Please complete your application as soon as possible. First, complete the placement test. If you are staying at a homestay or apartment share, or have requested an airport pickup, we will ask you for some additional information after you have finished the test..
Select the level check test that best matches your ability level, and complete the test.
If you are a complete beginner student, you don't need to take the test - however, you must learn the hiragana alphabet before starting your study with us.
If the test you select is too easy or too hard, please feel free to switch to a different test partway through. In addition, if the results of your test are very good or very bad, we may ask you to take retake a harder or easier test.
Then, if necessary, follow the next steps to complete your application.
