Individually-Tailored Curriculum

We take into account a range of learning styles when designing our course of study, ensuring that every student receives a personalized instruction. Even if you have limited time, our customized curriculum will help you make the most of it.

Qualified and Experienced Instructors

Our instructors bring not only qualifications and experience in Japanese language education, but also a wealth of business experience to the classroom. They are equipped to answer questions about business Japanese and can provide valuable insights into Japanese business culture and etiquette.

Simultaneous Assessment of Proficiency and Communication Skills

We believe it's important for students to objectively assess their own level and progress in business Japanese. That’s why we offer a unique assessment called the "Communicative Japanese Proficiency Test". It consists of three sections: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, and an interview, which allows us to measure not only reading and writing abilities, but also communication skills through conversation.

We are proud to serve a wide range of clients in various industries and from different countries. Our clients include many global corporations, making our experiences with such diverse clientele a valuable asset for serving you.
