Student Messages

Thought me the importance of studying in everyday.

I live in Japan with my family. When I studied in Ichikawa Japanese Language Institute, I started reading hiragana and katakana, but after studying here for a year and a half, I was able to pass N2 and easy to get more work. The teachers teaching in very kind and easy-to-understand. They give me support many things whenever have problems. Kanji was difficult at first, but once I understood the meaning and form, it became happy to learn! There are many points that you cannot understand when you study by yourself, it would be more important to go to school for your studying everyday.(Mr. R, India)

Conversation with Japanese people became happily.

I came to Japan because of my husband's job transfer. When I was difficult to understand Japanese language at my kid's hospital or the government office, I saw a post on a customer reviews website and got admission into this school. There were students from various countries such as China, India, Myanmar, and Mongolia, and since we were all at the same level of Japanese language, we became friends easily. While studying Japanese, the teachers made the theme and goal clear, so we were able to progress steadily and it became happily to talk with Japanese people. Now, I want to focus on learning "respectful language", so I’m considering private lessons as well. (Ms. Natasha, Russia)


From guidance for higher education up to fun events

I live in Japan because of my parents' work. I studied at Ichikawa Japanese Language Institute because I wanted to enter a university in Tokyo. Since this school is well established and has a proven track record of many international students progressing to higher education, I received precise advice and help on my goals while choosing a school. After achieving N1 level, thanks to their help with Japanese-style interview practice and guidance on writing applications, I was able to pass without problems and enter into the university of my choice. My parents couldn’t believe it! I also treasure my various experiences at school events such as going to Disneyland, wearing Yukata, writing calligraphy, etc. (Ms. Wang, China)

First time life style in abroad

Around January 2013, I went abroad as a first time and came to Japan to study abroad. At that time, I wasn't very good in Japanese, and I didn't understand the meaning even of the word "Daijobu" which is "okay". I thought it was really hard because I don't have any vietnamese friend. However, the teachers from Ichikawa Japanese Language Institute taught not only Japanese, but also supported my life in various ways. Thanks to the easy-to-understand instruction, I was able to pass the JLPT Japanese Language Proficiency Test (N2 level) in about a year and a half. I am currently working in Japan. Thanks to what I learned at Ichikawa Japanese Language Institute for the first two years, I am able to live my life now and feel that my living environment is more comfortable. I like Japan and Ichikawa Japanese Language Institute very much.(DOAN VAN DUNG , VIET NAM)
