~ With a sense of mission ~
  This photo was taken at Ayala Mall in Cebu, Philippines last August 2017. I was happy that I was able to finish studying English and took pictures with the local kids. During our time together, I found out that they couldn't attend elementary school for financial reasons and the situation will be repeated when these children become parents.

      In Japanese society, the high school enrollment rate is 98.8% and the university enrollment rate is 54.4% (FY2020 Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's Basic School Survey), which is high. After graduation, Japanese can easily get a job as a full-time employee. We can also get married, have a family, get a mortgage, buy a car, save money and plan your life. Furthermore, it can be assumed that a similar life can be achieved in the next generation of children.

        “Why is it so difficult to walk in life just because they were born in a different place?"

I was aware of the unequal reality, I felt that my heart was torn and at that time, I vividly remembered my strong determination that I should definitely change this situation.

It has been almost five years since that encounter with the local kids in Cebu. I was inspired and decided to open a Japanese-Language institution. The purpose is to teach Filipinos the Japanese language and provide them with a chance to change their lives.

      Our company aims to help Japanese language learners become proficient in the language and aim to pass the N2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) in two years. If you can acquire N2, you will have more freedom to choose your profession not only in the Philippines but also in Japan. Depending in your area of expertise, for example, as an English teacher or engineer, you will be able to earn the same income as the Japanese people. Moreover, like them you will have the opportunity to be promoted and have the right to receive equal benefits.
Learning Japanese is not easy. However, please take it firmly in your chest.

  “There is a world that can only be seen by those who have studied hard”

Grab a better life with us.
As a professional group that teaches Japanese, we will always do our best to support your growth.
