Under the catch phrase of “TOFL is the place for English,” TOFL Seminar offers high school students English education support beyond that provided by conventional prep schools. It delivers a hybrid, high-level English education that other institutions cannot match. This unique prep school has remained successful amidst the challenges of the declining birthrate and economic depression. TOFL Seminar achieves high success rates in the following areas:


College entrance (Sophia, Keio, and International Christian Universities and Tokyo University of Foreign Studies)


Faculties (Sophia University’s Faculty of Comparative Culture and Waseda University’s Faculty of International Liberal Studies)


Special courses (courses for returnees, AO entry exams, admission application by public recommendation)


Since 2003 we have been active in the following areas:


◆ Person-to-person coaching


◆ Proposals for comprehensive English training for third-year junior high school (ninth grade) students as a new market. The plan encompasses university exam preparation; overseas study preparation; qualifying exams/English language preparation; and overseas English language training

I first took class at TOFL seminar during summer vacation of my senior year. I took the 2-week intensive SAT course, which provides classes based on SAT reading and writing sections. Since SAT was one of the important parts of my admission process, I thought that this course at TOFL Seminar would provide me the right skills. My SAT reading and writing skills have definitely improved in the short 2 -week period. I was able to learn skills to tackle different kinds of questions through the interactive discussions on actual questions.


After the 2-week intensive course, I took extra courses throughout my summer vacation, and after wards. The teachers and staff kindly supported me through the process of admission registrations, checking my personal statements and building schedules. Especially with my personal statements, I was able to receive comments for each essay. This was very helpful, as I was often unsure of the format of the contents. I have put my effort to rewrite and edit my personal statements until I was finally satisfied.


I think that, without entering TOFL Seminar, I would have not been able to be accepted to all of the universities I have applied to. Teachers and staff members of TOFL Seminar are open for counseling and answering questions. Their generous support will certainly help you available. I think that if you work your best towards the goal, you will find success in the future.
