Let's cook in English
Children's Cooking Class Special Class. Fun cooking while learning English! Children who don't understand English can also work with ease as we carefully instruct in a mixture of Japanese and English. The most important thing in English education is to learn English naturally while having fun. By learning while cooking, you can improve both "cooking" and "English" skills.
