Kobe International Language School’s teaching method is not about only Japanese, but also about watching over, encouraging, and supporting the growth of each student. When I was lonely in my study abroad life, or when I was busy preparing for entrance exams and felt uneasy, I was able to face difficulties with courage without losing my motivation to learn because my teachers took care of me like my family. I would like to cherish the ability to think and the worldview that I gained from language study abroad.


LIU ZIXUAN Next education
Kobe University, Graduate School of Economics I am researching economics that is what I want to research. What left a deep impression on me from this school is the support I received from my teachers and friends when I decided to continue my education. I was able to enter graduate school in Japan because of studying Kobe International Language School. Now I am researching economics and I think I can take the advantage of the skills I acquired when looking for a job. I hope your dream will also come true.


KAUNG HTIKE Next education
Okayama University, Graduate School My teacher always supports me as a family member! The reason why I was thinking of studying Japanese in Japan is because there were many teachers in my university who have experienced studying abroad in Japan. At Kobe International Language School, I am glad that teachers always support me as a family member in the aspect of both study and dairy life. After graduation, I want to enter a graduate school in Japan and then start my own business in my home country!


Kyoto Sangyo University, Faculty of International Relations It broadened my horizons and I found my destination. At Kobe International Language School, I made friends from abroad and came to understand the culture of other counties, so that my horizons were broadened. That’s how I had an interest in international relations and now my major is International Relations at university and I am studying economics, political science, and so on. In the future, I want to be the bridge between counties and contribute to society.


HOSSAIN SAKAWAT Next education
Osaka Sangyo University
Faculty of Business Administration Department of Business Administration The best school in Japan I had very hard time when I first came to Japan from Bangladesh, because I couldn’t speak Japanese, couldn’t understand anything, and couldn’t do anything by myself. But I was able to pass the N1 JLPT exam and was able to enter Osaka Sangyo University. It is all due to the tireless efforts of the teachers and the support I have received. I didn’t think I was a bright student, and at first, I thought it was impossible, but the teachers didn’t abandon me. My goal is to study the structure of Japanese business so that one day I can start my own company. That’s why I’m studying business administration. Japan deals with all the world’s largest companies, so in the future I want to work for them and learn as much as possible about business. Good luck to all current students. If I can do it, I think anyone can do it. Do your best.

Medical Corporation Iseikai Corporate Headquarters My Journey in JAPAN: From Passion to Profession I completed my language course from Kobe International Language School in 2023 and currently, I’m working at Iseikai Medical Institute as an Application Developer in Information System Department.
My career goal is to secure a position as a software developer in a technology-driven company. Learning Japanese as a foreigner is undoubtedly challenging.
Everything from learning Japanese to getting a job would not have been so easy without the guidance and support of the teachers at my school.
Their unconditional support made me easy to achieve success in my life.
