Personal Ability Development (PAD) Foundation, Inc. is a non-stock and non-profit organization under the N.T. Group of Companies. Established in 2007, it is accredited by TESDA for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to provide Japanese language training. PAD Foundation conducts classroom-based lessons to develop speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills. Review classes for Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) are also offered. Aside from textbooks, audio-visual and other reading materials are also available for the trainees’ use.
Just in time for the recent JLPT, two 6-month-long classes ended last November 30, Friday. Though considered a National Holiday, the trainees and their respective instructors spent Bonifacio Day together by having one more day of Nihongo lessons. The class officially ended with a small gathering at the NT Center cafeteria. The party was enjoyed with some food, some laughs, and some stories to tell, making it a special ending for everyone.
To our trainees, we hope you keep in mind not only the Japanese grammar and vocabulary you have learned, but most importantly, the sense of responsibility and discipline instilled into you.
We wish nothing but the best for our trainees!
