Welcome to the home of ALESS, ALESA and FLOW

The ALESS and ALESA Programs are part of the Center for Research and Development of Higher Education within the University of Tokyo. Since 2008, the programs have focussed on innovative English language classes which centrally involve the active participation of students in the classroom. The mainstay of ALESS and ALESA are academic writing classes. From 2015, classes focussing on spoken fluency in an academic setting (FLOW) are also offered.
