Tokyo never sleeps! ^_^

Tokyo actually NEVER sleeps on any day of the week so I didn’t catch a lot of during my time over there. Too much things I was doing all the time including Karaoke nights and too much shopping…;) May it be at work or when hanging out with the other Meiji interns. Henri made great effort introducing us to a lot of nice bars in Roppongi and also went with us on a cultural walk trip around Asakusa in the old town of Edo.

The Business Development internship was sometimes a bit intense, but I have learnt so much about how it is to work in an exotic country like Japan. My tasks were ranging from market research to international customer acquisitions. Tapping into new unknown markets for selling Japanese manga and anime goods abroad and also learning to present my results to my Japanese colleagues was quite challenging. My supervisor was really helpful all the time and tried to assist me with my problems (especially translating things from Japanese into English).

P.S.: Make sure to get some Japanese language preparation before starting your internship. I wish I had studied a bit longer before starting my job.

Journalism internship in Fukuoka City

My internship experience last year winter with Meiji Academy exceeded my expectations!

During my initial interview with the internship consultants at Meiji Academy, they listened very carefully to all my needs and also tried to find something suitable for my requests. The service was very efficient and professional, not to mention of the great support they offered on site. They placed me in a journalism company that was also very active in promoting local businesses and cultural events in the larger Fukuoka Area. Overall my experience was great, but I really felt that I should have done a few weeks more Japanese studies before starting my work.

I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone seeking a unique work experience in an exotic country like Japan!

Fresh autumn days with a hot internship!

I did my internship in a hot spring/hotel resort on the outside of Fukuoka City. I was so lucky enjoying the best of both worlds, relaxing countryside with unlimited hot spring baths (almost daily!!) and weekend parties in downtown Fukuoka. Too bad my three months internship was so quick over.
One thing I wanna stress out is, make sure to see Kyushu's countryside. It's beautiful and the locals are so friendly and eager making friends with you. If there wouldn't be the language barrier.

Anyway my Japanese got better after three months... Meiji bring me back to Kyushu!!!

Marketing intern in Fukuoka

Working as a marketing intern for a large advertisement agency in Fukuoka was just simply mind-blowing! As this was my first time in Asia and my first internship abroad, I quickly began to see my personal strengths and weaknesses. The most struggling thing was the language barrier in Japan. But I was really happy that Meiji Academy put a lot of effort in communicating and structuring my internship before. They spoke with my company and even organized one to one sessions where I had the chance to discuss and talk about my personal development while I was still an intern there.

Japanese people are really lovely and I have to say that I regret that I only did a short crash course of two weeks Japanese business at Meiji. I highly recommend everybody to either study some basic Japanese phrases or include at least four weeks Japanese language studies in Japan before starting an internship :)

Meiji Academy for everything ありがとうございました!<3

The best language school ever!!!

I was doing the Standard Course with additional private classes for six weeks this Spring. I have to say I learnt in this short period more than I have done in my half year Japanese studies before. The teachers are really capable and insist to talk Japanese during the classes all time. The other really good points about their teaching method are their small classes sizes (2-5 people), strong focus on conversational Japanese and role-plays outside of the classroom. Yes! You heard right!! We went outside of the classroom once or twice a week to practice real life situations:

- Interviewing locals in the park or pubic places about their recommendations of local foods, rstaurants and hobbies
- Buying things at convenient and drug stores
- Asking for directions at subway and train stations
- Ordering Sushi and other yummy food at restaurants
and more!

I have to admit, I was quite shy at the beginning, but I really learned so much from this new learning approach.

P.S.: Make sure to join their free language exchange events with local high school and university students! Helped my Japanese speaking a lot!!!^_^
