Qing Yan (China)

Passing the JLPT N1 is not enough to pass graduate school entrance exams. You also need to be able to write essays and express your thoughts clearly in Japanese.  Also, it is very important to be able to read reports on technical subjects as well as your own areas of interests. I received a lot of instruction from my teachers at Sendagaya that helped me not only level up my Japanese but also write my research proposal. It is also very important to gather as much information as possible when preparing for graduate school entrance exams.

Chuang (China)

Through Sendagaya's school transfer course, I was able to earn acceptance to the graduate program that I wanted. I am sincerely thankful for the school's teaching. The grammar, reading comprehension, and research proposal writing class were especially useful. There are many excursions and off-site learning opportunities available which makes life as an international student very fun. I highly recommend Sendagaya Japanese Institute to anybody who is looking to seriously study in Japan.

Thanks to all the teachers at Sendagaya and their wonderful teaching, I was able to be admitted to graduate school at Tokyo University. "Effort is always rewarded, if there is still unrequited effort, that is not an effort." That is, in order to succeed, the appropriate amount of effort is necessary. However, I think that effort in itself is not enough. Put all of your heart into studying efficiently and discovering new study methods is also important.
