How our beginner course is different from other courses

Real-world Missions
Through our unique “learning missions” – students use classroom time to practice Japanese in the real world.  These missions are designed to help you easily remember through real world practice.
Mission examples:

  • Ask a local for directions
  • Ask for advice at a pharmacy
  • Go shopping at a clothing store

Speaking Practice
Our crash course allows our students to practice speaking Japanese from day one.  Instead of focusing on learning writing systems – You will start immediately learning how to speak Japanese through easy to remember sentence patterns.

Practical knowledge
We focus on only things that are practical and useful for your every-day life in Japan.  We will not be having you learn things that cannot be used in real life.
You can see a few samples of course materials that we use below.
