About Us

Knowing more than one language opens up your vacation destination possibilities. Traveling through a foreign country becomes much easier if you can speak the language of that country. Fluency is not required. Locals anywhere appreciate that you’ve taken the time to at least attempt to learn and communicate in their tongue. It shows a greater level of respect and is an easy way to meet new people.


IWA Language Learning Center was envisioned by the owner Mr. Hisayoshi Kadowaki to become one of the first learning academy for nurses and caregivers who want to work in Japan. Because of Japan's aging population, Mr. Kadowaki predicted that there will be enormous demand for health workers in Japan which is good news for the Philippines' surplus in nursing graduates. The problem is the language barrier. Only a small percentage of the Japanese population fluently speaks English.

This vision later evolved in building a school whose main objective is to teach Japanese to Filipinos. Soon after, Japan opened its door to construction workers and house keepers that bouyed the number of Japanese language enrollees up. Later, the manager decided to offer more foreign languages as country like Korea also opened its door to foreign workers.

Now IWA caters to almost all kinds of foreign languages. Nihongo is still one of the most popular but there are also students who want to learn Spanish, Mandarin, German and even Norwegian.

There is also a continuing demand for English speakers because of the country's booming BPO industry. Today, IWA is partnering with local and international agencies to provide job opportunities to graduates. Most recently, it has signed a MOA with Lexie Staffing & Business Consulting to supply them with manpower for different BPO companies.
