Beat Eikaiwa was the brainchild of Peter Carter and Taeko Kashiwagi and was established in November 2007. It opened its doors for its first students on January 4th, 2008 and has continued to grow. Designed as an English school for all ages and language proficiency levels, Beat Eikaiwa has shown its strengths and has seen steady, continued growth in student numbers and revenue since its inception. Its strengths were its involvement in the local community and its caring for its students. Through this effort Beat Eikaiwa has continued to attract students to its classes and student retention has never been a problem.
In 2019 Beat Eikaiwa had 130-140 concurrent students. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic currently it currently has approximately 100 students attending classes.
One key aspect to Beat Eikaiwa’s continued growth has been its location. Based in Hyotanyama-cho, Higashi Osaka, Beat Eikaiwa occupies a self standing building (3-classrooms), 1-minute from Hyotanyama Station which in itself is one of the busiest stops on the Kintetsu Line from Namba to Nara. It is perfectly located, opposite the Hyotanyama local government bicycle parking which houses over 1,200 bicycles and scooters. Foot traffic is also large as it is on the main access road to the Hyotanyama shotengai which houses all the major banking and service industries. See the location here.
