Japanese Intensive Course

This course is designed to help students acquire the four language skills of Japanese (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) in a well-balanced and comprehensive manner. For those who wish to enter a Japanese university, vocational school, or find a job, we recommend the Intensive Course, which allows students to study systematically from the basics.
In the beginner's level, students learn practical expressions used in daily life, and in the intermediate and advanced levels, students improve their ability not only to understand but also to express their own opinions on social issues and news topics.

Kanji lesson

The Kanji Class is included in the Intensive Course.
This means that it is not possible to take Kanji Class only.
The Kanji Class schedule is from 13:30 to 15:00 every Tuesday and Thursday and the class is divided into seven levels. You can take a test once a month. Whether your native language uses Kanji characters or not, you can move up to a higher level at your own pace. Learning Japanese might be hard because of the fact that you have to learn Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. However, learning Kanji will augment your vocabulary and will improve your inferring skill.
