Fundamental Course

Our Fundamental Course is taught in English for children who do not speak Japanese at home but are interested in learning the language.  We provide basic knowledge of reading, writing and speaking through our unique teaching method.  Our experienced teachers have created their very own textbooks and curriculum.  This unique system provides opportunities for students to go beyond basic reading and writing, and to immerse themselves with essay-writing, in-class conversation, and verbal presentations.  Our tailor-made program allows students and their parents to recognize the progress the student has made throughout the year.

Fundamental Course classes run from 6:15pm to 7:45pm on Wednesdays from September through June.

・Elementary School Classes  (Kindergarten to Grade 7) - Beginner to Intermediate   Wednesday from 6:15 ~ 7:45pm

We classify students based on age and Japanese knowledge level.  Our Elementary School classes are structured around "Japanese for Young People" and our original textbooks, "TSUBOMI" and "SAKURA".  This curriculum was designed specifically for young children to learn conversational phrases and vocabulary as well as Hiragana and Katakana.

Our Secondary School class is structured around the textbooks, "Japanese for Young People", "Adventure", and "Marugoto" as well as a wide array of teaching materials for older students.  Lessons for beginners focus on conversation, phrases and vocabulary as well as reading and writing Hiragana and Katakana.  It is in this age group that the major improvements are commonly noticed.
