Japanese Language For Adults Program

Coming To Zoom This Winter!

Our popular cultural program, the Japanese Language For Adults, will be moving online this winter. Over the last few months, our instructors have been working vigorously to cater the content of this popular program to an online format.

We welcome all existing students to continue the program with us. New registrants for all levels are also welcome. We will be working with smaller class sizes, and provide plenty of opportunity for discussion, conversation practice, and learning of fundamental grammar.

Make the most of your winter at home, and engage in this fast-paced Japanese Language course that perfectly balances grammar with real life usability.
