    What is the meaning of COMMUNICA?

    -----The sprit on which this school was built

    The name of COMMUNICA INSTITUTE is the origin of communication and comes from

    communicatio in Latin. Communicatio does not imply that we share material things. It means to

    share ones sense of values, the way of thinking, and behavior patterns in common.

    What is our goal ?-----Educational Philosophy Our behavior and the way of thinking are greatly influenced by own culture. It is not bad, yet

    the international communication does not go well within the limited view. In our school, we are

    conscious of cultures, which we are not usually conscious of values and the way of thinking like air,

    and have it jointly. Our aim is to build a base so that you put your own culture valuable, transcend

    your culture, and create new values.

    How do we learn ?-----Educational / Learning Policy Our school has two policies; nanjijishin wo shire and nanji mizukara masani shiru beshi.

    nanji jishin wo shire : Know yourself This is carved in a shrine of Apollo. Know better yourself. People learn hard other

    languages or traditional cultures, yet we do not turn our attention to culture inside you. If you

    do not know better yourself, you could not understand/know things or people around you.

    Through different cultures, you may meet questionable things about behavior, customs, and

    so on. Lets explore ? which you have together with us.

    nanji mizukara masani shiru beshi : Just have a try This sentence is in Buddhist scriptures. The meaning is trying by yourself, first of all. Not

    only by reading and thinking, but also by doing something with your body and five senses.

    Taking action makes the next step.
