Language school in Kyoto?

Hi everyone.

I'm Kika and I'm from Greenland, I've always wanted to go to Japan to study Japanese languages and now I finally got permission from my parents few months ago.

But now I'm having a problem to find a school in Kyoto, I want a long term which is 2 years and I'm wondring if you guys can help me.

I really hope you can help me.

And I'm sorry if I have posted this in a wrong section.

Thanks

Kika

Re: Language school in Kyoto?

Oh and the school here in Greenland is only 11 years and most language schools says that the person who want to apply have to had 12 years school education. Will it be a problem?

Re: Language school in Kyoto?

There is Kyoto gaidai in the Western part of Kyoto and there is Kansai Gaidai in Hirakata which is between Kyoto and Osaka.

Here are a few links. I'm not sure if they are what you are looking for though.

Re: Language school in Kyoto?

I'd look into getting into a university program. You might call your local Japanese consulate.

As a language teacher myself, I associate commercial language schools with self-serving/very poor administration and teaching. There are exceptions, but they are extrememly rare, and I've never heard of one of these exceptions in Japan (but I never lived in Kansai.)

Good luck.

Okies, I'll let you guys know if I get any good news.

But doesn't most of the apply deadlines are in june or something? or is it october? well, they might have different deadlines right? if yes, I'd be lucky if I go to a school.
