Japanese classes for schoolchildren:

School children are divided, according to their level of Japanese, in small groups of 3~6 pupils. They start with Hiragana and Katakana, and move on to Kanji learning.

Kokugo textbooks (textbooks approved by the Ministry of Education) are used, and children will learn to write and read with reasonable speed and swiftness, while being encouraged to speak Japanese all the time.

The aim is to learn while having fun. Games, word games, poetry and audio materials help stimulate the children's imagination. More reading material will be provided to strengthen Kanji recognition.

Current time-tables are as follows.
