3 Reasons that makes TCJ’s “Resident Course” different from other schools
Here are 3 reasons why you might choose TCJ’s resident course.
Reason 1: A separate course for foreigners living in Japan exists from the student visa course.
Did you know that the overwhelming majority of the Japanese language schools in Japan only have “Student visa courses”? For a person who wants to learn Japanese but does not require a student visa support, studying in the Student visa course has many issues to name a few.
Issue 1: Too fast-paced
Since the sole purpose of international students is to study Japanese, the student visa courses are very fast-paced! Consequently, if you get mixed in with these classes, you may end up falling behind.
Issue 2: Exam exam exam!
Most international students aspire to enter a Japanese university, graduate school, or vocational school. Therefore, naturally, it may not be suitable for you to study in that student visa course because they are aiming to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) or the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU), or because they have a clear objective.
For these reasons, TCJ decided to establish an entirely independent course for residents in Japan and those who wish to study online from overseas..
Reason 2: TCJ offers a variety of class options to fit your lifestyle and goals.
The " Student Visa Course" must adhere to the requirements set forth by the Immigration Bureau, resulting in limited class options. However, TCJ's "Resident Course" can offer a wider selection of classes to meet your needs.
