Students from China:
In March 2018, three students from China, (2 male, 1 female) graduated from our school. They enjoyed their school life and were successful in securing places at third level education here in Japan.
Our school currently offers a specially created curriculum for those whose native language is Chinese. The purpose of this curriculum is to obtain Level 1 (N1) and Level 2 (N2) of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Depending on the ability of individual students, even in the case of a student having acquired N2, sometimes further study is required to fully participate in classes. We facilitate such students with Japanese language classes. For those who wish to attend a Japanese university after graduation, we provide tuition in order to help them obtain the necessary Level 1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
Our Japanese Language Instructor for Chinese Students is Toshiyuki Kojima, who has qualifications in the Japanese and Chinese languages as well as holding a PhD.
Students, whose native language is Chinese, wishing to study at Kunori Gakuen Senior High School should contact Mr Kojima, in either Japanese or Chinese, using the address below.
