We interviewed a JSAF staff member who is working hard day and night to help students take the IELTS exam. You can feel the passion from the front line.

  • How did you get started as an official IELTS test center?

Since its establishment in the year 2000, JSAF has been partnering with universities in Japan and abroad to provide support for university students and high school students to study abroad. In 2016, JSAF became the first IDP-accredited test center in Japan to operate an official IELTS test center. JSAF believes that with the addition of IELTS test management, a global standard English 4-skill test, our global network of overseas and domestic partner universities and the experience we have gained through our study abroad program will further contribute to global activities and the improvement of English language education in Japan. Like IDP, we hope to contribute to society as a comprehensive international educational institution that includes a wide variety of study abroad programs and its "gateway," the IELTS test.

  • What are the advantages of taking the IELTS test at JSAF?

JSAF is an internationally trusted IELTS test provider, so it is only natural that the test is administered in a strict and secure manner. In addition, JSAF strives to create a relaxed environment where candidates can take the test and demonstrate their abilities, just like the IELTS test in Australia. JSAF provides logoed pencils with interchangeable nibs and erasers, so you don't have to worry about forgetting your writing tools. We have shortened the application deadline to three days in advance so that you can take the test even at the last minute. JSAF trains the staff, so that you can feel the hospitality on the day of the test and after the test, sends your score via SMS. Thankfully, we have many repeat test takers. We are also proud of our convenient locations in Takadanobaba, Tokyo, and Nishi Umeda, Osaka, and the convenience of being able to choose between paper and computer-based examinations.

  • What do you usually keep in mind as a test center?

IELTS is not a pass/fail test, but an accurate and rigorous test of four skills. The IELTS test is not a pass/fail test, but an accurate and rigorous test of the four skills. Many people aim to get a score first, but beyond that, they have dreams and goals such as studying abroad. We believe that IELTS is a tool that can be used as a bridge to your dreams of connecting with the world. Please feel free to talk to our staff while you are waiting for your test to start. We would be very happy to have you share your goals with us. It is a great pleasure when people tell us that chatting with us in this way had eased their tension.
