Hear from Past Interns
University of Central Oklahoma
"My time at Chiba has assuredly been the most memorable and eye opening part of my college career! The food, the environment, and the culture were so exciting and different. My host family was so kind and couldn't have taken better care of me. As far as teaching, I was able to learn about different methods from Great Britain, Japan, and Taiwan while working with the local and foreign teachers. The kids were so smart and well behaved, I would recommend student teaching at Chiba to anyone who is looking to get a different perspective and a lot of experience."

“During my internship at Chiba Language School, I was really shocked about the children’s language ability. When the children face Japanese teachers, they naturally speak in Japanese. When the children face English teachers, they naturally speak in English. They speak the three languages (English, Japanese, and Mandarin) as their mother languages. Children’s ability to problem solve and absorb language also surprised me. I am grateful of this internship opportunity and the valuable experience that I have gained.”
Mei University (Japan)
"First of all, I would like to thank Chiba Language School for allowing me to have this opportunity to do an internship here. Before I came to the school, I was surprised to hear that the kindergarten children learn two foreign languages. After I came and saw how children learn in English & Japanese environment, I was even more surprised to see children can express themselves in English and Japanese. I believe children learning foreign languages at a young age will give them unlimited possibilities to thrive in our global world. Lastly, this internship is a good experience to understand how children learn language. "
National Pingtung University
"Chiba Language School is one of the few kindergartens that teach English and Japanese. I saw how children improved very quickly when they are immersed in the environment, especially the youngest children. I learned that taking care of the children is not something easy to do, but I will temporarily forget the hardship when seeing their growth. We learn together with the children everyday!"
