Q&A "I want to study in Japan!"

You want to study in Japan, but you don't speak Japanese at all, and/or you have no one to teach you Japanese... My relative wants to study in Japan, but I have no idea about necessary documents, who to contact, or any schools in Japan.
Here, we will answer all of your questions!

Q: There are many language schools in Japan. How should I choose one?

A: Many of the Japanese language schools in Japan are recognized by the Association for the Promotion of Japanese Language Education and run. The number of schools recognized by it counts about 420. There are also schools that don't have recognition from the association and if you add those schools to the number, the number will be more than 600.
It is difficult to choose one from this many options, so why don't you start picking up a region you want to study in?

Q: Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka or Nagoya?

A: After deciding the region, you have to think about convenience. You'll go to school every day, so think carefully. Even if you don't have any idea about locations, do not worry! You just have to pick a school which is located in the centre of the city. In Tokyo, pick areas like Takadanobaba or Shinjuku. In Osaka, pick Shinsaibashi or Namba.
After that, go to a search engine on the internet and do some research by typing, for example, "Shinjuku, Japanese school." Then go through the options, pick some schools and call them to find out more about their schools.
The key is if the staff members are friendly and helpful, it's a good choice. Never choose one that is too business-like.

Q: Are there any requirements for studying in Japan?

A: Yes, there are some requirements. First of all, you need to have finished, at least, high school in your native country. And you also need to have a clear purpose as to why you want to study Japanese in Japan, and someone who can support you financially while in Japan.
Another requirement is if your educational background is up to high school, it is required you prove your Japanese ability. For all the other requirements, please contact each school.

Q: How long should I study?

A: It depends on your current Japanese ability and also purpose, but generally, between 1.3 and 2 years is needed.

Q: Can I join a course anytime?

A: You can usually join a course 4 times a year, in January, April, July and October. But because of visa application process, the deadline for each course is 5 months prior to the starting date.

Q: I'm worried about the school fee...

A: The fee differs at each school. At HAJL, we charge 21,000 yen for registration. Then before you enter Japan, the joining fee, 6-month course fee, plus other commissions totaling 367,000 yen, is due. For more details, contact our staff members. We will help you work out your payment plan.
