Hi guys, I’m Yuya. I hope this article encourages you, and especially those of you who study in Elementary or Pre-Intermediate Class. When I meet new Japanese students, they often ask me which class I am in. Then I answer ‘I’m in Advanced Class’ to which they probably say ‘You are so smart.’
However, they don’t know that I started in Elementary Class. I joined CCEB in October 2016 and graduated from Upper-Intermediate in February 2017. It took me approximately 5 months. After graduating from my University and quitting my job, I came back to CCEB like a boomerang. I started from Upper-Intermediate again, moved to High Upper-Intermediate in 2 weeks and I levelled up to Advanced Class last month. I spent about 6 months to level up from Elementary to Advanced class. I just want to say if you are in Elementary, don’t lose your confidence as you can still go to an Advanced class. If your starting class is Pre-Intermediate, you already have better English than I did when I started my studies at CCEB. It is not impossible to graduate from an Advanced Class even if you are in Elementary. I proved it to be possible. Actually I have 8 more months in CCEB, so I’ll keep studying harder. Please consult me when you feel uncomfortable or unhappy. I might be able to help you.
