COMMUNICA INSTITUTE -Japanese Language School in Kobe-

General Japanese / University and college preparation course
(6 months - 2 years / College student VISA)


This is a course for those who plan to enter a Japanese college and university. You can choose from four different learning periods (6 months - 2 years). Classes start in April, July, October, and January.


  1. We understand that knowing how to communicate your own "uniqueness" is an integral part of learning Japanese. Free yourself of the model conversations in textbooks, and learn how to say what you really want to say using Japanese from the very beginning. Here, you can do just that without losing your own "uniqueness".
  2. In Japanese communication, both "correctness" (in grammar and pronunciation) and "oral fluency" are important. We can help you learn Japanese "appropriately" from both points of view.
  3. In intermediate level classes and above with our Pre-college course, we shift our focus more to academic Japanese necessary to study and do research in Japanese colleges. It is not just for passing entrance exams, but to allow yourself to truly enjoy your college life as well.
  4. We help you acquire the ability of autonomous learning so that you can lead a successful life at your colleges or university. In some classes, we offer "seminar" style lessons where students choose their own themes, make their own plans and go along with them. All of our staff will support you to act more autonomously in the classroom as well as outside the classroom.


Classes start from one of eight steps, i.e. step 8 (beginner) to step 1 (advanced),  with each step lasting 3 months. You can be promoted to the next step after passing the examination at the end of each term. ...more
