Here at the Asian International Japanese Language School, we strive for our students' success. We have many systems in place so that we can confidently help you settle in to your life in Japan, and anything you may need during your stay and after graduation.
During your orientation, we will discuss not only your academic path and studies, but also prepare you for daily life in Japan. We support you with procedures at city hall, the post office, getting a bank account, immigration, cell phones and house utilities.
Studying a language isn't just about learning the words, we will also teach you about cultural norms, etiquette, society standards and share experienced insights on how to and where to enjoy your life in Japan!
We provide affordable, subsidised accommodation for our students. Moving to a new country isn't always easy, there's a lot of challenges to face and that's why we're there to offer options and help you get settled in.
There's no better way to get to know your peers and build instant friendships, and share study insights than sharing a dorm. We have an affiliated dormitory where 2-4 students share a room. Each room is fully furnished which allows our students to start living in their new home from the moment of arrival. You can expect to pay between 20,000 to 30,000 JPY per month, plus entrance and utility fees.
If you're a person who enjoys their own space we will help you to find somewhere for you to make home for your time here. Get away from the crowds and study in your own time.
Dive right in to a Japanese lifestyle and stay with one of our trusted Japanese families who will open their homes to you and give you a true cultural experience.
