What others are saying

“My wife and I are so impressed with the curriculum here; it is really well thought out, and fits our needs perfectly. The teachers have been wonderful; enthusiastic, patient, and always professional. As newcomers to Japan, we especially appreciated the help we got with every detail of getting settled (apartment, bank accounts, etc) and our ‘adoption’ by the other missionaries in Sapporo, many of who have valuable insight to pass on from their church planting experiences in Japan. It is great to live in the local community, talk with Japanese people every day, and attend a Japanese church on the weekend. JLCC is ideal for language and culture learning.”

Dan Hoisington – Pioneers Japan

“We wanted to do a short-term course and JLCC tailored the lessons just to meet our needs. Great teacher, conducive learning environment, reasonable fees. I’d recommend JLCC to anyone who REALLY wants to do some serious Nihongo (Japanese).”

Wendy, Miyagi JET teacher, 3 week intensive group course

“I have got so much out of my time at JLCC. The center is bright and cheerful, and the theme of planting seeds and bearing fruit very inspiring. The teachers are friendly and dedicated and the atmosphere at school is one of encouragement and fellowship. Praise God for what He is doing through this fantastic facility.”

Dawn Bolton – Japan Christian Link

“Not only were the classes tailored to fit my schedule and my language abilities, but the low student-teacher ratio was perfect for practicing conversational, not just grammatical, Japanese. It was definitely a privilege to be able to study in a Christian environment!”

Tiffany, Jet

“A streamlined course taught by enthusiastic teachers.”

Trina Minamizawa (Venezuela)

“My wife and I have appreciated our time of language study at JLCC. It has been most helpful in learning the Japanese language, and our instructor has been enjoyable to study under. Thank you for offering this valuable service for other agencies.”

Jonathan Snow – Free Will Baptist

“Teachers take the teachable moments and run with them.”

Deborah Winans, Japan Baptist Mission
