Guide to Choosing the Right Japanese School

We interviewed more than 10 former Japanese language school students, scoured the internet for common mistakes people have made and compiled it into one ultimate guide.

Choosing the right school can determine whether you enjoy Japan or not, so make sure to make the right choice!

Have you Found the Right Japanese Language School?

Some Japanese language schools in Tokyo offer solid programs for getting into University while others want to focus more on speaking. You will also run into others whose main focus is making sure students pass the JLPT 1 after two years.

Once you know what you want, finding the right school for you becomes much easier. Some schools go at a super intense speed that will make it hard to work part-time, while others have a more relaxed schedule that helps you balance both sides.

Find the right school in Tokyo with our guide on how to choose the right Japanese language school or consider our sister business Japan Switch.
