At Aichi Kotonoha Academy, we are aware that students arrive in Japan cherishing their dreams for their future. We are committed to providing such promising students with an optimal learning environment in which they can engage in their Japanese language study without worry and work hard together with their peers.
Also, we offer our students various opportunities to experience authentic Japanese culture and tradition through school events and out-of-school activities. Cultural exchanges with the local people also aid students to learn about the people’s mindset and the lifestyle in Japan.
Alongside a number of these opportunities, our excellent school staff helps all students maximize their potential in a cosy, safe environment for study and living. We particularly value each student’s character and capacity for individually tailored learning and life support.
