As of 2017, Kurume Japanese Language School has a 50-year anniversary with achievements in its sustained teaching quality as well as student quality.
Located in Kurume, just outside of downtown Fukuoka city, with students from various countries, providing the opportunity to meet and interact with not only Japanese people but also fellow international peers. In this way, students can exchange culture, and life experiences with fellow students from countries like Taiwan, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and Australia.
The school is located only about a 5-minute walk from Nishitetsu Kurume Station, in the business center of Kurume, that also features natural scenery like the Chikugo River, providing great places for students to explore.
With the motto of guiding students to the maximum, the school always focuses on supporting outstanding students by providing scholarships, in-depth tutorials, specialized orientations, and career counselling, among other services.
Counseling support throughout the learning process
The Japanese classes at Kurume have a small number of students so students here are more exposed to learning directly with their teachers. In addition, students here also receive support throughout the course on their learning progress and on their future career path. The school organizes special classes to prepare students for the major Japanese language exams such as the JLPT and EJU.
Kurume regularly offers scholarships to students here, including these two main scholarships:
– “Scholarship of Japan Student Services Organization”
– “Kurume Seminar Scholarship”
Support to find employment for students
The major advantage of this school is the link between the school and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, which provides many opportunities for its students to find employment in Japan.
Low cost of living
The average living cost at the Kurume dormitories is ¥50,000-60,000 a month, which is 40% lower than the cost at other schools in the Kanto region, which have an average of around 95,000 a month.
