Our Story


Queenie Kawabe, the founder of Kawa Kawa Learning Studio, started her teaching journey in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She has been promoting languages, communication skills, and cross-cultural skills with active learning techniques since 2006.


Over the years, Queenie has taught in a variety of educational industries and discovered that many people were struggling with their communication skills and feeling lost on their path to success because they were not able to communicate confidently and clearly. In 2011, Queenie developed the “Kawa Method” in Australia – and the results were stunning.

High school/university students and adult students alike were able to gain confidence in their speaking in a small amount of time. High school/university students were happier at school, and adult students were able to perform better at work. Queenie believes that communication is the key to success.

In 2015, Queenie decided to start an online educational platform where she can reach out and help more students. Now, she has a team of people who are passionate and dedicated to making changes in education.

Kawa Kawa Learning Studio strives to create a healthy, confident, and authentic learning ecosystem which connects parents, students, schools, and society for truly 21st-century-style learning.

Queenie and her team believe that the capacity to change rapidly and apply new skills is paramount for the 21st century. The future is uncertain, but Kawa Kawa Learning Studio is prepared to help the next generation.


Now, Queenie is living in Japan. She wants to help more students and young people in the next decade because she has been there and she believes that teens and young people should build self-awareness and communication skills as early as possible to help them to achieve maximum success in life, work, and school.

Our Key Principles For The 21st Century Learning

Gardner's Multiple Intelligences

Everyone is unique and one learning style doesn’t fit all.

We believe that all students have different needs, strengths, weaknesses, and backgrounds.

With our team, we help each individual student establish their needs and strengths so they can perform to the best of their own way and fulfill their highest potential.

A Growth Mindset

A student with a growth mindset constantly make mistakes and improve.

We believe that students who are readiness. They are fully prepared for Curiosity, Creativity and Challenge.

With our team, we help you improve your critical-thinking and collaboration to build a strong relationship with people.

Clarity Is King

A successful leader is a patient listener and an effective communicator.

We believe that students should have a growth mindset and invest in oneself without shortcuts.

With our team, we don’t teach you how to memorize words or translate sentences. We teach you how to speak clearly and confidently so you can make an impact in life, school, and work with languages skills and cross-cultural skills
