So you’d like to study in Japan?

Finding the right place to learn Japanese in Japan can be a challenging, and sometimes stressful process. Especially if you’re applying from outside of Japan. Will I like the school? What are the teachers like? It can seem like a huge decision and investment. But you shouldn’t let this discourage you.

Differences types of courses in Japan

Depending on the school, you will have the option of a short or long term course. For long term courses you may require a visa that allows you to live and study in Japan. Over the years we’ve had quite a few students go and attend short course and then come back. The teaching style and environment was obviously much different to what we offer but overall they said it was an enjoyable experience. 

Each school can offer similar courses but with their own unique feel and theme. Location is also a big factor to consider when choosing a school. Do you want to study Japanese in Tokyo or study Japanese in the countryside? Most courses combine fun cultural activities like sightseeing, flower arrangement and tea ceremonies.  On a daily basis you will also have the ability to practice what you learn in class in public at restaurants, shops and with locals etc.
