2022 Japanese Intensive Crash Course for Beginners

What’s your New Year’s resolution for 2022? If you’re planning to start studying Japanese from ground zero, let us help you set the motion running. Next year, we’re opening our beginner intensive course that starts on January 2022.

What’s can I expect from beginner’s intensive course?

Our intensive course is designed to dramatically improve your Japanese language skill in a short period of time. In a small group of up to eight students, you will focus on more practical aspects of Japanese and have all the time — and attention — to practice speaking. We see ourselves as your study partner and not just your Japanese teacher.

By the end of the True Beginner’s Crash Course, you will master how to:

  • Read and write hiragana and katakana
  • Introduce yourself and greet others in Japanese
  • Make orders in a restaurant or shop-setting

The teaching method for this course focuses on learning key Japanese phrases and simple words with no explicit emphasis on grammar explanations.

You will learn two to three key phrases per chapter of our materials through immersive usage and also learn the basics of the Japanese phonetic alphabet.

Who is this course perfect for?

This will be a crash course for total beginners. Even if you have never learned Japanese, don’t worry. Our native professional instructors will guide you through completing your study on hiragana and katakana. No one is left behind, but everyone will reach their learning goal nevertheless.

When will this course be held?

For effective learning, our intensive courses are held five days a week for 4 weeks (including national holidays).

Date: January 10 – February 4

Time: Monday to Friday, 14:10-17:00
