Courses
We offer multiple study courses. Only one course can be taken each week, but students can take multiple courses over several weeks. For example, a student studying for 4 weeks could take two weeks of Japanese Plus Conversation, and two weeks of Japanese Plus Pop Culture. Almost all courses are available at all ability levels (except for Japanese Plus Conversation).

Course setup: All courses have the same core 4 hours of classes per weekday, in two 2-hour blocks
(two hours of Japanese grammar, and two hours of “application” 4-skills class). All Plus courses then have one or two hours of the specific course study (for example, pop culture or traditional culture).
Typical schedule:
9:30 am – 11:30 am: 4-skills class
11:30 pm – 1:30 pm: grammar class
2:30 pm ~: Specific subject classes
Note that the specific schedule will change depending on season and other factors.

Courses available:
1. Standard Japanese For people who need to be able to communicate in Japanese, this course offers a heavy emphasis on real-life skills. 
Learning Japanese just by reading textbooks and listening to tapes doesn't make you
a Japanese language speaker. Students will learn common sentence patterns and vocabulary with the teacher, then use them in practical situations both inside and outside of the classroom. This course offers a full range of activities that students will find both useful and exciting.
Maximum length: no limit
Schedule: 10 hours grammar class + 10 hours 4-skills class per week

2. Japanese Plus Conversation
This course builds on the Standard Japanese course by adding an extra 5 hours per week of classes focusing just on conversational topics such as dialects, slang, and modern Japanese.
Maximum length: no limit
Schedule: 10 hours grammar class + 10 hours 4-skills class + 5 hours conversation class per week
Students must have studied at least 100 hours of Japanese to take this course.

3. Japanese Plus Traditional Culture
This course offers students the opportunity to learn about traditional culture while learning the language, and the chance to participate in it with practical activities. Students will study topics such as ceramics, tea ceremony, calligraphy, and flower arrangement at school, and then join lessons with a specialist teacher, as well as learning about Japanese customs, history, and art. We guarantee that you will have a great experience!
