Studying at ASIAN ACADEMY is our start.

Voice of graduated student

image_04.jpgThe reason I chose ASIAN ACADEMY is because I heard this school took good care of everything for each one of the students. At first I didn’t know anything and I was worried all alone in a foreign country of Japan. This school gave me good supports in communication and living in Japan as soon as the school started. Thanks to that, I could spend my time at this school smoothly and happily. All of my classmates listened to the teacher and studied hard which motivated me as well. All of the teachers were hard working and informative. Their lessons were very easy to understand and I really enjoyed them. If I didn’t understand well and I personally asked some questions, they taught me hard until I fully understood. They didn’t only teach me what I hadn’t understood, they also taught me how to study which really helped me. Two years at ASIAN ACADEMY went quickly like an arrow but very meaningful for me.
As a graduate of ASIAN ACADEMY, I would like to challenge various things from now on to be able to be a model for up coming students.

image_08.jpgWhile I was at ASIAN ACADEMY I studied hard working part-time and I could pass my university which I had really wanted to be enrolled. Looking back my two years at ASIAN ACADEMY, the reason I could study hard as well as I work part-time was the teachers all considered my situation. At class time, teachers explained bits and pieces in the textbooks or drills well which were easy to understand and fast to master. Everyday we had quizzes and by solving them I naturally got accustomed to studying. When I passed the entrance examination of my university, I really felt I was lucky to be able to study at this school. I really thought as you effort, the result follows. Especially I was moved with the teachers. They listened to me, they encouraged me, they supported me when I was depressed. All of friends of mine were also gave me smile when I was in trouble. I really thank to ASIAN ACADEMY for giving me heaps of experience and getting me grown. Whatever happens in my future, I’ll never forget “Dream + Effort = Present” and I’ll keep paying an effort.
