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 course and Focus on Communication course for those who wish to focus on those specific areas.

ジャパニージーならではのレッスン

What makes our group lessons different?

Most effective mothod

We take a flipped teaching style – You watch the lecture videos before your class, then in the classroom you can focus on more practice and activities, which is easy to follow and speeds up your learning

A clear goal for each lesson

Why set a clear goal for each lesson? By defining the goal, you have a much clearer idea of what you can achieve by the end of the lesson. That means, you can practise with a clear mind, which leads to more effective learning, and encourages your learning

Enjoy learning and boost conversational skill

Learning should never be boring! Our teachers ensure that every lesson is filled with interesting takeaways and good laughs! Our small, interactive lessons ensure each student gets plenty of speaking practice.
