Japanese Language Courses are offered from 2 to 12 weeks.  There are a great range of short term Japanese courses, with a variety of additional classes which ensures the Japanese School appeals to language studenss with a wide range of interests. We have gone into language course methodology in more detail here.  

 Standard Japanese Course

The Japanese Language course is purely communication orientated, ideal for those who wish to study key grammar and conversation skills of the language, but don't require in-depth study.   Classes are made up of 2 lessons of grammar and 2 lessons of conversation per day, with the main focus on real-life skills.  Learn common sentence patterns and vocabulary with your teacher and use them in practical situations both in and out of the classroom. 
In reality we anticipate 2 to 3 students per class and rising 5 to 6 students per class in July/August.  If a student is the only person at his/her Japanese ability level, the Japanese school will provide reduced private classes for them.
