The Graduate's Voice Letters from Graduates

Therefore I attentively searched for good schools in which to study.
I was looking for a school that has a good curriculum and an environment that allowed me to continue my studies in the business field after graduation.
Fortunately, I found Kansai College! ‘Listen a lot and speak a lot’ is a jingle in a certain Japanese commercial that everyone living in Japan knows.
Thanks to the fulfilling lessons provided by friendly teachers, I have been able to reach my goals of speaking Japanese.
I went on to continue my studies at Kansai College and I am currently job hunting.
If you are thinking of studying Japanese, choose a school that aims at the motto ‘Listen a lot and speak a lot’
