Impressions from students

Anurag (India)
“I found most lectures as well as exercises very challenging. This provided a solid platform for me to motivate myself in order to overcome these obstacles” Thank you very much Kitagawa Sensei and Kiwi's Sensei. It's honor I could learn something from you and I am sure "this Course is gone be milestone" for me to find employment here in Japan.
Abi (India) 
日本に来る前は自己紹介も難しく感じていましたが、学校のおかげで日本語も上達し、就職も決まりました! 毎日のクラスでも沢山勉強できましたが、就職準備コースは、私にとってターニングポイントになりましたので、本当におすすめです。
In class I just built myself confidence and we learn lots of things in 8days. And it’s too much helpful for my future. Thanks to all.

2018 Autumn course

2018 Autumn course

If you are serious about working in Japan in the future, here are a couple of useful things you can take away from the course, for example:
〇How to prepare your CV in Japanese
〇Interview tips and mock interview
〇Tips on self-promotion
〇Useful Japanese phrases to help you response in various situations at the workplace …and more.
At first I was surprised that there were only 2 students in the class, but in the end I was glad that the staff introduced me to a number of Japanese companies that really match my set of skills and abilities. The teachers were nice and friendly, and will gladly answer any of your questions.
The course is held only once per week, and its contents is surprisingly easy to grasp (provided you have a decent command of Japanese)
Also, I was provided a lot personal support such as CV proof reading, counselling service, guidance for preparation of interview answers etc., which was helpful.
And finally, personal support doesn’t end when you finish the course. So you can always contact the staff in case you need help throughout your job hunting quest. Overall it was a good experience and I believe that this was a worthwhile investment.
