Message from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees

Educational Corporation Chuo College of Technology Chairman of the Board of Trustees Kazuhide Horiguchi

The Educational Corporation Chuo College of Technology has been contributing to society through aiding in the development of Japanese industry since being founded in 1909 (Meiji 42).

Having now entered the 21st century our country, which was most successful as a leading industrial nation, is now in a period of transition in its sense of values with the drastic change in the global situation. From here on in we will need to seek even further coexistence as part of the international society.

Both Japanese and foreigners will need to understand and respect different cultures and mutually cooperate in together creating a new Japanese society in the future. We intend to utilize the historical educational results of the Chuo College of Technology to train students in becoming cosmopolitans that are comfortable with globalization which is taking place so rapidly.

As the first step in this we have opened Chou College of Technology affiliated Japanese Language School where foreign students can participate in high-quality practical Japanese lessons using our excellent training facilities and thus become internationally minded individuals that respect Japanese culture and morality.

We aim to contribute to the promotion of international friendship through the creation of highly qualified human resources.

Message from the Principal

Japanese Language School Principal Kenichi Maruyama

Japanese Language School affiliated with Chuo College of Technology will open in April, 2010.

Founded in 1909 the Chuo College of Technology opened a Japanese language school as a sister school in 2009, which is our 100th anniversary. We intend to offer you students an educational environment that will enable you to actively participate in society, and not only as a place to learn the Japanese language but also to learn to respect Japanese culture and morality, through use of our one hundred years of tradition and experience.

Every one of you who aims to study Japanese presumably has the ambition of acquiring the Japanese language as soon as possible in order to enter a Japanese university or vocational school.

Rest assured that a lot of effort will be needed to master accurate Japanese skills in such a short period of time. However, we are committed to supporting you as much as humanly possible so that you can study in peace. Let’s do our best together to make everyone’s dreams come true!
