Course Structure

Our Japanese language school has already produced effective learners of Japanese language. With our flexible system, eclectic teaching methods, and competent teaching staff, we have maintained it. So basically, we have set 5 courses based on the levels of Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). We offer courses from beginner Japanese course to advanced upper course which welcomes all types of learners.

JLPT is a standardized criterion-referenced test, which is taken by non-native Japanese speakers. This test evaluates your skills in the Japanese language, which takers need to pass in order to achieve greater opportunities in Japan.

Thus, we help our students prepare for this exam by enhancing their current level and even help them pursue the next level. Below are our effective Japanese courses that we proudly provide to our valued learners.

Our language school courses assure students to make their study hours very productive. We also always challenge our students to pass each level successfully and efficiently. Thus, varied techniques and strategies are given by our bilingual native teachers. There have already been successful learners, especially the ones who took our beginner Japanese course. Here at Japanese Explorer, we accept and aim to produce successful learners of any level.
