Attendance rate 100%. We offer a learning environment that motivates the students to study!
Japanese Language Course and Academic Preparation and Liberal Arts Course are composed of a class with a small number of students, 20 or under, with 1 full-time lecturer assigned to one class, to conduct an integrated guidance. All lecturers are fully qualified and half of them are full-time faculty members. The lesson adopts the direct teaching method in Japanese, while restricting the use of their mother tongue during the class, we accustom them to think in Japanese and talk in Japanese. We put together a curriculum that will enable the students to absorb the four skills of “reading, writing, listening and speaking” in a balanced manner and to allow them to utilize these skills they acquire with various activities.
1. Thorough individual guidance
① Learning guidance
We will select guidance methods tailored to each student from regular tests, practice tests and analysis of results, provide special guidance to excellent students, and provide supplementary guidance for students who need to catch up.
② Academic preparation guidance
We will conduct interviews and examination instruction thoroughly until a convincing plan is determined upon.
③ Daily life guidance
We aim at 100% attendance rate and provide integrated guidance for dorm life and student life. We also have courses for the students to become familiar with Japanese laws and customs.
2. Academic preparation guidance in accordance with individual wishes, aptitude and ability
① Information gathering
We will accompany students to outside academic preparation briefings and open campus, as well as conduct an academic preparation orientation, lectures on academic preparation at our school by person in charge of entrance exam at universities and technical schools, and advice from current university students and those who are already working at alumni meetings.
