In May 1960, Dr. Ryuji Hayashi founded EASTWEST Global Education which includes Futaba College of Foreign Languages (FUTABA). THE CERTIFIED VISA PROXY STATUS was offered by the Ministry of Justice in September 1989.
The students of the FUTABA aim to pursue education in Japan by enrolling at colleges, universities and post-graduate schools.
To meet significantly different needs, we teach not only Japanese but also the Japanese culture, customs and manners to deepen the understanding of different cultures.
Moreover, we offer close, detailed guidance for those who plan to continue their education from choosing a school to entrance exams. As a result, our students are able to successfully enroll at public, private universities and colleges.
Also, a considerably high number of students from FUTABA pass theJapanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) every year. Our experienced teachers always make the classes easy to understand for the students, as well as hold private conferences concerning the student's career goals pertaining to after graduation which helps to build a good relationship.
For the students strugging to adust to life in a foreign land, we are willing to offer support.
