ABOUT
Introduction of IECC Japanese Language School

Contribute to the development of the international community by enhancing multicultural symbiosis.

IECC Japanese Language School was established in 1984 for the purpose of international cultural exchange and human resource development. I have devoted myself to contributing to the development of the international community through the realization of people's dreams, the sharing of different values and cultures of each country, and the fostering of multicultural symbiosis. After that, in 2012, we were reorganized under a new management organization and have continued to this day. We are engaged in educational activities that enhance sexuality.
At our school, even those who do not understand Japanese at all can grow to a level where they can enter a Japanese university or graduate school in the future, or get a job. In addition, it is a Japanese language education institution with a sense of home, where experienced instructors will teach you not only "Japanese language" but also "life skills in Japan".

FEATURES
Features of IECC Japanese Language School
01

Japanese class with a focus on conversation

In order to improve Japanese conversation skills according to various situations and situations in everyday life, we conduct classes centered on conversation. After all, "listening" and "speaking" are indispensable in real life, so we are focusing on these so that you can get used to it as soon as possible. At our school, classes are conducted efficiently in a fun atmosphere based on the DIRECT TEACHING METHOD.

02

Detailed lifestyle guidance and thorough academic guidance

Our policy as a Japanese language school is to be a school established for international cultural exchange and human resource development. We don't just teach Japanese, we teach Japanese culture and manners in an easy-to-understand manner. From the time of admission, we provide thorough guidance on daily life and academic advancement so that students can lead a more fulfilling life without worrying about living in Japan.

03

Intensive Japanese language learning in small groups

Our school is small and cozy, but one of its features is that it is a warm school with a long history. Each class has a small number of students, and Japanese teachers with extensive teaching experience will carefully guide you. In addition, we are in a situation where we can make the most of the advantage of having a small number of people, so we can immediately solve "what we do not understand" and "what we want to ask" on the spot. You can attend classes in a comfortable environment.

You can learn high-quality Japanese efficiently in a short period of time. Please come to IECC!

I entered in 2017 and graduated in 2019. I am currently a student at Takushoku University. As an October student, I was able to acquire high-quality Japanese in a short period of time under the guidance of experienced Japanese teachers, and as a result, I was able to pass the JLPT proficiency test N1. By grasping each person's proficiency level, strengths, and weaknesses, you can efficiently grow your Japanese. In addition, it is characterized by being able to learn things other than language, such as business manners unique to Japan, Japanese culture and customs, ways of thinking and behavior. Please come to IECC!

The teachers were kind and caring, and I was able to study and live every day with peace of mind.

I am from Nepal and came to Japan in 2014. It is "Tapar Magar Pramila". I studied Japanese at IECC Japanese Language School for about two years. At first, I was nervous and worried, but the teachers were kind and caring, and I was able to study and live every day with peace of mind. I am currently working as a full-time employee at Samantha Thavasa Japan Limited, a Japanese bag brand, since 2018. I would like students who want to study in Japan to make studying Japanese their first goal. I'm rooting for you all.
