Three Months Intensive Course

Dynamics lessons customized for your life
We’s lessons are guided by three P’s.
1) “Presentation” to enable the students to understand clearly
2) “Practice” to acquire and retain knowledge
3) “Production” to make the language become second
nature.Therefore, we employ both a direct method that emphasizes using only the target language in class, but also a
bilingual method using English to help scaffold learning when needed . In particular, we make
the most out of the bilingual method in “Presentation” in order to maximize the students’ understanding in
the limited time period.

The lesson contents are practical. We start from everyday Japanese and focus on the vocabulary you use in real life rather than just explaining grammar. We support you to not only study Japanese, but also connect with people to have a meaningful life in Japan. Our teachers, who are well informed about Japanese culture, will deepen your understanding of a Japanese lifestyle.


Course Overview We set a cap of 8 students per course.
