CONCEPT

Waseda is a place of education not only for Japanese. It is a dream destination for international students who come to Japan to study hard with their great dreams.
With the aim of becoming “A bridge between the world and Japan” Waseda Keifuku Language Academy was founded in 2009 in Waseda-Natsumezaka.
“立志在日本、放眼干世界。追求真善美、造福全人類。”
This is a message that I want to convey to all international students.
“With a learning heart in Japan, have the whole world in view.
(Because of the convenience of the Internet and digitization is pursued today)
Pursuing truth, goodness and beauty while valuing culture.
Become a rich person that contribute to the people of the world.” is what it means.
Study abroad is only possible if you have the courage to take on the challenge of jumping into a new environment. In order to reach something new, you need to be prepared to give up something away.
To any courageous student who wants to study in Japan with consciousness and aspiration.We will do our best to support you.

In Japan, there is a saying called” money was scooped/stolen”, and the word ” scoop /stolen” is considered as bad luck.
During congratulatory event such as Yuino (exchange of engagement gifts) and weddings, the word “Hold/Scoop” is changed to “Encounter”. The meaning of the word does not change, another word is used to replace it only, and this is often used in Japanese style conversion.it.

MESSAGE
My major of a university was a law. After graduation from university, I come to Japan in order to study company law. When
I just came to Japan, I did not know even a hiragana letter. I studied Japanese from zero and passed N2 in one year and N1
in one and half years.

Two years later, I entered graduate school of law in Meiji University. The fact that I entered Waseda Keifuku Language Academy
was lucky for me. Every teacher is very serious and responsible. The staff gave our students a lot of help. I graduated from
Meiji University and am working as a Japanese lawyer in KING&WOOD MALLESONS in Chinese now. I thought it was good to choose
Waseda Keifuku Language Academy at that time. I’ll borrow this chance and appreciate to the person who told variously. I
use this opportunity to appreciate the people whom taught me many things. I could pass Japanese-language proficiency test
and a graduate school entrance examination via study for about one year.

Destination School: Kyoto University, Graduate School of Economics

MESSAGE
My university is the XI’AN JIAOTONG University. Before coming to Japan, I was studying Japanese a little. I could be accustomed
to Japanese life by teacher’s attentive support at Waseda Keifuku Language Academy.

It is to have deepened the bond with the teacher and classmate to be important to me almost as same as that I was able to
enter a graduate school. That is a memory in my life which isn’t forgot.
One year was short, but the joys and sorrows became
the value to be left for life.

MESSAGE
I went to Japan soon after I graduated from YANBIAN University in China. I was supported by the teachers and classmate at
Waseda Keifuku Language Academy and I was able to spend substantial one and a half years. Not only I studied Japanese at
Waseda Keifuku Language Academy, but also prepared graduate school entrance examination.

Parallel to the Japanese guidance of the teacher, in learning the knowledge about the graduate school examination at the
same time, one and half years was enough to pass the graduate school entrance examination that I longed for.
I learned not only the knowledge about the biology (Basic Physiology, Organic Agriculture, Feed Crop, Plant Factory), but
also the knowledge of the business administration in Tokyo University. I had two majors, and it became the foundation of
the present work and was able to do knowledge wealthily.
All the foreign students who came to Japan are excellent. I continue
working hard at putting good results carefully between time of the irreplaceable learning in the school to forthcoming everybody
from now on, and I pray for a dream coming true.
Please takes care of time of the irreplaceable learning in the school to
forthcoming everybody from now on,
I continue working hard at gaining good results,
and I pray for a dream coming true.
