NOVA is one of the leading English conversation schools in Japan with over 300 branches throughout the country. Most of the branches operated directly by NOVA are in central Japan and Hokkaido. Schools in Northern and Southern Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa are run by affiliated companies.
The NOVA brand delivers high-quality instruction and language services to those who wish to improve their communicative proficiency in foreign languages. Students of a wide range of ages and ability levels, from complete beginner to very advanced, can choose to take small group or private lessons face-to-face in one of the many NOVA school branches throughout Japan, over a video-conferencing system or online from the comfort of their own homes, or a combination.
In addition to conversation skills-based lessons, test preparation courses are offered to students studying for specific English tests such as TOEIC or TOEFL. Also popular is their range of NOVA Plus courses. Some of these courses focus on specific skills (such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.,) and some are geared towards specific purposes (such as business or travel).
