Japanese studies are available to students of all levels – from the basic beginner, to those who would like to reinforce their studies in school, as well as for Japanese students desiring to continue educational studies in their native language. Focus will be placed upon the reading and writing of Japanese, beginning with basic hiragana (Japanese alphabet) to advanced kanji (Japanese characters), as well as conversational skills. Emphasis will not only be on learning vocabulary but also on reading comprehension as well as the development of grammatical and sentence structure involved in writing. We utilize textbooks published by the well-known Mitsumura Company in Japan, a publishing company responsible for 60% of the textbooks used in Japanese schools.
