Voices of Our Graduates

DBC Graduate Se Hi Kim

Tokyo Gakugei University, Art Department, Photography Program

When I started at DBC, I was worried. I did not have many friends and I was only able to write hiragana and katakana. However, I met kind teachers and made friends with fun students from places like China and Korea. As a result, I was able to have an enjoyable year at DBC.

  1. At DBC, we began our classes with kanji tests. I disliked kanji and was not so good with them. Still, I wrote the kanji over and over again, eventually without looking. I learned the kanji and I gladly still use them today.
  2. When the classes began to lull and students became tired, the teachers woke us up by sharing exciting things.
  3. Through phone calls, the teacher in charge of the class and the office staff showed kind concern for students who were consistently late or absent.
  4. There are many fun things to do outside of class. You can meet with Japanese living in Japan, visit a courthouse, and experience a number of new things! DBC is a fun school!

DBC Graduate Hannah Kang

I started at DBC in April 2008 and I finished in March 2010. During my two years, DBC looked after me very well. When I first came to Japan, I was largely unaware of how to become a Japanese university student. In fact, I was bewildered by all that I did not know about Japan in general. Of course, I did not immediately grow accustomed to my life in Japan. I worried about many aspects of my life in Japan. During these times, DBC teachers always helped me. As a result, I was able to move forward. I am very thankful for how DBC teachers guided me on how to proceed with my studies and life in Japan.

I tend to get wrapped up with small things. Still, the DBC teachers kindly listened to me. At times, what they said gave me confidence and peace. At other times, what they said warmed my heart. In one instance, I lost my way and I was in such a painful situation that I wanted to give up. During this situation, the DBC teachers empowered me and I was able to move ahead.

Furthermore, I gained confidence at DBC. Even amidst my worries, I learned to have confidence in myself, in others, and in the future. “Things will be okay. If I do my best, my future will turn out,” I began to think. Also, during my studies, DBC teachers trusted me and I trusted them. Through this bond, classes were enjoyable and comfortable.

Entering university in Japan is not my final goal. I now face a new beginning. The next two years may bring more good times or they may bring suffering. However, I have confidence in myself and those around me. I am able to say this because of my two years at DBC.

I graduated from DBC and I am now facing a new start in a new place. I am very glad that I was able to attend Dynamic Business College.

DBC Graduate Ki Paku Lee

Kwansei Gakuin University

DBC has been a big help to me. I studied for what I consider a long period - two years and three months. As I look back, studying was fun and my time at DBC was good.
As a Korean, this year I got into Kwansei Gakuin University. To say that this was because of DBC is not an exaggeration. The things I learned at the school really helped me. The teachers are highly-experienced and they were especially helpful. One time, a teacher was very strict with me, which really helped me learn. Another time, a teacher was like a mother to me and an issue I was anxious about was put in its proper perspective. The DBC teachers take responsibility for their students, making sure DBC students soon become accustomed to life in Japan and grow in their Japanese language ability. The DBC curriculum is tailored to each student’s purposes. For me, this helped me trust DBC and it also enables students to fulfill their goals for studying.
My younger brother in Korean said that he wanted to study Japanese in Japan. I recommended DBC to him. In Japan, there are many, many Japanese Language Schools.  Still, I think DBC is the best. Choosing DBC is half of your success. The other half is doing your best while attending the school.

DBC Graduate Yoon Sook Lee

Doshisha University Sociology Department

My name is Yoon Sook Lee. I graduated DBC in March 2010 and I am currently studying in Doshisha University’s Sociology Department. When I first came to Japan, I was not even able to remember how to write hiragana. For the first month, I was even afraid to go outside and I basically did not. Yet now I am able to read kanji in specialized subjects and I plan to graduate from a Japanese university. I was not able to do that on my own. Honestly, when I was at DBC, at times I thought, “Why are we studying this?” However, now I realize that those classes have become a big help to me. Going to school every day and even just speaking in Japanese and listening to Japanese certainly became helpful for my future. The teachers and the office staff were very cheerful, and we were able to have a number of interesting conversations. I am very glad that I graduated from DBC. I was able to meet great teachers and students and I will not forget the fond memories I have from DBC.

I will continue to do my best.

DBC Graduate Boram Jeong

What I most enjoyed about attending DBC was meeting various people. I met friends who helped me through hard times and teachers who were always kind. If it were not for them, I think I would have abandoned my dream of going on to university.

Also, my Japanese proficiency increased. When I first came to Japan, my kanji was really weak. However, I am at a point where I can easily read a book in Japanese. (Of course, I do not understand everything one hundred percent.) I am glad I came to DBC.

DBC Graduate Ju Ko

Continuing is powerful. Humans are driven by purpose and vision.

In October 2008, other students and I came to Japan with a vision. With thanks to DBC, I am living that vision and I am now a graduate student.

It has been about a year since I came to Japan. This last year has been the best. Before coming to Japan, what I knew about the country only came from books and the internet. Also, I was very concerned about living in a foreign country. Now I realize that choosing DBC was wise. Now what I know comes from my personal experience of studying in Japan.

DBC has teachers who are always willing to help, which enabled me to live my vision. Surely other schools exists. However, through various DBC events I was able to learn what books and the internet do not necessarily teach. I do not think I would have learned these things at another school. Through meeting Japanese students at the Culture Exchanges, I was able to learn more deeply about Japanese culture and the Japanese way of thinking. By visiting a courthouse and the police headquarters, I was able to understand what I should do in an emergency as a student studying abroad. This eased my nerves and helped me get over the “issue” of what would happen if there was a disaster.

Thanks to DBC, I was able to make great memories, succeed in graduate school, and enjoy my time in Japan. From the bottom of my heart, I am thankful.

I think DBC is the best school. If I had a chance to choose again, I would choose DBC.

DBC Graduate from March 2005

Japan College of Foreign Languages Korean-Japanese Interpretation Major
DBC Recipient of the MEXT Scholarship

I really enjoyed my two years at DBC. For someone like me who thought that studying was absolutely not enjoyable, DBC is a special place for me. This is because at DBC, the teachers not only teach you, but the teachers and students do things together. The teachers not only teach Japanese, they teach students about Japan and give students advice about getting accustomed to life in Japan.

Perhaps because of that, I enjoy my life in Japan. Also, DBC hosted a number of events. For example, our speech contests and trip to Disneyland are just a couple of unforgettable memories. Participating in the speech contests, seeing the Japanese teachers dance, and watching people from different cultures do their tradition dances were also great experiences.

I graduated from DBC and I am currently learning about what I want to study at a specialty school. I sometimes remember the fun times I had at DBC!

DBC Graduate from March 2005

Rikkyo University Economics Department Management Program
DBC Recipient of the MEXT Scholarship

I plan to manage a hotel. I came to embrace this dream during my two years at DBC. While at DBC, I started from the very basics of the Japanese writing system. At first, I was unable to pick up the language. However, the DBC teachers patiently led me. I felt like they drew out of me the ability to speak Japanese.

As a result, out of 400, I was able to score 379 on the EJU. I was able to score well for three reasons. First, I held the classes to be important. Second, I watched at least an hour of Japanese television every day. Third, I did not use an electronic dictionary at school. If I did not understand a word, I would ask the teacher directly.

The way that DBC teachers positively interacted with us students was great and became a great way to learn. I found the teachers to be very trustworthy.

Since I studied at DBC, I was able to begin actualizing my vision.

With my vision in mind, I will continue to do my best.
