Amazingly, this year marks the 25th anniversary of Okey Dokey! I wasn’t there when it was established of course - I only started teaching here about 12 years ago. In 1998, the school was in another building on the same street, and the name was slightly different. Through the years, it rose in popularity to become a landmark amid Ainosato’s many educational establishments.

Thank you all so much for your everlasting trust in Okey Dokey English School! Noriko and I are looking forward to continuing to improve the quality of our teaching and service.

Because of the global energy and food supply crisis, the cost of living has sharply increased in the past months. Like many families, Noriko and I are constantly worried about the price of our next gas bill or shopping cart. In this economy, we feel the need to cut down on our expenses.

Although many businesses will have to raise their prices this year, in Okey Dokey, we will try our best to keep the price of the tuitions as low as possible this year as well. Financially speaking, it would be wise for us to increase our prices according to inflation, but it would also go against our philosophy of providing good English education accessible to all.

In order to maintain the quality of our services at a low cost, we have decided to decrease the amount of paper and telephone communication. Amongst other measures, though the printed version of the yearly calendar will only be available on demand, but it will be readily accessible on our website. The monthly student evaluations will be sent directly to the parents via LINE or email. We would also like to ask you to contact us by telephone only in case of emergency. Just send us a LINE message or email instead for any inquiries, and we will get back to you as soon as possible at a later time.

We really appreciate your understanding and cooperation!

After I took my driving license at Shinoro Driving School, there was an announcement on the speaker saying that all students had passed the test. It gave me the idea of putting up a poster at school every time all students passed the Eiken interview. Since we have started doing this a few years ago, we have been able to put it up proudly after every session. I don’t think the poster is some sort of lucky charm, but rather that the students have been preparing more seriously for the interview lately. I don’t know if anyone looks at the poster, but it makes me happy that the average English speaking level is increasing at Okey Dokey.
