As part of the Link and Motivation Group of companies, we also strive to be “motivation engineers.” We believe that consistent motivation is key to successfully learning a language, so our aim is to make sure our students are fully engaged and truly progressing towards their goals as they study with us. Our teaching and counselling staff work together to create positive, meaningful language learning experiences every day in order to this. As a company, we strive to enable them through our “Customer Second” philosophy, which ensures our staff enjoy an environment that supports them in their work and in their goals as well.

Steadily growing the business

Dean Morgan K.K was founded by Dean Rogers, who opened our first English and French conversation school under the name Dean Morgan Academy on July 14, 2004 in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Business operations expanded in 2006 and 2008 with the acquisition of Sala, a small chain of English schools in Osaka, followed by Hummingbird, a growing English pronunciation school with their own patented method. In 2015, the company acquired the Rosetta Stone brand license and our schools were rebranded as Rosetta Stone Learning Center.

A period of accelerated growth

The next milestone year for the company was 2017 when we became part of the Link & Motivation Group, a motivation-focused management consulting company which has been voted one of the best companies to work for in Japan. Since then, the group has opened several new schools in the Kanto and Kansai regions and further developed the business in exciting new areas. In 2017, we formed an alliance with Link Academy schools, Aviva and Daiei, to deliver online English lessons nationwide. In 2018, we launched Rosetta Stone Premium Club in our exclusive Ginza Six school followed by Rosetta Stone Corporate Services, which offers dispatch lessons to corporate clients.
