I've been studying in ARC for around a year since late 2017 to further develop my Japanese in hopes of enrolling into a university in Japan. From before I was accepted as a student in this school, the staff was very kind to answer my questions and worries. From the time I enrolled in Arc Academy until now, the teachers proved to be very dedicated to every student's needs. Whether it is about applying for a job or practicing interviews and writing admission papers for your desired university, they carefully check and help you along the way. Aside from studying the fundamentals, they also allow you to choose optional classes to help you get ready for university, apply for a job etc. They also have occasional events which encourages the students to experience Japanese traditions or even go on a field trip as a study session. Overall my time here was priceless and compared to how I was one year ago, my Japanese has improved drastically and achieved most of what I had hoped for in a year.

The first time I came to the ARC Tokyo Japanese Language School it was to get some information about the student visa process as I was already in Japan. I was very gently welcomed and a teacher took the time to listen to my situation and to reply to my inquiries (Besides, this teacher was also fluent in French which in my case made it really easier to discuss administrative matters). A few months later I started the long-term course.
After 1 year and almost 9 months here, I can say I am very grateful to have found this Japanese language school. Firstly, the contents of the main courses and lessons are well organized and various, and moreover instantly usable in daily life. Then, the optional courses are, I think, a really good point of ARC as it allows us to either learn more about Japanese culture or to help us focus and prepare for our next Japanese exams. Secondly, the teachers are really nice and cheer up the students to make their best. Not only do they teach Japanese, but they are also always here to offer help and assist if you need advice regarding finding a job or entering university, or if you meet any difficulties outside of the school. I think this is really a plus, particularly for younger students who may experience living abroad for the first time.
Before entering ARC, I have had an experience of a short-term course in a different Japanese language school. If I had to make a comparison, I would say that the atmosphere at ARC is very positive, both warm and serious at the same time. And above all, it really feels like the teachers care for the students.
If I were asked, I would recommend ARC Tokyo Japanese Language School anytime, and I am glad I had the opportunity to study in this school.

ARC Tokyo Japanese Language School’s amazing staff was helpful from the beginning, assisting me through the initial paperwork with any questions I inquired. It is a tremendous help, especially while living abroad, to have such personable, professional, and reliable staff there for you. While it may take a moment to get adjusted to life in Japan, there are so many kind students and staff at ARC who you can talk with if you have any concerns. I did a lot of research on which language school to go to, but I’m glad I ended up choosing ARC. The facilities are clean and the location is based in a nice area of Tokyo. The atmosphere of the school feels professional but friendly. The teacher and the class structure changes depending on the day of the week, which creates a more dynamic classroom contributing to a livelier atmosphere. I’m happy with my decision to study at ARC and I look forward to the next semesters learning with them.
