Group Lessons

Learn in small, interactive & engaging classes

みんなで学ぶ

Learn together

Our group lessons provide a small, friendly and engaging atmosphere to facilitate your learning. You will get to know your teacher and classmates well through activities and group practice. After a term ends, most groups will continue onto the next level at the same day and time, with similar group members. You’ll be able to learn not only from your teacher, but also from your classmates. The General course will suit most students needs, and we also offer JLPT and Conversation courses for those who wish to focus on those specific areas.
