Learn Japanese in Fukuoka
Learn Japanese in Japan, in a language school that focuses on the needs of foreign language students. The Fukuoka based school specializes in teaching Japanese for communication purposes. These programmes are ideal for adults and students looking to improve their Japanese in a small school with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
The Japanese courses are aimed to meet the needs of non-kanji speakers (and attract predominantly European nationals).
Fukuoka city centre is built on a human scale and is a comfortable living and study environment for Westerners looking to experience Japan, it’s culture and it’s language without becoming lost in the crowd.
Students can start on any Monday throughout the year, and study for as many weeks as required. The school aims to be the most flexible, fun and rewarding Japanese school in Japan!
I was expecting to find it difficult linguistically! CESA gave me lots of information about the school and the course so my expectations generally were based on that! Honestly – yes it was hard work – but the teachers were good so they encouraged me to work even harder.
