School Vision

❛❛Towards the Global 3D ACADEMY❜❜ Our vision is to develop 3D ESL into a global brand. The leader of 3D is a young entrepreneur, with business across Japan, Singapore, and the Philippines. Despite being a successful businessman, he still relentlessly devotes his time to studying. He is currently enrolled in the EMBA program of the University of Chicago Booth, one of the top MBA institutes in the world. Under his leadership, 3D aims to strive towards excellence and to spread our network to every part of the world.

School Mission

❛❛We are all about your future!!❜❜ In 3D, we believe that English is the most important tool to expand students’ horizons and to cultivate their international perspectives. We believe that a good command of English will offer students endless opportunities as the globalization trend continues. Hence, we are devoted to lay down the most solid foundation in your English learning journey towards a better future!

School Practice

❛❛Nothing works better than practice❜❜ The most difficult part of learning English (Or any other language) is that it is not a subject or discipline where you could basically sail through with hard work and memorization. It is all about PRACTICE! To speak English fluently, you have to be able to express your thinking naturally with this language, as if you are speaking your mother tongue. In 3D, we believe that the most effective way of learning English is by immersing yourself in a total English environment. We have developed a range of methods by integrating the daily entertainment and syllabus into your 1:1 class to help to harness your English communication skills.

The best age for mastering a new language is arguably during the childhood period, as it is believed to be the time of our lives where we have the strongest ability to learn and absorb new knowledge without distraction. Therefore, parents nowadays often send their children to go to English classes since young as the globalization wave is unstoppable and English is no doubt the clear lingua franca in this wave. However, in order to master a language, proper environment is very important. If students only learn a few words in the classes but do not know how to apply in the real life situation as there is no proper environment to use that language, it is difficult to expect the kids to really master one language. Yet it is not easy to create a proper environment where the neighborhood are built based on the local languages instead of English.
