Japanese Level at Admission / N5
Q.What kind of career path did you take after graduating from TCJ? Also, please tell us the reason why you chose your career path.
I am a 2nd year student at Osaka Tsuji Culinary Arts College, where I majored in management. I had been working in the culinary arts before coming to Japan, and I happened to have an opportunity to travel to Japan. After returning to my country, I had a discussion with my parents and they agreed and I started studying Japanese. Of course, the road to study abroad is not easy, but I was determined and decided to do it until the end.

Q.What are your goals and dreams for the future? Please be as specific as possible.
In the future, I would like to learn about Japanese food culture and hygiene management, and work in a Japanese restaurant. There are countless things I want to learn. You have to keep moving forward until you can be yourself in the culinary world, and as you move forward you have to constantly review the mistakes you've made. These are valuable lessons. Humans can only progress by constantly reflecting on their mistakes.

Q.Please give some advice to students who will join TCJ in the future and current students based on your experience.
From the beginning of TCJ, classes have been divided into different courses and levels, so there is no need to worry. If you come to Japan for the first time, there are many things you don't understand or worry about, but if you have any problems, please talk to the staff at the reception desk. I was at N5 level of NAT when I came to TCJ, and thanks to my teachers, I was able to reach N2 before I graduated. I am grateful for the teachers who took the time to teach me. However, I think that no matter what kind of great teachers you have, your Japanese level will not improve unless you make an effort, so I hope you will do your best.
