Our main role at the school is to improve the ability to communicate in Japanese which is necessary for work, study and life in Japan. Communication skill does not come from memorizing grammar or vocabulary or choosing a correct answer in a Here at Human Academy Japanese Language School Tokyo Campus, 1,200 students from more than 30 countries are studying Japanese together.

At our school, in addition to language skills needed for everyday life, students aim for a higher level of Japanese and keep studying. They learn and acquire communication skills, thinking skills, explanation skills, and telling skills with their classmate during class, which they can't study if they are in their home country or alone. Students think for themselves, discuss, explain, and inform in class. We instructors play the tole of facilitator.
We instructors help our students learn Japanese so that they can make good use of it for further studying or working in various ways. Also, we would like them to be international and a bridge between Japan and their home country.

In Human Academy's class students are protagonists. Every day they always think for themselves, teach each other, and help each other improve their Japanese skills. Also, instructors with quirky personalty support their students, sometimes strictly, other times kindly. Studying abroad means a lot of issues to deal with, but Human Academy's classmates and instructors are there for you. Let us encourage each other and have a great student life working toward your own dreams!

Why do you learn Japanese? Is it because you like Japan? Or because you like Japanese cartoons? Maybe you want to talk to a Japanese? Going to school in Japan? Looking to find a job in Japan? Want to live in Japan? Everyone has their own reasons for learning Japanese. Then what do you do after you've learned Japanese?
I'm sure that learning Japanese is not your life's goal. We, the lecturers, helps you study for the future beyond that. We are waiting for you at Human Academy Japanese Language School, Osaka school.

Ms. Kaoru Takada

I was transferred to Saga school from Tokyo school in February 2015.
Saga school is new, but its educational philosophy is the same as those of Tokyo school and Osaka school. It is not only getting the knowledge about Japanese, but also emphasizing in using the acquired knowledge to utilize it. We consider this is the true significance of learning Japanese language in Japan.
Therefore, we offer an environment that everyone can speak actively while constantly interacting with teachers and classmates during the lesson. We improve students ability to understand the problem that they did not know before and solve it each other by conveying what they want to say clearly and listening carefully to the other people's story. Besides the classes, there are fun events such as a bus trip for every season, speech competitions, and sports competitions.
Others, we have events that are characteristics of Saga school, such as the exchange event with local people.I think we can have true international exchange by directly contacting with the local people, and listening to each other's voice.

Mr. Seigo Shin

Hello, everyone
My name is Shin, and I'm Human Academy Japanese Language Tokyo Campus Executive Director.
I have lived in Japan since more than 10 years ago. At that time I didn't understand Japanese at all. First, I went to Japanese Language School to learn Japanese, studied further, and got employed. So far I have experienced so many things, and would like to tell you two things. First, making full use of being Japan, you should study Japanese and become fluent. If you make efforts, you can certainly accomplish this goal. Secondly, have a dream. If you have a dream, you feel encouraged and feel like hanging in there. I believe every one of you will make your dream come true.

Your instructors will support you with care so that you can improve Japanese. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to come to us. Let's solve it together. A great future is waiting for all of you. Let's get there together.

Our Osaka school is located in the center Osaka, where over 1,000 of our students strive in their studies everyday to progress towards their own dreams.
Osaka is a city where foreigners can live easily, with massive amounts of foreign tourists.
This is thanks to Osaka people's friendliness and the traditional food culture, among other things. It's also close to other historical cities such as Kyoto and Nara.

We hold our lessons, focusing on active learning using our original teaching materials, "Connecting Japanese." Other than courses for exchange students, we also have short term courses allowing students to focus on learning in a short time, induction training for business and enterprises, private lessons, group lessons with a small number of people, VOD and online courses, and other various courses to match the needs of our students.

Hello, everyone.
I am Nishimura of Human Academy Japanese Language School's Saga campus.
I started working here in 2016 and was engaged in suggesting tasks for the Japanese language training for those working at the school, and since April 2019 I have had the pleasure of being in charge of the operation and management of the online Japanese lessons.

The Saga campus opened in April 2015 as Japan's first Japanese language school to be a collaboration between industry, academia and government.
It has been operating in cooperation with enormous support from the community, such as scholarships and part time job support.
In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of foreign residents in Saga. Rich in nature and warm-hearted people, it is a well-equipped environment for focusing on the study of the Japanese language.

Online lessons for students all over Japan and worldwide are also offered from the Saga campus. Even those without the time to commute to school or who live far away can take lessons using this service.

We are lucky enough to receive support for your Japanese language learning in various forms, so I hope you will enjoy your time here.
