Japanese. Learn Japanese with us.

Japanese as spoken by over 130 million people. It is an intriguing language with a complex system of honorifics that reflects the hierarchical nature of the culture. With Japan being one of the largest economies in the world, this program is suitable for either business or leisure travel, or simply to enhance your cultural understanding through learning both written and spoken elements of Japanese.

Our beginners Japanese classes are suitable for people who have no prior knowledge of the Japanese language, while subsequent courses progressively increase the complexity of language concepts. If you want to learn to speak Japanese, our Japanese courses are ideal for adult learners to enjoy a practical and social experience while you learn Japanese language and culture.
