Core Japanese language course with Genki Japanese and Culture School
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
This course will form the basis of any study plan you choose to follow at GenkiJACS. It consists of ten 50-minute grammar classes per week, and ten 4-skill “application” classes, where you practice what you learned in communicative situations.
You can add any of our exciting modules or addons on top of this course for an even more intensive Japanese learning experience!

Class systemOur Japanese language school works on a rolling start basis, meaning we have several ongoing classes studying different points in the curriculum at any time. When new students join on Monday, they fall into the class studying material that is closest to their level.
