The teachers are kind and polite to teach Japanese."

Facebook Review

"Have been learning Japanese by myself for a while, I was new to this teaching technique and liked it a lot.
The summer course was a ton of fun, i liked every activity the school took us to, everything only makes me want to come back!"

Facebook Review

"I graduated today.
Thank you so much. Two years ago at this time, I don't know anything. I decided to go to the sng. And now I still think this decision is right.
When I just came to Japan, I couldn't even read katakana. I supported and cheered me up.
The teachers taught me politely, and thanks to that, I was able to take a high point in n1
From now on I'll take everything I learned from sng and take it to the future. For the people who meet on a long journey, I will surely be grateful," sng is a really good school!" and I will praise you.
Everything in the last two years is an irreplaceable treasure.
Thank you so much."
