      Our History

      Berkeley House Language Center was founded in April 1973 by the Hagiwara family based on their passion for language learning and the belief that communicating across cultures is a vital skill for Japanese people. Through learning another language, our students expand not only their communication ability, but gain another point of view and way of thinking. They gain confidence in their ability to speak to those from other cultures allowing them to exchange ideas.
