Our mission

Language is the gateway into a global mindset.

We're dedicated to creating an environment where learners from Japan and teachers from all over the globe can share experiences and cultures.

It's about the exchange that happens when people from different worlds come together. The exchange that happens in the school and in the classrooms is what can pull people from vastly different worlds together.

So share your culture, build connections that span borders, and find a home in Japan here at OCE.

How we make a difference

At One Coin English, we aim to impact individual lives and

foster personal growth.

We believe that by influencing even just one student,

we can trigger a positive chain reaction.

Through English teaching, we have found that we can enrich the students' cross-cultural knowledge and global perspective.

We hope the students can engage with a wider range of people, media, and opportunities, and ultimately inspire positive change within themselves and Japan.

Join us in making a difference, making someone's world a little bigger every day!
