What is TGG?

The Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education (TBoE) formally contracted a consortium of five private-sector entities to manage and operate a large-scale experience-oriented English-education facility aiming to nurture global citizens. The TBoE also decided to name the facility — “TOKYO GLOBAL GATEWAY,” dubbed “TGG,” while endorsing the outline of the project.

The main users of this facility will range in age from elementary school children to senior high school students. The facility expects to provide visiting students with various programs, including simulated experiences of speaking English in daily life situations overseas in such places as airports and restaurants. The facility will also include programs dealing with science and technology, business, international contribution and international exchange, where students will be able to discuss in English how to work out solutions or new ideas through group work. Throughout these activities, many English instructors (“Specialists”) and teaching assistants (“Agents”) will assist and encourage students to accomplish given tasks. Many public and private corporations, Japanese and international, are expected to join this project as partners or supporters to provide students with practical and hands-on learning.

The Purpose of Establishment

In the current English education system in Japan, there are few opportunities to speak in English in daily situations. To reinforce these opportunities, TOKYO GLOBAL GATEWAY (TGG) provides various kinds of situations such as hotels, restaurants, airports, etc. There are also programs dealing with science and technology, business, international contribution and international exchange, in which
students discuss in English how to work out solutions or new ideas through group work.
TGG is a new experience-oriented English-education facility aimed at improving the English proficiency of students ranging from elementary school to high school that will nurture a future generation of globally conscious people.
