Conversational Japanese Class
An Easy Start for Beginners!
Who take this class?
Do you wanna learn Japanese but you don't need to read or write Japanese?
Join our Conversational Japanese Class!
This class is designed to meet the needs of students hoping to learn practical Japanese for immediate use in the real world as opposed to grammar.
Our textbook is characterized by the following points:
*Instead of grammar, phrases and their function within a conversation are written out to help students learn natural sounding Japanese.
*Units are composed of several different elements in accordance with their interests.
*Conversation drills are presented separately from grammatical explanations to help students easily understand both practical exercises and the workings of the Japanese language.
*Each unit contains a variety of practice exercises to help students naturally acquire target phrases and expressions.
the Real Okinawa experience
We also offer the opportunity for our students taking both English and Japanese courses to interact, in our “Exchange Classes”.
Our language exchange takes students who speak different languages and engages them in practicing each other's language.
In a language exchange you practice more than you would in a class, talking with native speakers of the language you're learning, in a relaxed and supportive environment where there is patience and time to understand.
A language exchange is also a wonderful way to learn the real spoken language of the culture, with all its "modern" grammar, informal expressions and slang.
Our language exchange is a fantastic way to bridge the gap between classroom learning and communicating in the real world!
When learning to speak another language you need the right kind of practice - and lots of it!

Our Unique Curriculum
Many students want to join a particular class that may be part-way through a semester -- that is fine! Time is precious, and there is no need to wait until the class restarts.
Join when you can, study for that week’s lesson, and review past lessons on your own.
Our curriculum is set-up so you can learn all of the material on your own and use the school for practice, clarification, and reinforcement.
