Staff Introduction

Principal:Yukiji Horiuchi

-The fascination in learning in Nagano Campus- When you decided to study in Japan, I think that you were imagining about yourself studying in country with different cultures and rules, also living alone and being far from your parents. You must also feel a lot of excitement and uneasiness for experiencing a lot of first times in studying overseas. We are going to replace that expectations and uneasiness to “experience and “challenges” and back you up on your student life abroad. Nagano Campus has established a support system so that students can start their new life in Japan smoothly and comfortably. And by becoming more familiar with life here in Japan at an earlier stage, then you will get accustomed to the speed and level of the Japanese language and improve your learning. Our desire is to face students one by one while they are heading towards the “realization of their dreams”. We aim to create a school where students would personally think on their own that they want to study here!

Vice-principal:Takashi Hatada

There are a lot of people who wishes to get a job in Japan or in Japanese company in their own country to be able to make us of their Japanese language skill. So what kind of Japanese speakers are in demand in Japan and the world today? What's required are not people who "can only speak Japanese", but people who "experiences Japanese, understands Japanese and it's people". It can be said that studying abroad is the most ideal method in learning and understand the language, interaction with people, lifestyle rules, common knowledge, manners and etc. MANABI Japanese Language Institute Nagano Campus has lots of opportunities to interact with Japanese people throughout the year such as volunteer activities and fetivals.

MANABI Japanese Language Institute aims on training Japanese "practical skills". For "practical skills" to be trained we will develop a curriculum that will emphasize more on the basics (beginner level), we will also boost the command capability and accuracy while balancing and improving the four skills. In addition, to be able to smoothly move to the intermediate level we establish repetitive learning for students from non-kanji regions. "Practical skills" means getting good results in Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) and Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU). For Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) we conduct intensive review classes and and develop there practical thinking skills 1 month before the exam. For Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU) we do not only conduct Japanese classes but also basic fundamental subjects (general subject and mathematics) We the staff will provide our utmost support for students to be able to devote themselves in studying Japanese with a peace of mind.
