Beginning Japanese for Youth

Designed for children 11-15*. Classes meet once a week for 9 weeks.

The general goals of this course will be to create a solid foundation in the Japanese language in the four language skills:

  • speaking,
  • listening,
  • reading, and
  • writing

Practice will focus on building conversational skills within the topics that are relevant to teenagers’ daily lives such as school, family, hobbies, and shopping. The instructor will also guide learners in cultural exploration with activities designed help deepen the understanding of Japanese culture and compare and contrast it to their own.

We offer both an online and an in-person class to meet the needs of all of our students.

* Ages 16 and older can take our regular classes. Find out more information on our group languages class page.
