Studying in Japan
Everything about learning Japanese or studying at a Japanese college/university in Japan (MEXT).
I am a 14 year old girl from the Netherlands & I'm going to move to Japan in a few months (because of my dad's job).
We're still unsure if I should go to a local Japanese school or to an International school.
The main advantage of an international school is that I wouldn't really have any language-related problems.
On the other hand, entering a local public school will allow me to learn Japanese & have a more 'Japanese' experience. It's also cheaper.
I'm already taking Japanese classes though I am still at a beginner level.
I'd like to go to a local junior high school but I don't know if I'll be able to pick up the language quickly enough.
What do you guys think?
& what are local schools like compared to International schools?
