Are you new to Japan and want to start learning Japanese? Have you been living in Tokyo for some time yet never had the chance to formally study Japanese in a classroom setting? Do you want to improve your Japanese skills and find work in Japan? SNG created its Saturday courses, organized in three levels, to address those needs.

A class to start learning Japanese

The “Introduction to Japanese” class gives a solid foundation of the Japanese language. You will learn the hiragana and katakana alphabets, as well as expressions, manners, greetings, and the basics of grammar. This course aims to help you feel comfortable in everyday Japanese conversation, while emphasizing the uchi/yoso interactions (polite language) that also enable you to handle simple conversation appropriate for the workplace. This course is specifically adapted for complete beginners.

Learn everyday Japanese

Learn words and expressions encountered in everyday scenarios via conversation. Learn how to implement useful words and phrases through mock scenarios, using locations like a supermarket, konbini and train stations. Also learn about differentiating between more formal speaking at work versus casual talk with friends. There will also be opportunitites to practice Japanese by having real conversation with Japanese people. Learn about the origins of kanji, how to count strokes and stroke order, as well as *how* to study kanji (all while studying around 50 essential kanji found in daily life).

A Business class to work in Japan

The business Japanese class is dedicated to students who have passed JLPT N3 or above. In this class, you will learn useful expressions for business-related interactions. The class is composed of two sections: In the first, you will learn keigo (honorific language), business-related vocabulary and how to write business emails. The second half is all about work etiquette in Japan. It covers topics such as business card etiquette, customer reception, and learning appropriate behaviours/mannerisms to communicate respectfully with your co-workers. The class is designed to help you succeed and grow within the Japanese workplace.
