  • The Philippines has been lacking behind in Japanese education when compared to other countries like China and Vietnam. As a result, not much focus is given to Filipino overseas workers as they lack the ability to communicate with the Japanese despite being a graduate at Japanese training centers. We believe that this is caused by the lack of knowledge and skill of Japanese instructors in already established schools.

    • To counter the point above, we have assigned a Japanese national with more than 15 years of experience in teaching foreigners Japanese as an instructor that will be handling Daiwa's conversation curriculum. With her guidance, we assure our students that they will be able to receive top-class level of education upon their enrollment in our school.

  • We will be preparing more than 30 courses that tackles on various topics relating to Japan.

  • The conversation curriculum will only cater 30-35 students per batch and each student will pick 20 courses* that they will be enrolling to, with the first course being free.

  • Who will be the target of this course?

    • Passers of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (N4 above)

    • People who aim to work in Japan as Technical Intern Training or Specified Skilled Worker

    • People who work at Japanese companies

    • Individuals who passed an interview from a company designated in Japan and are currently applying for their status of residence

    • People who wish to speak Japanese fluently

    • Japanese language instructors who want to further improve their Japanese 

*It is possible for a student to enroll the remaining 10 courses if he wishes to take them as well
