Greeting from Academic Affairs Chief

Akino Miyashita

Matsumoto International Japanese Language School's teacher team uses our own audiovisual teaching materials to conduct communicative classes.

In beginner classes, we aim to improve conversation skills by using PowerPoint. In intermediate classes, we study well-balanced skills of Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, and from in intermediate to advanced classes, we comprehensively study the 4 skills and aim to pass Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) N2 and N1.

We also conduct classes in which students can experience Japanese culture through active learning and cultural activities.

The Feature of Our Education

From "Understanding Japanese"  to  "Using Japanese"

Our goal is not only understanding the content of each classes, but also letting students think "What can I do by using what I learned today".

Well-balanced Curriculum of "Reading", "Writing", "Listening", "Speaking"

With the mindset of that reading and writing are also the way of communication, we always conduct interactive environment in classes. Let's communicate a lot with multinational classmates and teachers in the lively classes!

Well-developed Audiovisual Teaching Materials

MIJS teacher team developed our own audiovisual teaching materials. A large screen monitor is set in each classroom, and we conduct easy-to-understand and fun classes by using slides with many illustrations and sounds. 

Preparations for JLPT and EJU

Japanese Language Proficiency Test and Examination for Japanese University are very important for students who are aiming for higher study in Japan. Prior to the exams, we conduct exam preparation classes and mock exams.
