Courses in Kyoto

Post by charnette » Thu 08.21.2008 10:44 am

Hi
New to this site, I'm hoping that I'll find what I'm searching for here.

I want to go to Kyoto and study japanese for a while, a couple of months. I've googled information, but can only seem to find University studies and such. I'm not studying for credits, but for learning the language, hence I don't need more than a diploma when I'm finished. :)

So my question is - do anyone of you out there (here) know of any language courses in Kyoto (it HAS to be Kyoto)? Plz, let me know.
All information is more than welcome!
Thanks

First, welcome to the forum!

Second, you say you don't want to go to a university, but want a diploma. In most cases, accredited universities/schools are the only ones that can give out diplomas. Perhaps you meant a certificate of completion?

What are you planning to do about a visa? There are some language schools that give out student visa, but most of them (I believe) are through universities. There are non-university accredited language schools that can also supply visas, but they may be more difficult to find.

I ran a search on google for "kyoto language school" and found a large number of links.

There's the Kyoto YMCA http://www.kyotoymca.or.jp/language/japanese/
as well as the Japanese Language school database. http://www.aikgroup.co.jp/j-school/engl ... /kinki.htm

Happy searching!
