The Japanese language course is purely communication orientated, ideal for those who wish to study key grammar and conversation skills of the language.   Classes are made up of 2 lessons of grammar and 2 lessons of conversation per day, with the main focus on real-life skills, across all language levels.  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 4 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.

The Academic Year Course uses interesting and modern materials and activities to focus on improving your Japanese speaking ability in a way that gives you the flexibility to adapt to new situations, until one day you won’t even need a teacher any more!

Small-group classes are given both inside and outside of the classroom – you will learn essential communication techniques in structured lessons with the teacher.

Each term is made up of 10 weeks, followed by a 3 week break.  Full details, including exact term dates can be found in the attached PDF details.

JLPT Exams

Do you speak Japanese? Can you prove It!

Some people study Japanese for self-enrichment or want to know how to tell the time or talk on the phone in Japanese or to satisfy short term language requirements in high school, college, university or career goals. Others however, such as university or Gap students, Japanese University applicants, translators or others with long term career goals, study the language as part of a formal training programme. For this latter group of students, formally proving competency in the language is a requirement and this is where the JLPT Exams are of great value.
