Teaching methodology

We are a Japanese language school specialized in communicative Japanese with a strong emphasis on real-life skills, as we think that learning Japanese just by reading textbooks and listening to tapes doesn't make you a real Japanese language speaker. With us you will learn common sentence patterns and vocabulary then use them in practical situations both inside and outside the classroom. We also offer a full range of cultural activities for you to also be able to experience the culture of Japan while learning the language.
