Study Abroad for one year

Today, one of our students is leaving for Canada to begin one year of studying abroad.

She will be staying in Kelowna, British Columbia - which is a beautiful area. I am sure she will have a wonderful time there and learn many things.


We all wish her the best of luck. And we look forward to getting her monthly reports some of which we will try to share here on this blog as well.


Seiritsu is trying had to increase the number of students who go abroad to study. Young students can learn and grow so much from these opportunities.

If your son or daughter is a regular Japanese student and would like the chance to go abroad, it might be possible. There are many programs and some of them include grants or scholarships or loans to make this process more feasible. We will gladly help any of our students with this process.

Say hello to Scarlett!

Hey everybody,
I am Scarlett Halford. I am the new Assistant Language Teacher at Seiritsu Gakuen.

I come from England. Yorkshire, the county that I live in is famous for its beautiful countryside and also the tea brand 'Yorkshire Tea'. My love of hiking comes from exploring the Yorkshire Dales, the hilly region I come from. At The University of Leeds I studied Sociology and Social Policy. I chose this subject as I enjoy learning about other cultures and thinking critically about aspects of our society.

This is my first time in Japan, however I have lived overseas before. In 2016 I lived with a family in India for three months, during this time I volunteered in the village by assisting in teaching English, holding regular women/youth groups and also by organizing fun community events.

I am really excited to start a new life in Japan, learn the language and participate in traditional and cultural events across the country. In the past three weeks I have already explored many exciting areas of Tokyo. I went to TeamLAB digital art museum, I attended the Pikachu Parade in Yokohama and also visited the beach and the Great Buddha in Kamakura.

I look forward to speaking English with you. If you have any suggestions on places I should visit or food that I should try please let me know!
