Message from the Owner

My name is Glen Charles Rowell and I’m the owner of A Great Dream language school. I’ve been living in Japan for almost 25 years, can speak Japanese and have networked with a lot of people.

If you’re here then you have received one of my private business cards, found me through SNS, on one of my websites or you’ve found out I am giving away some study advice. Secrets discovered through years of study, also through teaching and mentoring over 40,000 people.

These techniques benefit those who are looking for help in transforming their lives beyond just their relationships with others.

For example, a Synthetic Happiness Technique. Most people think having a lot of time and the ability to change their mind at any time is a good thing, but in many situations it’s actually better not to have a lot of choices. If your problem isn’t too difficult to deal with, just quickly make a choice and stick with it. Don’t run away from the problem, or trouble that faces you. By facing problems head-on, it will help you learn a lot quicker.

No Fluff

Lessons that are straight to the point and give you real-world, actionable items that you can start implementing immediately.

Start by using some of the free study resources on this website.

English as a Language in General

English is based on a simple alphabet, therefore it’s fairly easy to learn compared to other languages. It’s also the official language of about 70 countries, so it is the most commonly spoken language around the world. In total, roughly 1.5 billion people speak English worldwide (Internet World Stats) – and another billion or so are in the process of learning it.

According to W3Techs as of September 29th, 2023, roughly 50.1% of the worlds webpages are written in English (Internet World Stats.). The next most widely used language is Spanish at 5.8% and then in 4th place, Japanese at 4.8%. Due to this, knowledge of English allows you to understand far more of the world’s intellectual resources. Within the Science Citation Index, an estimated 95% of articles are written in English despite only half being from English-speaking countries.

Can’t Speak Japanese or Looking for Work in Japan?

Japan has about 1.28 million foreign workers. But it is said that only 1 in 4 Japanese companies plan to actively employ foreign workers under the new government immigration program (The Japan Times, 2019). So if you are looking for a job here it is good to be able to speak the language and have a few friends that know what is happening.

Japanese can be a difficult language to learn and when you first get to Japan there are signs written in kanji everywhere that make learning the language difficult. We are here to help and can teach you Japanese even if you are just starting out.

Glen is a really nice teacher. You should try his lessons. He helped me learn a lot and is good at explaining the differences between words.
