January 2022 Part-time Japanese Course for Beginners in Yokohama

Ready to start 2022 by taking the first step on your Japanese learning journey? Now’s your chance to study Japanese from ground zero by joining our part-time Japanese course in our Yokohama Japanese language school.

Our part-time Japanese lessons are designed for busy students who want to create a short-term or long-term customized study schedule. Students are able to sign up for a combination of classes that match their level and interest. This month, we’re opening our Practical Japanese for Beginners course.

Who is this part-time Japanese course perfect for?

Our Practical Japanese for Beginner course is aimed at learners who are around N5 level. It is perfect for beginners who have never learned Japanese before, including katakana and hiragana. Our class uses a textbook with romaji, so you don’t have to worry about feeling left behind.

Our school is located in Yokohama, too. International residents who live in the area might think commuting to Tokyo — where most Japanese language schools are located — is too time-consuming. Our close proximity to your residence makes it convenient for you to join our practical beginner class.

What will we learn in the part-time Japanese course?

You will learn how to read and write two Japanese alphabets: hiragana and katakana.

As the name suggests, you will also tackle useful, necessary phrases and key vocabularies in Japanese. At the end of the course, you will gain a lot of basic vocabulary and be able to apply everyday expressions: ordering at restaurants, asking for directions with confidence and making questions.

What’s the goal of this course?

Our focus is on practical. The goal of this course is to prepare you to create sentences by yourself and communicate in simple Japanese.
