Human Academy conducts Japanese Language Education for foreign students
Our idea of internationalization is not just that Japanese people study foreign languages, or go overseas or know a different culture. As a school authorized by the Association for the Promotion of Japanese Language Education, we are committed to Japanese language education for foreign students at our campuses in Tokyo, Osaka and Saga. Our goal is to increase international understanding and use of the Japanese language. As the range of international exchange increases, we believe that through this kind of education we have an important role to play.

Human Academy Japanese Language School Tokyo campus was established in 1991 and we celebrates 24th year in business this year. During this time, many people learned Japanese at our school. Some of them are still working in Japan now, whereas the others went back to their countries and work as using Japanese language.
There are various purposes to studying Japanese depending on each learner - to go to a college or a university in Japan, to work for a Japanese company, to know Japanese culture more widely and deeply, to live in Japan, or etc. Although their goals are different, they have a common challenge, which is "to be able to use the Japanese language" and the only way to achieve it is to practice. We will support for them "to be able to use the Japanese language" with the effective practice. People will never forget what they have worked really hard.
In recent years, Japanese companies became to actively recruit foreigners, so Japanese learners are increasing. What you are asked in a job interview is "what you could do by utilizing the Japanese language skills". Even though you told an interviewer that you passed N2, if the interviewer didn't know what you could do with it, they wouldn't know what kind of contribution you could make for their company. The number of companies that engage in Japanese training after hiring successful applicants of N2 is also increasing. "What you can do by utilizing your Japanese language skills" is now regarded as the most important matter. Hence, the theme of our everyday's lesson is "what you become to be able to do today".
In addition, in the Human Academy, there are temporary staffing sector, vocational schools, and a lot of bases in foreign countries. We will continue to support for everyone to learn Japanese and take an active part in the world as using the Japanese language.

Thank you for browsing the website of Human Academy Japanese Language School.
It was decided that the Tokyo Olympic Games and Paralympic Games will be held In 2020. I believe that would make more and more foreigners get interested in Japan. According to the announcement of the Osaka Tourism Bureau, the numbers of foreigners visiting Osaka demonstrates an upward trend. It was about 2 million people in 2012 and about 2.6 million in 2013.
Not only Tokyo but also many other places in Japan have great spots and things. Especially in Osaka, as being said it is a city of Cui-daoré, which means "ruining oneself by extravagance in food", you can enjoy various countries' cuisines. In addition, it is said that the characteristic of Osaka people is "very caring, spreading well, and obliging". It also has a good access to Kyoto and Nara where you can experience great Japanese culture. In Human Academy Osaka campus locating in such Osaka, we are waiting for you with our "hospitality". We are looking forward to meeting you all.
