Our aim is for students to master the four skills of "speaking", "listening", "reading", and "writing", which are necessary in real situations of life and work in Japan. Students study in class and through off-campus activities. We will also provide various chances to help you speak Japanese more smoothly and know more about Japanese society and culture.
From Monday to Friday, short-term intensive lessons
