China Ms.Hao
A trial lesson was the deciding factor in entering Shin Tokyo!
After coming to Japan I looked at many different universities and technical schools without knowing what type of occupation I wanted to enter. I took a trial lesson at Shin Tokyo and realized how fascinating it was to build teeth. The atmosphere of the school was very positive and active, so I decided to enter Shin Tokyo. We have many practical classes and make lots of teeth. There is full support for Japanese language, and my skills in Japanese have much improved.
