Conversational Japanese Classes

Japanese Language Class

About our Conversational Japanese Language Classes

Stemming from classical Japanese literature, learning Japanese can appear daunting at first. However, here at the Oxford Language Academy, our teachers make learning to speak Japanese easy. Our Conversational Japanese language classes are specially designed for beginners and for those who intend to brush up their conversational Japanese language skills. Through the guidance of our learned teachers, your Japanese learning experience will be smooth and exciting.

The course covers simple Japanese dialogue (through the aid of English translations), basic grammar, vocabulary and expressions. It will also illustrate interpersonal communication etiquette and formalities on how to address others. Even though this class emphasises on the speaking aspect of the Japanese language, it also offers a small portion on the writing of Japanese characters.

Part of learning a language involves embracing its use in its native context and the rich culture behind it. Students get glimpse of the distinct lifestyle and diverse experiences of Japanese culture through the various illustrations of Japanese culture that is presented in every lesson. Classes held are immersive and interactive, enabling students to speak Japanese to one another.

With the use of phonetic exercises, students will learn proper pronunciation of the Japanese language, as well as, speaking in the correct Japanese accent. Our aim is to develop students’ conversational skills and appreciation for Japanese. Students will be able to seamlessly converse by delivering simple sentences and honing a vocabulary of at least 400 words. Hence, at the end of the course, students will be able to construct basic sentences with proper grammatical structure through the correct use of verbs.

Levels

There are 10 levels of Conversational Japanese language class – Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, Level 5, Level 6, Level 7, Level 8, Level 9, and Level 10.

Levels 1 to 5 are approximately equivalent to the Grammar and Vocabulary found in the JLPT N5 Examinations, while Levels 6 to 10 are approximately equivalent to the Grammar and Vocabulary found in the JLPT N4 Examinations. Do note that our courses do not require students to learn the reading and writing of Kanji Characters, and as such, are not complete courses to prepare for the JLPT examinations.
