What Our Students Say

“I was so suprised how good the classes were. My goal was to learn Japanese and then get a job. Classes were tough at first, but once my language ability improved I could speak, read and write so much Japanese. In my 18 month course I learnt enough Japanese to get a good job where I can uase English and Japanese.”

“My first month was quite hard to adjust to the classroom style and language. But, the teachers were so kind, helpful and acommodated my pace. After classes I could ask the teacher questions about my lesson to clarify what I didn't fully understand. It was a wonderful experience for me and I learnt so much.”

“The school and teachers have that old-fashioned homely feel to it. It was scary at first being in Japan, but teachers encouraged and helped me to settle in and guided me throughout my course. When graduation was getting closer, they helped me to prepare for entering university where I am currently studying. Thank you Johoku.”
