Working for a Japanese social media company
I came to Japan in January 2021, and after one year and three months at ARC I left the school to start working for a Japanese social media company.
I had already studied the language before, but when I came to Japan, I wasn’t that confident in my language skills, and ARC helped me a lot to progress.
I passed the N2 the past December, and I would have not been able to do that without the school.
Q 1. What was your experience at ARC like?
I’ve studied for two terms in the Standard Course, and that’s where I really studied the Language, the grammar and sentence structure, and once I got pretty familiar with Japanese, I moved to the Business Class, the Business Japanese is a little bit more difficult, but it was a great experience. You learn the language but also the mindset, and for me, that I want to stay in Japan forever, it was really an important part of my life.
Q 2. What did you like most about the school?
What makes ARC so special, is that the teachers are so much invested in the students. Teachers and students become almost as friends.
You really learn together, grow together, it was an incredible experience, from start to finish.
Q 3. What is your current job like?
I’ve just started working so it’s early to say. I’m doing marketing for a Japanese social media firm, I was able to find that job thanks to my Japanese skills that I’ve learned in the Business Class. The process was grueling at times, but studying at ARC really helped me develop the knowledge that I needed to communicate in Business Japanese.
Q 4. How do you like Tokyo?
The city is the center of everything. All of the big events, businesses, places and people, they are all in Tokyo. It’s the best place to be from a networking and job perspective.
