General Course


  In our general course, students study the Japanese language long-term on a student visa. Classes are carefully organized according to skill levels and learning speeds of students. In this course, teachers help students comprehensively expand their proficiency in Japanese, with a proper balance of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Additionally, we take steps aimed at enabling students to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) with a high score. Along the way, students acquire Japanese language abilities useful in a variety of situations.
  For students aiming to advance to a university or a specialized school after graduation, we have abundant experience to send students to a lot of schools including top universities and graduate schools. With such experiences, class teachers and specialized staff provide advice for students to advance to higher education suitable to each student. In addition to Japanese language classes, students can attend classes for the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU) if they wish.
  Students aiming to obtain a job in Japan can have individual consulting on how to find a job, create resume, and have a job interview by specialized staff, and can have referrals to companies by our group company.
