Little America has a strong interest and background in teaching returnees and bi-national children.
We believe returnee and bi-national children are special not only because they are bilingual but also because they have experienced school and life in two different societies. They are Japanese treasures because of their experiences and wisdom.
Since Japan is an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) society, there are few chances for these special children to maintain their English. Little America, in its own way, would like to help these precious students keep and improve their English through its American curriculum and lessons which cover grammar, phonics, spelling, writing, reading, vocabulary and book report presentations.
