About this course
The Level 1 course is for absolute beginners. English is used as the medium of instruction. This conversational course also uses the romanised Japanese alphabet.
In addition to covering simple Japanese dialogue (through the aid of English translations), basic grammar, vocabulary and expressions, the course will also illustrate interpersonal communication etiquette and formalities on how to address others. Even though this group class emphasises on the speaking aspect of the Japanese language, it also offers a small portion on the writing of Japanese characters.
Students will receive a Certificate of Completion upon completion of the course, if they meet the minimum requirements of 70% attendance.
Students requesting direct entry to any course beyond Level 1 must undergo a placement test. Click here to enquire.

With globalisation bringing people from various parts of the world together, it is crucial for businesses to adapt and be prepared for new opportunities that may come with this change in environment. Customers coming from different parts of the world may not always understand English, which may result in a language barrier between your business and your potential partners or clients.
