyo Bay Shore Area for the past 30 years.

Kent’s main focus is to improve the conversational skills of our students, with classes geared toward speaking and listening practice and comprehension. We offer classes to students from children to adults.

Kent has a variety of classes that cover everything from daily English conversation to preparation for working or living overseas, as well as short-term intensive courses, business and exam preparation.

Using textbooks chosen to match student’s level and goals, as well as specially prepared curriculums, Kent is able to meet the needs of individual students to help them reach their English speaking goals.
