In addition, for students who wish to enter universities or vocational schools after acquiring Japanese language skills, we offer a full range of preparatory classes for the examination for the Japanese Language Proficiency Tests.


This is a short-term intensive course for those who wish to study Japanese intensively or for those who would like to experience Japanese language and culture even if only for a short time.
