Main Features

Study program of high achievement
Every year, students from over 30 countries enroll at this school, but to do so, they are required to go through a rigorous process to demonstrate their academic excellence from university or high school in their home country or demonstrate their desire to improve their Japanese language abilities. Typical classes are divided into 8 basic levels and some smaller classes are divided into 12 to 14 levels, according to students’ abilities. The academy has always focused on improving conversational abilities at all levels and during all classes and also makes great efforts to improve writing students’ skills, providing constant correction to each student. The school also has an admission recommendation system with many designated universities and colleges, where every year many of its students get accepted and continue their studies.
Extensive extracurricular activities
Every month, the academy organizes various events such as study guide workshops, job fairs, fire protection training, hot spring tours, and more. Also, with Japanese students also attending this school in the teacher training courses, there are many opportunities for international students and Japanese schools to practise their langauge skills with each other, exchange information about culture, help each other in daily life, and become friends in a global educational environment. In addition, the academy also formally organizes special events for the international commnity and Japanese community to exchange and share experiences and organises gatherings to attend Japanese cultural events such as the fireworks festival, and other community events. These events further provide great cultural experiences with newly-made friends, which form unforgettable memories of their studieswhile in Japan.
Many sources of support
Abitus Joint Stock Company is a parent company that operates as a real estate office, and owns and manages many buildings used as dormitories for students. Accordingly, students who need accommodations can obtain a suitable place through this school’s network. In addition, to prepare future job applicants, students can study both Japanese language and at the same time take an CPA accountants certification course or study for an MBA degree provided by a University of Massachusetts program.
For those who also wish to improve their English, it is also possible to improve both Japanese and English proficiency at the same time. For those students who wish to study at top universities and graduate schools in Japan, the school offers various specialty courses designed with the guarantee of being able to enter top university programs, prestigious fine arts programs, or graduate programs in the business sector, all of which are offered alongside other language study programs at the school. The academy facilitates full support in all aspects of student life, from developing a study plan to providing clean self-study areas so students can focus on their studies.
