Standard Japanese Course

You won't get far in Japan without being able to speak the language, but using the special techniques our teachers have developed, you'll be surprised how easy it is to learn to speak Japanese, and you'll be fluent before you know it! Our Standard Course uses interesting and modern materials and activities to focus on improving your Japanese speaking ability in a way that gives you the flexibility to adapt to new situations, until one day you won't even need a teacher anymore!

Small-group classes are given both inside and outside of the classroom - you will learn essential communication techniques in structured lessons with the teacher, then practice them in real-world situations, such as:

Asking at the train station
  • Calling a movie theater to ask for showtimes
  • Ordering delivery sushi
  • Calling a restaurant to make reservations
  • Giving a questionnaire to people in the park
  • Asking for directions at the train station
  • Buying electronics
