Our courses

In Sakura, all the teachers are native speakers and classes are conducted mainly using the direct method, which means you learn Japanese in Japanese. Our teaching materials are also based on listening to dialogues pronounced by native Japanese speakers.

Groups have a different teacher for each subsequent lesson. A total of up to 3 Japanese teachers are assigned to each group. Japanese language courses are intended for all those interested in learning the language, regardless of age.

Trimesters

A trimester of a basic Japanese course consists of 12 meetings (e.g. 12 Mondays, 12 Tuesdays etc.). One meeting is 2 lessons of 45 minutes duration. A trimester of an intensive Japanese course for beginners consists of 24 meetings per trimester (e.g. 12 Mondays and 12 Wednesdays or 12 Tuesdays and 12 Thursdays etc.).

The school year is divided into 3 terms: autumn term (October/November/December), winter term (January/February/March and spring term (April/May/June). After completing the 3 trimesters, the student can, on request, receive a certificate of completion at A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 or C2 level, according to the Japan Foundation syllabus.

Group size
Classes have an average size of 6 to 8 students. A group may be dissolved when the number of students in the group is less than 3. In case of dissolution of a group, the Foundation is obliged to provide the Student with classes in another group on a similar level of advancement or, if it is not possible, to provide the Student with compensatory classes enabling him/her to join a higher group. The Student has the right to change the group without giving any reason. Every change should be agreed with the Foundation.

Japanese courses in Japan

JAPANESE LANGUAGE COURSES IN JAPAN

at the KAI Japanese Language School

The Foundation’s partner in Japan is the KAI school in Tokyo. In cooperation with KAI, we organise summer Japanese language courses in Japan. During their stay in Tokyo, students live with Japanese families, learn the Japanese language every day and visit Japan at the weekends.

If you plan to go to Japan for a longer period of time, to study or to work, you should enrol on a long-term course at the KAI school. This course will enable you to learn the Japanese language quickly and at the same time, thanks to your student visa, you will be able to work in Japan.

Unfortunately due to the prolonged closure of borders by Japan to foreigners, courses in Japan are currently suspended. We will provide more information soon.
