ETHOS receives good reviews!

WOW!!! In the last quarter of 2015, representatives of the prestigious Japanese blog site Phil-Portal paid a visit to ETHOS. They wanted to see if what they had heard about the quality and friendliness of the school was really true. They wrote a series of articles about what they found and it became one of their most popular articles.
They returned earlier this month and told us about the response. They asked if they could come again and get some additional information so they could write another article. We what to thank Kouta and his crew for taking time to see our program and to experience what ETHOS has to offer. If you want more details about us, and you can read Nihongo, go check out the articles!

NEW Intern from Korea!

In the last quarter of 2015, ETHOS started accepting people for internships with the company. Our first intern was Junki Ozeki, from Japan. He was with us for six months studying English and helping us with our Japanese language program.

As Junki was preparing to leave, we were preparing to welcome Jo Munheyong, from South Korea. Mun will be staying with us for three months, during which time he will be studying English and helping to set up a Korean language department here at ETHOS.

We are excited to have Mun with us. He is an energetic young man who wants very much to help others and he has a great desire both to teach and to learn!
