Overview

Improve your Japanese and achieve natural fluency in Japanese speaking ability — without compromising your commitments and schedule. Our lite intensive and part-time Japanese course allows students to learn Japanese once or twice a week at their convenient time slot. From beginner to upper-advanced, courses are strategically designed to help students communicate in Japanese effectively for work or everyday life. 

We limit our class to up to eight students. Putting a focus on a fun and casual atmosphere in our learning environment, the small-sized class makes students feel at least and encourages community learning. You will feel more at ease, gain confidence in speaking and even make new friends. 

All lessons can be taken remotely at home or office as a dispatch. 

Lite Intensive and Part-time Class Details

Class Size: Max 8 students (average students per class: 3-6 students)

We view ourselves as your study partner, rather than a Japanese instructor. To this, we want to enrich our students’ lives by teaching practical and applicable language skills. We also believe in the importance of community learning. You will connect with like-minded international residents in Tokyo — and even discuss similar passions and topics of interest. 

Depending on the level and focus, morning and evening classes are available.

• Professional workers and individuals who cannot commit to the full-time intensive courses every day due to work or other commitments.
• International residents living in Azabujuban (or surrounding Tokyo areas) who want to learn Japanese in a more casual and relaxed atmosphere
• Students who want to meet new people, form connections and make new friends.
