Course Options

We offer 7 language levels from beginner to expert and classes usually have 4 students but can have up to 8. Our small classes allow students to maximize their learning potential! The curriculum is based on increasing your ability to use the language in a practical way, and reinforced with "real world" activities outside of class. The school hosts between 7 and 10 activities every week. All teachers are licensed  to teach Japanese as a foreign language by the Japanese Ministry of Education and are constantly creating new teaching materials.
