Following the success of our Japanese classes in 2016, we're delighted to offer both beginners and intermediate classes in 2017, with the best teachers in Edinburgh. Classes are offered in blocks of ten weeks for flexibility and affordability and are offered on a rolling basis for new and continuing students. Classes are designed to be small for the greatest interaction between the student and the instructor.
Our Beginners 1.1 course is for anyone who wishes to start Japanese without previous knowledge. In the weekly hour session, our teacher will guide you through your first steps in speaking, listening, reading and writing Japanese. With communication practice and an introduction to Japanese culture, learners will receive a holistic understanding of the Japanese language. By the end of the beginners 1.1 course learners will be able to construct basic statements and questions, offering simple greetings, introduce themselves and share their interests. Learners will be able to recognise Hiragana and Katakana with basic grammatical structures.
