A school with high standards, which is modern and attractive, awaits you for your Japanese classes in the centre of the capital. For more than twenty years, KAI Language School has been accompanying students in their learning of this fascinating language which is Japanese. You will find experienced teachers and a high-performance infrastructure in our partner school. The atmosphere in the spacious classrooms is serene. Common areas invite you to take a break in the company of the other international participants. More than 30 nationalities are represented! Enjoy the sun on the terrace and take advantage of the multiple activities proposed in order to improve your knowledge of the language and the culture of the country. You will be able to let off steam in a large sports complex in Shinjuku, right beside the school, or else go to the swimming pool to relax after classes. Less than a quarter of an hour away on foot, the Waseda University and its documentation centres are open to international students. Our partner school is located close to the very lively district of Shinjuku where you will find numerous restaurants, cafés, cinemas, shops and shopping centres. Therefore, you will have no problem in getting something to eat or just soaking in the atmosphere of Tokyo. A metro station and the Shinjuku train station are a stone's throw away, and therefore ideal for connecting you to the other districts of this exciting city.

Väldigt rent, väldigt centralt och många olika nationaliteter. Inte många studenter men eftersom jag studerade konversationskurs så var det färre studenter än den traditionella kursen.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja,För att jag fick mycket chans till att prata i allmänhet. Eftersom min nivå var högre än de flesta andra fick jag väldigt mycket egentid med läraren som ökade min förmåga drastiskt. Det ökade från en nivå där jag kunde prata i väldigt lätta meningar med en hel del avbrott till i princip flytande. I slutet hade jag mer japanska vänner än utländska. Jag hade dagar och veckor där jag använde inget annat än Japanska. »
School highlights
« Jag tyckte det var väldigt bra kommunikation mellan lärare och elev. Lärarna var väldigt flexibla, i vissa fall ändrade vi hela lektioner till något som jag föredrog. Väldigt svårt att hitta i andra skolor. »

The activities proposed by our partner school are devoted to discovering the culture and the tradition of Japan. For the most part, they are at an extra charge and allow you to be introduced to the tea ceremony (Sadoo), to calligraphy (Shodoo) and to the art of paper folding (Origami). These activities generally take place twice a week in the school itself. Animated evenings, barbecues, a foray into the mysterious world of Sumo wrestlers and the spectacle of a comba or full-day excursions complete the offer. Moreover, the city of Tokyo and its numerous districts with diverse attractions are a vast territory to be explored. Why not undertake the discovery of Japan in the company of your new friends from the four corners of the world? Clubs, bars, restaurants, shopping centres, entertainment, parks, gardens...everything is different and fascinating. The leisure activities are countless and at the height of your expectations. For shopping also, you won't be left hungry. The most fashionable districts will impress you with the number of shops and boutiques with the latest fashions and vintage clothing, and Ginza, the mecca of Japanese chic, is unmissable. And to finish, don't miss out on the Takarazuka theatre in which the reviews and shows are only given by female artists!
