What is YWCA ?About YWCA

Nagoya YWCA started as a Japanese language class for foreign residents in 1978, and in March 1989,
the school was approved by the Aichi Prefectural government and opened as a vocational school.
Over the last 40 years, students from over 30 different countries and regions have enrolled in full-time and part-time courses
studying Japanese together at this historical Japanese language school, NAGOYA YWCA SCHOOL OF JAPANESE LANGUAGE.
Although students’ backgrounds and needs change with the times,
the attitude of facing each student to learn Japanese and approach their goals will not change.
YWCA will always be by the students side.
