Kadokawa Contents Academy - an academy established by KADOKAWA (Haruhi, Lucky Star, Sword Art Online, Kancolle etc) with a mission to teach various skills to folks who are interested in working in the creative content field such as anime, manga and games.
I recently attended their Taipei school to give a lecture for 2 days - it was my first time giving a talk in Mandarin ><
KCA is attended by folks of many backgrounds - students, salarymen/women - classes can be attended after school or work.
While graduates won't receive a certificate recognized by the country, something even better is acquired upon completion of the course - not only a certificate to show that one has graduated but also KADOKAWA's contacts.
Superstars are almost guaranteed a job in the creative field given their ninja skills - as long as they have the personality to match though ^^
I was brought up in the UK speaking English and Cantonese - I only started to learn Chinese after I met my wife who is from Shanghai. My listening is way better than my speaking so I had the help of Aoi-chan who is one of the staff members at the school - a Taiwanese local with incredible translation skills.
