Description JCLI Japanese Language School

JCLI Language School (main buildings are located in Tokyo in several districts of the city) has been successfully operating for more than 30 years. Programs for the study of the Japanese language for students of any category, of any age and level of initial education are developed here: warm and friendly, the international situation in the school is ideal for rapid, productive language progress. Teachers and students communicate fairly informally, freely, which improves the effectiveness of classes and increases the comfort of learning. In the differentiated classes corresponding to your level of knowledge, learning will be not only interesting, but also comfortable, easy.

The first building of the school was opened in November 1980 - it was a school of Japanese language and culture in Nishi-Shinjuku (district of Tokyo). Two years later, courses for teachers of Japanese as a foreign language began to work, and in 1989 the educational institution acted as the main sponsor of the Association of Schools for the Study of the Japanese Language and the Promotion of Japanese Culture. In February 2008, another branch was built - in Takadanobaba - the school changed its name to JCLI, in 2013 the main campus was moved to the north of the Shinjuku district, and in 2014 the campus became even larger, more modern and more perfect (new classrooms appeared , an audience, a hostel).
