Japan College of Foreign Languages
Japan College of Foreign Languages was established in 1970, then called the Tokyo Institute of Intercultural Communication, as a pioneer in the field of interpreter and tourist guide training, and is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2020. It has now grown into a vocational college for higher education with 11 departments offering 32 courses. Over the past 50 years, as JCFL has grown, relations between Japan and the rest of the world have become more and more important. Such words as 'internationalisation' are becoming common currency. JCFL will continue to embrace and contribute to our globalising society by providing students with a wide perspective of the world, along with the ability to understand and appreciate diversity. Moving towards the future, JCFL will persist in improving its education in accordance with its core principles, the holistic development of our students, the cultivation of students' thinking skills and the promotion of independent minds.
