|Sophisticated Teaching Method|
We teach using the “communicative approach” by teaching Japanese in Japanese. The focus lies on developing your ability to speak and understand Japanese. You learn languages most efficiently by communicating in an enjoyable and engaging way. We believe students should talk at least 70% during lessons. Continuous practice is the best way to improve your language skills.
Lessons are from Monday to Friday and we use the weekend for day trips around Fukuoka. You will receive your schedule for the next week every Friday. Lessons can either be in the morning from 9:00 to 12:15 or in the afternoon from 13:00 to 16:15. Every Wednesday and Friday, we organize a Free Japanese Study Group from 18:00 and a Kanji Class from 17:00. New students have an Orientation and City Tour on their first Monday at the school.
We are very proud to have one of the most experienced teachers who has been teaching Japanese for over 30 years at our school. Our teachers do regular simulated lessons to keep their teaching method up-to-date and to ensure that every teacher offers the same lesson quality. Meet our teachers and staff members.
