"Japanese life has been great. The tasks and challenges you will face have been chosen for a reason by the NILS staff, who are always there to guide you and help you learn from your mistakes. In turn, your language skills and vocabulary will flourish and grow rapidly.

I arrived at NILS Campus with a very low or almost no understanding of the Japanese language, barely knowing Hiragana and Katakana. But in less than two months, I can politely greet local people in the street and ask how they are, I can ask what the price of something is at a store, even dates and time I understand well. Thanks to the hard work and continued effort from the school staffs, my Japanese has greatly improved and will continue to do so in this warm welcoming environment."

James, Canada

"I think the level of the class I was assigned to is just right for me, even if I did not join it from the start and have a different background from most of the other students.  The teachers are all wonderful and I particularly like the fact they take turns to teach a class, as they each have their own qualities and it gives more variety to the lessons.  Ogori is a nice place to study as it is very calm.

My stay here is already coming to an end, and if I regret that I cannot stay more, I am very thankful to the school, its staff and all the students for that rewarding experience."

- Charles, France
