April 27th 2022:  International students after qurantine will be joining in class !

Kyushu Eisu Gakkan Japanese Language School was established in 1951 in the centre of Fukuoka city.      
Among many Japanese language schools for foreigners in Japan, we have got approval only in Kyushu as a designated school for the preparatory education course by the Japanese government that the students of our school can get two years college student status.

In studying in "University preparatory courses", Japanese language classes, Japanese affairs classes and basic subjects in fundamental education (math, science, English and world history) are included. It will help international students to get higher scores in the EJU test (Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students).

Besides, we also have "Japanese Language course". The students are aiming to advance to postgraduate schools in Japan or to acquire Japanese language skills by four Japanese skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) and Japanese culture. The total enrollment limit is 600 students in the Japanese language department.

Other than studies, we support overseas students by counselling for their lives, part-time jobs and other problems from entrance to graduation. Even though, after graduation, we cooperate with universities students go on their studies to support our graduates for making them feel studying in Japan has been very content and unforgettable period of their life experience.

Q1. Is there any age limited for the course?

A1. We have no age limited for Japanese Language Course.

      If you are high school graduate student, and plan to enter Japanese university, please apply within 5 years after your graduation.


Q2. Can I do some part-time job while studying in Japan?

A2. As a student, you are allowed to work up to 28 hours per week (and up to 40 hours during long holidays). First you must get a permission from the immigration office “Shikakugai-katsudokyoka” (Engaging in Activities other than Status Qualification).

Q3. Can I study Japanese language from Hiragana at Kyushu Eisu Gakkan?

Basically, "No." 
As a requirement for student visa admission in Japan, you need either "pass N5 in JLPT" or "finish 150 hours in studying Japanese language at a Japanese language institution in your country. 

Once you acquired student visa and came to Japan, you start joining in class by your Japanese language level. For the first few weeks, we offer lessons to review Hiragana, Katakana, greetings and so on, before moving on to official lesson with textbook. 

Some students in the past, nonetheless, did not understand Hiragana or Katakana - even though 150 hours Japanese course were completed in their countries. For this kind of case, you might want to come and see us teachers after class to have extra studies. 

Q0. Where is Kyushu Eisu Gakkan located?

We are in the centre of Fukuoka city! 
Well-access both from Tenjin centre and Hakata centre. 

Fukuoka (福岡市Fukuoka-shipronounced is the sixth-largest city in Japan, the second-largest port city after Yokohama, and the capital city of Kyushu, Japan. The city is built along the shores of Hakata Bay, and has been a center of international commerce since ancient times. The area has long been considered the gateway to the country, as it is the nearest point among Japan's main islands to the Asian mainland.

As of 2015, Fukuoka is Japan's sixth largest city, having passed the population of Kobe. In July 2011, Fukuoka surpassed the population of Kyoto. Since the founding of Kyoto in 794, this marks the first time that a city west of the Kansai region has a larger population than Kyoto.
