Effective Drill Training and Conversation Level-up Course

Students often struggle applying memorized vocabulary and sentence patterns. In other words, they have hard time building sentences and improving their quick-response ability in Japanese.

Confidence is key — something we emphasize in our Effective Drill Training and Conversation Level-up course.

Here, students use a series of specially designed drills and speaking training to improve their communication ability. This will also help them gain confidence and have an easier time expanding their vocabulary.

We have flexible schedule options (afternoon or evening), so you can easily pick a time that fits your busy life.

Target Level: Upper Beginner
Schedule: Monday at 19:10-21:00 or Thursday at 13:10-15:00
Materials: Coto’s original handouts

Location: Coto Academy, 3F Iidabashi Building 4-9-4, Iidabashi, Chiyoda-ku

For a more detailed course schedule, kindly visit this Google Sheet.

What will we learn?

The goal of this course is to prepare students to speak Japanese naturally. By the end of the session, you will be able to convey your wishes, ask for permission, study assumptive expressions and communicate your feelings accurately.

You will learn new sentence patterns, such as volitional, conditional, potential and passive forms. Rather than stopping there, we will encourage you to practice them immediately. That way, you will get used to applying Japanese grammar and be comfortable when speaking.

As a reference, take a look at some of our lesson agendas below. One course will cover one sentence pattern, which will continue according to the date of the class.

When can I join?

We design our part-time courses specifically for students who can’t commit to full-time Japanese language classes, either because of work, university or other conflicting schedules.

Because of this, you can join our part-time courses anytime. Instead of following the school’s rigid schedule, it’s up to you to join the course of your choice — and when you want it.

If you’re interested in signing up (or just want to ask more questions), feel free to visit our contact page (the same form is also below) or get in touch with us at [email protected].
