Testimonials / 學生的聲音

  • Hi, my name is Quentin and I am from New Caledonia. I have been in Japan for almost 2 years now, and I will be graduating from Nihongo Center in September. This school really helped me improve my Japanese and the teachers are great. When I started, I just knew “kanas” and a few “Kanji” but I took the N2 test last week and hopefully I will pass. What is great about Nihongo Center are definitely the students from around the world that you can meet and enjoy the Kyoto life with!

  • My name is Saijai Chaiyawoot, 31 years old, from Thailand. Now I’m studying at Nihongo Center. I really enjoy studying here because I got many international friends. The atmosphere of class so fun and teaching styles from institutors are so easy to understand. It has been three months so far I’m studying here, I really improved about reading, the writing and for sure conversation in daily life. Now I don’t need to be shy anymore to talk with store’ s clerks when I want to buy something from the convenient store.
