Course Info


If you have never studied Japanese before (or have studied a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away), this is the course for you. We will teach you the initial gist to read, write, speak and listen to the Japanese language. New vocabulary and grammar will be constantly introduced and you will learn to communicate in a variety of situations, whether at work, school, college or in the Japanese community.

After you complete our beginner course, you will achieve the equivalent level of JLPT N5.

Intermediate & Advanced

After completing 8 terms of Beginner lessons, we will continue to build from the previous level and start guiding you into a more intermediate (JLPT N4 equivalent) and advance (JLPT N3 equivalent) level of the Japanese language. Eventually your Japanese will be so fluent, you will be dreaming in Japanese. You have been warned.

Study and work in Japan

What is better than studying Japanese? Studying Japanese while you’re in Japan, of course! By spending a week in Japan, you can experience the Japanese culture and customs first hand and also enjoy the opportunity to take part in local festivals. Get to know Japan intimately during the holiday season and witness the first sunrise in Nippon. How awesome is that? Click here for more information.
