What others say.

  • This tutor was great as always. The program speed was also just right.

  • The standard of the teaching and the format in which we were taught was exceptional.

  • I tell people all the time that this is the best Japanese course in Sydney. I have been to a few different institutions to learn Japanese, and found the approach used by the teachers from CCE to be the most effective. Such wonderful teachers. Who ever thought spending Saturday mornings in class could be so much fun!

What others say.

  • The tutor was enthusiastic and passionate in introducing the Japanese language and culture. There where lots of activities that encouraged interaction, and by doing so, it gave us lots of opportunity to practice spoken Japanese in a natural way. I would strongly recommend this course.
  • This course has significantly advanced my knowledge of the Japanese language, while being taught in an encouraging and positive manner by a thoroughly able teacher.
