Course summary

This is a course for students who already have a basic knowledge of Japanese (i.e. those who have completed ABC Awards Level 1) and would like to continue their studies. The course explores the language as well as the Japanese culture using authentic materials.

The one year syllabus offers a positive and appropriate approach for Japanese language learners through a variety of topics and also allows you to learn more Kanji (200 altogether) as well as more advanced grammar structures.

Studying Japanese will certainly make your application for higher education or employment stand out from the rest!
