Aretha Angcao

Master's Student/Soprano
Elisabeth University of Music

JLRC helped me to achieve my goal of taking my Masters degree in Vocal Music and Opera Studies in Japan. One of the conditions to get a full scholarship was to pass the N5, and JLRC helped me a lot in this area. I started with zero knowledge of Nihongo but JLRC helped me learn the language faster. As a result, I was able to qualify for a full scholarship and I am now on the second year of my studies here in Japan. I have also recently passed the N4 exam by reviewing the materials that I have received from JLRC. Thank you to all the wonderful professors of JLRC! You changed my life for the better!
