  • Hi, my name is Aya and I am from Vietnam. When I came to Japan in October 2017, I couldn’t understand Japanese so much but because of the teachers, I think my Japanese progressed very fast. During the last 8 months, I could go with my classmates and school teachers to numerous event and experienced the Japanese culture. It is really a lot of fun!

  • Hello, my name is Dinesh. Because I love Japan, I entered Nihongo Center in October 2017. When I arrived at Nihongo Center, I was the only Sri Lanka new student and, because I couldn’t speak English very well, I was worried about making new friends and simply living in Japan. But I decided to change my seat in class every week, and now I am very happy because I have friend from all over the world. I also really like the teaching method of all the teachers. They are teaching with passion. We are not only doing test regularly, but we are also practicing conversation a lot, and we really feel it in our progress. l. It’s been 8 months I am studying Japanese and I am very happy we started the N3 level.
