School Introduction

It is said that the best way to learn a language is to live in the country where the language is spoken. This is because language learning not only involves the spoken word but also learning about the history, culture and values that formed the language. If you want to learn Japanese and fulfill your dreams, from your very first step ECC will do its best to support you. ECC has high-level curricula, conscientious instruction by your class teacher, and an environment in which students are well motivated. We have audiovisual aids, such as CDs, and videos, plus free internet. The school is located in the heart of Osaka, with convenient access.
