1. Implemented English-Only Policy

It is meaningless to go to a language school to study abroad if you do not speak English. Your English skills will improve the most when you think, "How can I say this in English?".

Although the English-Only Policy may seem stringent, an environment where English is the only language spoken, even among students of the same nationality, will greatly improve your English!

3. Advance at the Pace of Each Individual

GC does not generally implement monthly level-up tests, which are common in language schools.

The reason is that GC believes the pace of improvement in speaking varies among individuals. For this reason, GC offers all students the opportunity to improve their speaking skills on a weekly basis.

Since classes are homeroom-based, teachers are able to closely assess and monitor each student's weaknesses and growth rate on a daily basis and students are able to improve their English skills at their own pace without having to worry about losing track of the class.
