Student Picture Book 1: We Love HAJL School!!

Hello. I am Davi Zews, singer-songwriter, from Brazil. I have been studying at HAJL Tokyo Campus since January 2012. I was a singer at Brazil and I became to like Japanese language when a Japanese friend translated my song into Japanese and I decided to come to Japan for studying.
My dream is to become a singer and make songs written in Japanese language. I was invited as a singer at the "Brazilian Festival" held in Tokyo the other day and sang some songs.
When I joined HAJL, I could not speak Japanese but now, I have improved a lot and in intermediate level class. There are a lot of friends from all over the world at school and I enjoy the atmosphere very much. We practice speaking and communicating a lot in class and the teachers are very enthusiastic and kind. I enjoy learning very much!!!!!
I think people should have dreams to be made come true. I will enjoy teachers’ support by HAJL to make my dreams reality!!

Hello. I am Kan Sokugyo and studying at HAJL Osaka Campus. I came to Japan in January this year with my wife and started to study here. I was working dealing with Japanese-related matter in Korea. That made me interested in Japan and Japanese culture and study in Japan.
Something great happened recently! I was chosen to receive Human Academy School Scholarship!! I cannot believe I could be the one but come to think of it, it is because of the support by teachers and classmates. I want to thank you to all the people who supported me. It is not easy to live in Japan and learn Japanese. However, I have been enjoying the life and study. I think it is very important for your life "how you think" and "who you spend time with".
If you are still thinking if you study in Japan, you only live once, come to Human Academy Japanese Language School and learn together!!!!!

Start of a New Residency Management System

Do you know that the new residency management system started in Japan on July 9th. Before, foreign people who are to stay in Japan more than 90 days had to go to an ward office after their residence to resister their address. The new system is to simplify everything for foreigners living in Japan.

Point 1: Alien Registration Card System is abolished and Resident Card is Issued
A resident card is issued when granted permission pertaining to residence, such as landing permission, permission for change of resident status, and permission for extension of the period of stay. New system is a registration system that is more familiar to the registration system for Japanese people. You can, of course, use the alien registration card if you have it already for a while. Please do not worry about it.

Point 2: The re-entry permit system will be changed
You had to apply for re-entry permit at the immigration in the past but after the new system, you do not have to do it if you have a resident card and passport.

Point 3: Permission to engage in an activity other than that permitted under the resident status may be given at the port of entry or departure at some airports.
At Narita, Haneda, Chubu, and Kansai airports, the foreign students issued a resident card can apply for the permission to engage in an activity other than that permitted under the resident status (work-permit). The student who join HAJL usually use Narita or Haneda airport for Tokyo campus and Kansai airport for Osaka Campus and it is very convenient for them.

We have prepared to deal with this new system to answer all your questions at HAJL. Until you are used to this system, it looks a little complicated but it sure will make everything simpler for foreign students. If you have any questions about it, please feel free to ask the office.
