Company Profile

Friendly English was started by Matthew Summerton in 2018. The company's goal is to provide reasonably prices eikaiwa lessons with heart and to help people to enjoy the great experience that is studying abroad. It is a small company focusing on a highly personal service for every student.



With this in mind the company aims to provide bespoke classes to help people improve the areas of English they want to work on. We also want to ensure that everyone has a class that is suitable for them.



Studying abroad can be a complicated and scary idea, but it is a great life experience that everyone should have the chance to enjoy. This is why Friendly English provides a highly supportive service to help everyone feel confident and relaxed about their study abroad trip. These services have no cost to the student as the Language schools themselves pay commission to the agent (Friendly English)
