In response to students’ needs, we offer the following programs.

We are sorry but we do not provide such a service.
Yes, we offer classes for absolute beginners in all the programs--Regular, Part-time and Private Lessons.
A seasoned instructor will suggest a class appropriate for your study objective and level on the basis of a level-check interview. Upon request, he/she will offer advice on the most effective method of learning.
* The student constitution slightly varies, depending on the term.
The Part-time Program (depending on the class)
You pay for the number of class sessions you will attend.
You cannot make a payment by credit card at our office, but you may use PayPal.
If you plan to study for 9 months (3 terms) or longer in the Regular Program, you will be eligible to apply for a student visa. When your application is authorized, the JLI will then apply for your Certificate of Eligibility for Resident Status at the Tokyo Immigration Bureau on your behalf.
Yes, both the Regular and the Part-time Programs accept students in midstream, barring classes that have already reached maximum capacity. In such a case, you pay for the number of class sessions you will actually take.
We will transfer you to another class commensurate with the level and content of your class. You will pay the balance if the new class has a higher tuition.
It is a 5-minute walk from Yotsuya Station on the JR Chuo-Sobu Line or Tokyo Metro’s Marunouchi and Namboku Lines.
JLI will participate in the Yotsuya Station area redevelopment project, and in October 2019 we will move into a newly reconstructed building at the same location as our former building. Therefore, from January 2016 to September 2019, we will relocate to a temporary school building north of the redevelopment site constructed by Urban Renaissance Agency (UR).
Although it is a temporary school building, it will be fully-equipped with AV equipment, internet, elevator accessibility, and more.
Our temporary school building is well-protected against earthquakes, meeting the design and construction standards required by law.
We don’t have a canteen or kiosk, but you may bring your own snacks and beverages. No eating or drinking is permitted in the computer rooms, hallways and stairways.
Smoking is prohibited on school premises, and there is no smoking area.
There is no parking space. Please use public transportation.
There is a parking area for bicycles; however, there is no parking area for motorbikes. If you would like to use the bicycle parking area, please inquire with an office staff member.
We do not have a dormitory. However, we can refer you to a real estate agency that handles apartment houses and guest houses for foreigners.
