About Us

Our Philosophy
and Mission

We practice Japanese language education as intercultural education. While our behavior and ways of thinking are greatly influenced by our own cultures, intercultural communication does not work when we stick to our own way of thinking. Usually, we are unaware of “culture,” value or way of thinking as something natural as air. At Communica Institute, we aim to be aware of it and to share it. Our aim is to build a foundation on which, while cherishing your own culture, you can get over its boundary, find a new way and build a third culture by synergy.

  • Know thyself.
  • Learn through experience.
