Testimonials from a Student and an Instructor

From a Student


My name is Alena. I come from Russia. I have a little message here for you, who’re thinking of learning Japanese.

I’ve been learning Japanese here at Human Academy Japanese Language School since October last year. I couldn’t speak Japanese at all when I came to Japan, so I had a hard time getting by every day. But now, thanks to the lessons I’ve been taking at HAJL I can speak some Japanese and I can manage to make myself understood in Japanese. The teachers are all very nice and teach us very kindly. It’s very easy to understand what they teach us. The lessons are all fun and I’m really enjoying them.

We study with students from different countries and it’s interesting to know how people from different countries think differently and it’s so nice to make friends with people from various countries. I have nine friends in my class who are all from different countries.

I started last October and now I’m in the middle level. Lessons in this level are rather difficult for me but I’m enjoying them because the teachers teach us very kindly.

I’m sure you’ll become very good at speaking Japanese if you study at HAJL. Let’s study Japanese with me at HAJL!

From an Instructor

At Human Academy Japanese Language School, we regard the classroom as a place where actual conversations in the real world should take place. We encourage our students to use Japanese as much as possible in the class.

Within a week students will be able to do a lot more than just exchanging greetings. They will be able to do shopping, order food at a restaurant and introduce themselves to a Japanese they have met for the first time. And it is not just a simple introduction of saying who they are. They will talk about their family, their hometown, and so forth. In a month, they will manage to carry on basic daily conversation, getting what they want to say across to the listener. They can go out to eat with their Japanese friends and enjoy chatting. They can enjoy traveling. They may even be employed for a simple job.

If you join HAJL, you will find what fun it is to learn Japanese and be surprised how fast you can make progress. We guarantee that you will acquire practical Japanese, which is important to live in Japan and work here.
