School Information

Westgate Japan

In 1983, Masanori Okada responded to the need for English language education reform in Japan. After years devoted to English grammar and reading, university graduates were arriving unprepared in a workplace that privileges practical speaking skills. Already the owner of Suruga Academy and IBEX, Mr. Okada merged the latter with a third company to form Westgate Corporation. Born in Shizuoka, Westgate began to serve the new purpose by initiating English programs focused on communication skills for small businesses, residents, and the public schools of Gotemba. We have since blossomed and provided English language training to more than thirty major Japanese and international corporations. Our business-intensive programs are evolving to satisfy new corporate personnel eager to improve their business and technical English. Intensive research inspired us to design our Extracurricular International Career English Program for Universities, which bridges the gap for college graduates between basic communicative ability and the business English competency that most companies demand. Our program is offered at more than forty campuses of technical universities, liberal arts universities, and junior colleges, located primarily in the Kanto region (also known as the Greater Tokyo Area), with some campuses in Aichi prefecture (mostly in Nagoya).

Est. In 1983 45+ Teachers
