"@Gaijinpot: For students who want to establish a career in Japan, classes at ARC will get you to a professional level."




ARC Academy Japanese Language School was established in 1986 and since that time we have had students from over 50 countries study with us.

Since there are students of different mother tongues, the language used for communication will naturally be Japanese. This increases your opportunity to use Japanese and helps you improve your language abilities.

No matter which level you are at, we aim for you to be able to communicate in Japanese as best you can at your level. You can learn functional Japanese that can really be used in real life and at work. We also have a variety of courses available for our students, whether your goal is to work in Japan, continue your education, or just take a study tour!


Available from a JLPT N2 level, ARC Academy’s Business Course will give you the set of skills you need to secure a full-time job in Japan.
