@Gaijinpot: "Toyo Language School makes it easy to focus on your studies and reach your desired language level by facilitating your stay in Japan!"


Toyo Language School is located in the peaceful residential area of Nishi-Kasai in east Tokyo. This area is well suited for students who are looking for a quiet environment to study in, while still having easy access to the more central areas of Tokyo! Courses are available for all levels of Japanese student, but Toyo will most benefit those who are serious about taking their skills to the next level.

Toyo’s classes take a comprehensive approach to make sure that students are well balanced in speaking, writing, listening and reading. Not only are the courses themselves crafted to improve a student’s overall Japanese level, but the school also has their own unique “Japanese monitoring system” that helps you make sure that you achieve your language learning goals. When you get to the school, you will take a test that will check your Japanese skills in a variety of ways. Then, you set a goal for yourself and test yourself at the beginning of each semester. While studying abroad in Japan, it can be easy to get caught up in things other than studying, but with Toyo Language School’s amazing support, you will be able to get closer to achieving the level of Japanese you’ve always wanted to attain.

In addition to study support, the school also offers an amazing living support system for their students. Living in a foreign country can be exciting but also comes with its own fair share of trials and difficulties. Toyo Language School tries to make living abroad as comfortable as possible for their students by offering things like free medical and dental appointments at local clinics. If your Japanese is not yet at the level where you can make an appointment on your own, there is a Teams chat room where each student can ask their staff for help with setting up the appointments!
