    The reason I had an interest in studying at this school was because it had achieved high employment rate of its graduates and offered seminar studies. Discussions with classmates at seminar studies enabled me to enjoy studying, gain Japanese language skill as well as knowledge and pass a lot of qualification exams. Now is the time for graduation, but joining the company is only a starting point for me. I determine to work hard to become a qualified engineer leveraging what I learned at this school.

    Information Processing Course
    Employed at Bip Systems Corporation.

    Although I hardly had the knowledge about information processing when I entered this school, I passed Fundamental Information Technology Engineer Examination in half a year with help from tutors and seminar studies. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who helped me. We must work hard through our own effort because information processing study is wide-ranging and very difficult. Don't give up even if you face difficulties - Keep working hard and you will get it. When you live in Japan, there are also many more difficulties, not limited to studying, but hang in there. If you do it, you can really make it.

    What impressed me.

    Attended Kokusai Kotoba Gakuin, Japanese Language School
    Japan School of Business 21
    Travel Course
    Employed at H.I.S. Co., Ltd.

    I found the seminar studies at this school most beneficial. I heard that foreigners have difficulty making Japanese friends so I was worried but I made friends right after entering this school. My teacher and classmates taught me Japanese and helped me with class material I did not understand. I was able to get a job as well and I owe this to everyone who helped me. I know many foreign students work part-time jobs but if possible, I think you should try to focus on getting a qualification the first year and cut back on part-time jobs.

The number of tourists to Mongolia, my home country, is growing day by day and I believe the tourist industry as well as the hotel industry will have a big effect on the development of Mongolia. My dream is to work in a Japanese company, accumulate experience and in the future build a hotel in my home country.
