HAJL students have been getting thorough the exam for university!!

Students at Human Academy Japanese Language School are working on the 2013 April University exam and a lot of them already got the good results!!
Here are some comments from those students!!

Hello. I am Hwang Jooyoung and joined at HAJL Tokyo in July 2011. I was successfully accepted by Gakushuin University!! I had to take EJU, Japanese and Japan and the World for the first test and had an interview for the second test. I mainly went over what I had learned at HAJL. Adding to that, I attended EUJ preparatory course every Friday. That made me improve my composition skills drastically and attending the regular class made my listening and reading skills improve.
And what I learned in communication classes worked for the interview test!! I was used to speak in front of people be confident because of the presentations we made in class. At the one on one interview practice with teachers, they brought out the responses that can express myself. Because of that, I could make myself understood at the interview. I would love to give some advice to those students who are going to study for the exam in the future.
My name is Piao Xiuli. I have been studying at HAJL Osaka Campus since last October. I came from China. In September this year, I decided to go on to Kobe University Graduate School. HAJL does not only teach Japanese but they have some special courses for students who want to go on to Graduate schools, Universities, or Vocational schools. The experienced teachers teach students with great care. A lot of teachers supported me with planning of my research project and interview test. I truly cannot thank them for what they have done for me.

I am looking forward to going to Kobe University Graduate School to gain the knowledge of my area of expertise and enjoy school and life there.

We are very happy to know that students are satisfied with our career guidance!! We will introduce great news in newsletters in the future!!

Interview with an exchange student!!

Human Academy Vocational School/Human Academy Japanese Language School exchange students with Granada university in Spain. October 2012, Ramos Cuevas Pablo Javier-san came to our vocational school in Japan! He started learning MANGA and now interested in Shrines and Temples! We interviewed him!

Q: When did you begin to be interested in Japan?

Pablo-san: I got really interested in a cartoon that I saw on TV and started to be interested in Japan. I was into Japan and learned a lot of things Japan. Then, I got interested in Shrines, Temples, and Buddhism.

Q: When did you start learning Japanese?

Pablo-san: I got this passion to be able to speak Japanese and I was lucky to find a Japanese tutor in Spain. I took Japanese translation class to learn more Japanese.

Q: What do you think of Human Academy Japanese Language School classes?

Pablo-san: I felt it was difficult at the beginning but as I attended classes and studied at home, I started to understand classes more easily. Teachers in Cultural classes taught us carefully about Japanese art, Temples, Kyoto, and so on. The classes are great.

Q: What is Granada like?

Pablo-san: It is smaller than Osaka and people are very kind like Osaka. People in Osaka are very lively but easygoing. They watch soccer games with drinking beer on weekends.

Q: Please give some words to people who are thinking to start learning Japanese.

Pablo-san: It is said that Japanese language is difficult to learn. It is not easy but if you want to understand this attractive country and experience the culture, understanding the language is a must. Leaning the language is the best way to understand the country and people. Furthermore, MANGA and animation are great in this country!! Let's enjoy Japanese language!!

Pablo-san speaks not only Japanese but English, German, and Spanish. He wants to build up better relationship with Japanese people and that is why he is studying Japanese!! GAMBATTE!!
