You can consult and exchange information in foreign languages.

Why don’t you talk about school, career, study and life in a foreign language with the staff of Shimane International Centre and parents with foreign roots? You are welcome to ask anything you want to know or have trouble with, or just have a fun talk!

  • I don’t understand what is written in the school printouts, can someone please help me.
  • I want to send my child to high school, but I don’t really understand the Japanese school system…
  • I’d like to casually talk about school-related topics in a foreign language.

The Shimane International Center staff will be available to listen to your concerns.
