Kyoshin Language Academy Kyoto-Chuo School


‘Achieve your goal of superior communication skills.’

Located in the heart of Kyoto with easy access to all that this amazing city has to offer, Kyoto Chuo School is a facility where you can get the Japanese skills you need for work and/or higher education, at the same time as applying those skills to immerse yourself in culture and the way of life in Japan.

The school’s international outlook and its new building designed in the traditional ‘Kyoto’ style is indicative of the well-balanced study experience that students are offered at Kyoto Chuo School.


Kyoto Chuo School is proud of its record of equipping students will all the Japanese language ability they need to pass tests and go into the workplace. More than this though, students here are given the confidence and the opportunities to take these skills out of the school and into the real world, using them to engage and communicate with society at large. As such, you’ll find the classes here offer balance between reading/writing and speaking. 

The curriculum at Kyoto Chuo School enhances this balance by alternating between semesters more focused on test preparation, followed up with those focused on applying acquired language skills in real and practical situations.

The school’s international vibe and desire to give students the chance the communicate while they learn continues with the events that they put on for the students, whether it be BBQs on the shores of Lake Biwa, the thrills of Universal Studios Japan, or tea ceremony after class. There are events throughout the year giving students chances to experience Japanese culture and engage with one another. 

We sat down to chat with some of the students at the school, and asked them what they enjoyed about life in Kyoto. Of course, they all remarked on how good it is to have access to such a historical city, but many also expressed how they like the pace of life here. We noticed information about part time jobs at the school reception, with students telling us that there’s so much choice due to Kyoto’s status as a popular tourist destination.

Kyoto Chuo School has its own dormitory accommodation nearby, and works with local agents to set up apartments for its students.  

Whilst classes here are basically ‘Japanese only’, the staff are more than happy to support in English, so don’t be afraid to get in touch and find out more.
