I came to Meros in July last year after studying Japanese for six months in Korea. The reason I chose here is that there is Korean speaking teacher in Meros and Meros has a variety of language courses that are suitable for each person, so if I choose EJU course, I thought it will be helpful to me.
The more I studied at Meros, the more I felt that coming to Meros was the best choice in my life. First, the textbook and class contents were so good. Each chapter covers a variety of topics about Japan society, and it is designed to learn reading, listening, grammar, writing and speaking together. I also talked a lot about topics with class mates from various countries. I learned a lot of common sense from talking and it was also helpful to the EJU writing test and interview test.
And I got a lot of help about my life in Japan, applications and interview test for entering university. Above all, Meros has many programs such as volunteer, visiting high schools, and lectures from many companies. I hope you to participate many programs actively so meet many Japanese people and experience many things you could experience only in Meros!!

I was able to pass the exam of my desired school because of Meros. Because of the language barrier I was so nervous when I first came to Japan. However, I overcame my fear by taking advices from teachers at Meros.Meros has a lot of information about Art schools and also there is an Art class which helped me a lot. Since I had no experience of studying art before the Art class helped me a lot. A year and half went by quickly. I’m glad that I achieved my goal in the end. It’s not only that my Japanese has improved a lot but also living away from my family made me more mature.
Even though I had a lot of difficulties along the way I overcame all of them. Now, I’m ready to step forward to pursue my dreams. I’m so glad that I came to Japan and chose to study at Meros. Thank you all for all of your helps.

The two years that I spent as a student of Meros Language School can be considered as the most valuable experience I have ever had in my life. I was able to develop not only Japanese language skills, but also my knowledge regarding Japanese culture, by experiencing the Japanese life as a foreign student.Moreover, I could make a lot of friends from many foreign countries. And I could develop my knowledge about different cultures around the world. It can be considered as the first step to expose my self to the world.Further, I had the opportunity to learn under excellent and dedicated teachers at Meros Language School. Under their guidance, I could develop language knowledge as well as my ability to face challenges in life. Words fail me to thank those teachers enough, for being with me from the beginning to the end.
Finally, as a past student of this school, I would like to invite you all to come to Meros Language School with your own dreams and try your best to find the best within you.

How much do you know about Japan? For example, Japanese traditional culture, animation, automobile and electronic product, etc… I guess that you know something about Japan even if you have never been to Japan. But, once you study in Japan, there are a lot of things that are beyond your expectation. It is very interesting and fun to study in Japan.
Each student should have a different way of studying in Japan but all the teachers are very kind and whenever you have concerns, they will advise you so all the problems will be solved. You can make lots of friends from various countries and experience cross-cultural communication and moreover, you can broaden your mind. You might think that commodity price in Japan is a little bit high but through part-time job, you are able to improve your Japanese level and have a good experience as well as to cover cost of living.
April 2018Entered Meiji University, Law Faculty
I spent 2 years at Meros, it was not only memories but also a part of my life. It was a pleasure to meet many teachers and friends. I had so much fun with group discussion during classes, especially, the communication with other international students. I and other students from China introduced our culture and China’s current status to both students and teachers from our perspective. I think that’s the one of the most enjoyable memories. Now, I’m looking forward to start my new life in university. Not only to make a lot of Japanese friends, but also to share the same interests.
I couldn’t appreciate more of all the helps from teachers at Meros, and I don’t think any word can describe my feelings right now. At the end, good luck to all of you at Meros.
Ms. NGUYEN THI TUYET ANH（Vietnam）
April 2018 Entered DAIICHI ELECTRONICS CO., LTD
My goal was to find a job in Japan after graduating from Meros Language School. I participated in a lot of orientations and interviews (about 20 companies) while I was studying Japanese for 1 year and 9 months at Meros. Finally, I could get a job offer from my desiered company. And I am going to start working there as an internation sales staff in April 2018.
It is not easy to find a job in Japan. It is not only that the style is different from my home country but also I frequently had concerns about expiration date of visa. Therefore, it is recommended that you should be prepared earlier otherwise you might not be able to make it. Futhermore, it is nessesary that you have strong and positive mind. When you struglle and fail, you have to try to improve yourself without giving up. For exapmple, “why doesn’t this company hire me?”, “How should I answer to this question in order to pass?” etc… If you don’t give up to the last, I’m sure that you will be successful.
It was lucky for me that I chose Japan and Meros Language School. What is most important to find a job in japan is of course Japanese skills. So, I could not have done it without lessons at Meros and support from my teachers. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

I came to Japan three years ago to find something worth living for. I studied Japanese language, culture and manner under the teachers at Meros for two years. I became a friend with many people from various countries. Interacting with my friends from lots of different countries was the most enjoyable thing. I came to Japan and found something worth living for. Three years of experience in Japan gifted my life to me. I’d like to express my gratitude to Japan, Meros, and my teachers.

I came here to study design of Japan. At first, I couldn’t speak Japanese very well and it was hard to explain what I want to say. Since my Japanese is not good enough, I failed to enter Tama Art University in 2012. So, I studied conversational Japanese very hard at Meros. I wasn’t good at talking in Japanese, so I tried to speak in Japanese as much as I can. I could become a friend with people from other countries. I enjoyed talking with them and my conversational Japanese was gradually improved as I talked with them. Thanks to the teachers at Meros, I could enter Tama Art University. I’m grateful for Meros teachers’ commitment.

Employed in Thailand
I started studying Japanese at a University in Thailand. But my Japanese was not good enough when I graduated. To improve my Japanese skill, I decided to study at Meros. I certainly felt nervous at a new environment first, but I never say something like “I’m alone in the world”. Yeah, I was quite anxious at first, but it was okay once I got used to ;) My friends and teachers helped or advised me when I was in trouble. I truly thank them.
Furthermore, classes at Meros are designed for students and you can choose classes that fit you. This is one fine thing at Meros.

One year experience at Meros was truly good. There are varieties of teachers, and they make studying Japanese more interesting.. They supported not only our language training but also our dairy life. Since Meros holds many events for art students, I strongly suggest studying at Meros for the students hoping to get into an art university. And also, students of Meros have a number of opportunities to visit Japanese high school. You can make great memories. Please enjoy your international students’ life at Meros!

It is already hard enough to go abroad and stay in an unfamiliar place and environment, and it is going to be harder to go for your dreams. Nevertheless, I believe you can exceed your limits and open up your future when you decide to come to study Japan and determine to overcome the difficulties.
And all the teachers of Meros will kindly teach you various things and help you out with diligence. I was also in their care a lot. Whatever may happen in the future, my memories of working hard with the help of the teachers and my friends will be a treasure for life.

I entered Meros to study in a graduate school. I could study Japanese and brush up my ability in Meros. The Japanese language course let me study Japanese from basic. In the college course, I could prepare for entering a graduate school. Furthermore, there are classes such as culture classes and so on, and I could get fruitful lectures everyday.
Meros supported not only your study but also life in Japan and for getting your VISA.
When I came to Japan, I went through culture shock, homesick and depressed sometime, but people in Meros always looked after me.
In Meros, I was an only Mexican, but the teachers and staffs gave me worm supports and I could spend enjoyable student life without worry.
Hu Jing (China)
When I first came to Japan, I was full of anxiety. They were teachers of Meros who helped me at that time and I soon found myself enjoying days in Meros. ”Studying is fun”. I learned this phrase through studying in Meros. There are unique teachers, kind classmates, good supports from administrative staffs and variety of courses outside of the language classes. When I look back the days in Meros, I feel this a year and a half language training gives me shining and precious experiences. I met a lot of people, went through various experiences, and made good memories. I am still on the way to achieve my goal, but I can say that the days in Meros will be a treasure in my life. Have a dream and go forward! I believe Meros open up the door of your dream.
Chi Shanshan (China)
Chuo University Graduate School
I would not understand the true meaning of “independence” if I didn’t come to Japan. Furthermore, if I didn’t choose to study Japanese in Meros, I wouldn’t have a good enjoyable life. Since staying abroad isn’t that easy, acquiring high level of Japanese proficiency is very important to get used to Japanese society and life. When I first came to Japan, I thought my Japanese is good enough and I could study Japanese by myself. At that time, entering graduate school was the most important thing for me, but things didn’t go smoothly. Thanks to the teachers of Meros, I understood it was a big mistake to try to achieve my aim in a hurry. They taught me that if I accumulate knowledge step by step, I can achieve good results at last. Especially, it was helpful to take selective classes for those who want to enter a graduate school. Thanks to the dedicate lectures from the teachers in Meros, I could pass the entrance examination of a graduate school. With the help of the teachers of responsibility, I could go on to the graduate program of my first choice.
Though what I can do is to appreciate their help, my gratitude won’t be disappear after the graduation of Meros.

Threre are three things that I want to say to the students who is preparing for the entrance exams: be confident, do not stop thinking, and keep making effort.
It is difficult to prepare for the entrance exams when you are overseas. Sometimes you lose confident, are worried, and want to quite everything, but please don’t give up. If you believe yourself and keep trying, then you will find yourself laughing at last.
Once you decide to study abroad I want you to think about what your goal is and what you should do for achieving it. After deciding what you want to do, keep thinking about it and develop it. If you can do this, you won’t be deterred by any criticisms form the others.
Last but not the least, you should continue to persevere with study. You can’t get anything if you don’t make any effort even if you get strong supports from your teachers. I want you to spend days in abroad, which is not everybody can do, without regret.

When I first decided to study abroad, I was worried about the classes, life, human relations and so on. Although I had a hard time at first, I soon started enjoying life in japan as teachers in Meros were always looking after me. The atmospheres of the classes are better than I expected and I enjoyed studying with my classmates. I made progress step by step and got used to life in a foreign country. Supposing you are still worried, how about having a little more courage and starting a new life in Japan. You can surely find it more interesting than you imagine now.
Maciej Jacek (Poland)
Return to country
Since I had been interested in Japanese literature and culture, I started studying Japanese. When I really started staying in Japan, my life became full of surprises because there are a lot of things that was different from my expectation. Every day, there were challenges and difficulties for a foreigner who speaks a different language and has a different way of thinking. But now, I’ve got used to the language and acquired skills to stay in Japan. I had a great experience since there were kind classmates, teachers, and strong solidarity in the class. Also I enjoyed the school excursion, party and other events that school offered. I feel entering Meros was a good choice.
