Global MOM to MOM

 Guide for non-Japanese moms

Welcome to Global MOM to MOM!

What is Global MOM to MOM?

About us

It is a community for Japanese families and non-Japanese families living in Japan. This is for parents who want to raise kids multilingually and globally.

You don't need to go abroad in search of the international environment. You can just connect with people from different countries who live in Japan.

This project started in October, 2019. Now there are about 120 Japanese families and 70 international families (from 24 nationalities) are in this project. (over 600 people including kids and husband) It started in Kansai, but it expanded all over Japan.

Nice to meet you!

Hi,  I'm YOKO who stared Global MOM to MOM!

Here is why I started...

Japanese mothers put a lot of effort into trying to make their kids bilingual, but often they don’t try to speak English or even learn it themselves. I think this is a big problem.

I want to tell them that mothers should show how fun it is to communicate with non-Japanese in English, then kids will follow that example.

English is not something just to be studied. It’s a communication tool. I really hope more and more Japanese kids speak English and go out into the international scene.

Through this project, I want to be a bridge of Japanese families and non-Japanese families. It's great if you meet Japanese mothers outside of the lessons or gathering events as a private friends.

Not "Teacher" and "Student" relationship. Just like regular friends.
This is the whole concept of this project.

Most language schools and preschool prohibit for teachers and students to meet privately, but I encourage everybody to do that in this group. 

But when you meet them privately, please meet them just like regular MAMA friends. Please don't charge them any fee as a lesson or please don't recruit to your service such as English school or private English lessons etc...

If you agree with this concept, please join!
