Why this school?
【Definite Japanese Proficiency】
With up to 14 classes available from the beginner to advanced level, students are able to choose the class that best fits their Japanese language level. Classes are small with 20 students or less making for an environment in which our experienced teachers can focus on the needs of each individual student and adjust the curriculum accordingly. It is thanks to this system that focuses on the needs of the student that we are able to create classes that help students become proficient in Japanese while paying attention to their personal interests.
【Multicultural and Multinational】
Students from all over the world come to study at our school. For this reason, our curriculum is designed to overcome national and cultural barriers by including various events and activities and using Japanese as the common language of communication with all of our students. Students are not only from different countries but from different ages, and occupations. They have different reasons for studying Japanese and have different approaches to learning the language. This diverse environment is not only meant to improve language ability, but also expand each individual's horizons and be the stage for a fruitful study abroad experience.
At our school, we have a number of foreign staff members who also have the experience of studying abroad in Japan. These foreign staff members work closely with their Japanese teammates to promote study abroad success for all of our students. Our team provides places themselves in the shoes of international students and provides start to finish and post-graduation support to all of our students in the form of pre-arrival preparation, mid-program study, part-time job, accommodation, living, college admission, and career advancement support. It is thanks to the international members of our staff that there is less of a cultural gap between us and our students and we are able to better understand each individual's background.
Students / Teachers Voice
I have loved my time studying Japanese at Fukuoka Japanese Language School.
All the teachers are encouraging. They made me feel completely comfortable to speak up and make mistakes in class. I think this is really important when learning a new language. It’s more expensive than some other language schools, but the classes are guaranteed to be small so it’s worth the cost.
The FJLS staff is really helpful about organizing accommodation and giving advice on setting up your life in Japan (subway cards, directions, bank account, phone etc). This was critical when we first arrived and couldn’t understand the language at all!
There is a beautiful lounge area with an attached bookstore and cafe in the building which is a great place to hang out, meet people and do your homework after class.
I want to come back next year again to learn more about the culture of Japan.
I have been studying in FJLS for a year now and needless to say, I have learned a lot. Not only about Japanese Language but the Japanese culture and values. The school staff provides assistance with school Application, Immigration process, living accommodations. And that's not all, they help you with finding a suitable part-time job, setting up a bank account, phone, health insurance, any complications you might have in your early stay and most of all, they make you feel welcome. The school also assists students with plans after graduation, the college application, and specialty schools.
We are constantly encouraged to express our views and creativity through various entertaining activities during class and with fun outings that help us better understand the culture. All the teachers are very kind, dedicated and patient. The classes are divided according to the Japanese level of a student. And taught in such a manner that every student gets the attention of the teacher. Every student is encouraged to speak in Japanese and is motivated to participate in one on one conversations.
I am quite happy with my decision to study in this school, it has been a fun and educating experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
