We've just signed our contract for 2024-2025 as the Vietnamese lessons provider for JICA Vietnam. This is our second year being selected by JICA Vietnam. Thank you for the honor!


Our classes for JICA Vietnam are always small, usually 1 - 3 students.


The course is quite intensive, usually 100 hours over four weeks.


90 of those hours are in class, and 10 hours are spent on excursions - to museums, markets, walking streets, water bus trips, etc. – in order to learn more about Vietnamese culture, society and economy.


The students have usually had some training in Vietnamese in Japan, and when they arrive in HCMC, they receive further instruction with us before beginning their work. We have worked with volunteers in various fields, including medicine, tourism, Japanese language, and urban development.
