Why this school?
【Carefully Organized Classes that Make Use of the Merit of Our Large School】
Because we are a large school, we are able to create several classes for a given level of Japanese language proficiency. This makes it possible for classes to advance at their own pace and for students to learn in a class that is best suited to their individual needs. In our classes, students do not simply learn Japanese necessary to pass a test but learn the Japanese necessary to advance into the next stage of their academic career.
The Sendagaya Japanese Institute Japanese Teachers' Training Program has been training instructors for over 40 years. Our teachers are taught practical theory and skills which they use to teach at institutions in Japan and around the world. At Sendagaya group schools, these Japanese language teachers are helping eager students through their classes and teaching methods.
【Unlimited Support in Your Native Language】
At Sendagaya Group, we have staff from a number of countries including China, Vietnam, Russia, Sweden, and Egypt. Whether it be study questions or help with everyday life concerns come see us as much as you want any time you want.

After I decided to come to Japan, I started to look for a language institute. The school my friend who lived in Japan recommended to me first was Sendagaya Japanese Institute. The best thing I like about the school is the teachers’ close attention because the class is a small group. When I first entered the class, I was surprised at the energy and enthusiasm of the teachers. Every teacher is always cheerful and friendly, and they can explain everything clearly and it is easy to understand.
I am proud of myself to have chosen the right school as my first one in Japan. I think I can speak Japanese better if I study hard here. I will register the next semester as well and study hard!
At Sendagaya Japanese Institute, the classroom is designed for small groups of students, so I had a great opportunity to speak Japanese all the time when I was in the class. Moreover, because of limited seats, teachers can focus intentionally and specifically on students; leading my Japanese language in every corner became much improved. I could feel that all teachers put much effort to teach and provide the best of knowledge to students. Even though I did not come from Kanji-writing countries, which are difficult for me to study Chinese characters, with kindly support from all the teachers in this school I would be able to pass through the difficult time and able to speak Japanese with confidence.
These are the main reasons I chose Sendagaya Japanese Institute.
So far, my experience at Sendagaya Japanese Institute has been amazing!
Everyone has been extremely helpful and kind. I have studied in Japan twice before and both of those times I felt like the schools did not really try to understand the students and did not try to make it the best experience for them.
However, here I feel like that everyone is doing there absolute best to match the needs of the individual students.
