Students' voice

  • "I enjoy my lessons very much and I am happy with my progress. My teacher is very good and so are the materials we use in class. The office staff are also always friendly and helpful."
  • "MLC has the best facilities, schedule flexibility, cost level of all the school I visited."
  • "MLC seemed very organized with both a written and an oral level test to ensure I’d be placed properly, and the trial lesson was helpful to understand what to expect. I also liked how MLC matched both my level of Japanese, and my schedule for a group class."
  • "Good, my teacher is really nice and patient."
