Our Biwako school staff "values each one of you." As we give you full support so that you will be able to achieve your goals, we encourage you to come here and study at Biwako school.

Leaning language is at the same time experiencing its culture and knowing about it.That gives you to see cultural diversity and broaden your world.That's why I also like to lean languages.When living in Japan, I wish you go outside of school and feel "real" Japanese culture and language. You will be able to acquire rich Japanese and break out of your shell by expanding your world. And of course, our school provides curriculums that give you to have an opportunity to discover a variety of new things.Not only leaning Japanese language, also you can gain knowledge and common sense for working in Japan. We will do our very best to support KLA students who are going to be out in Japanese society in future.
