Here at F2L, it’s not just about language learning,
but about building the foundations for a comfortable life in Japan.
Through our language and culture programs, international businesspeople
can become not just valued employees, but indispensable assets.

Did you know that the average dropout rate for on-demand e-learning programs is 85%? That means only 15% of students continue to the very end.

F2L is different. We don’t offer pre-recorded video lessons. For us, the interactive element is far too important. By having live, online lessons, students can ask questions if they don’t understand, and our skilled instructors can provide feedback and motivation, giving the student an active part in their own learning. This type of active learning not only encourages the student to keep going, but also introduces a much more enjoyable social aspect to the course.
