Work & Study in Japan

The cost of living is high in Japan so we recommend that our students come with a working holiday visa (please check requirements below) and find a part time job to reduce the burden of the cost of everyday expenses. This course is suitable for people who have never studied or only studied limited Japanese and want to reach a level where one can handle day-to-day activities and manage the simple interactions of daily life in commercial and social aspects.
