Our name

ECC stands for "Education through Communication for the Community." This name expresses our belief that the process of learning is not an end in itself, but part of a broader effort to establish and deepen understanding and community ties among and between people around the world.

The ECC Group

ECC was established in 1962. The ECC Group consists of a number of divisions specializing in educational services. We have always focused equal attention on student achievement and corporate growth, and have always felt that providing our students with worthwhile and well-rounded educational opportunities is good business. We therefore like to think of our students as 'customers,' as this term reflects our commitment to their complete satisfaction. This model has allowed ECC to build a customer/student base of close to 380,000, supported by outstanding resources, including an employee team of more than 17,000. ECC has truly developed a golden reputation in Japan - 'If it's run by ECC, it must be good.'

ECC Foreign Language Institute

The ECC Foreign Language Institutes division is the flagship of the ECC Group. Since the establishment of our first school over 50 years ago, we have experienced steady growth and now have more than 180 campuses throughout Japan. ECC strives to promote a spirit of multiculturalism represented by a team of 15 different nationalities with over 400 native English speakers.
