Small Group Classes

These are what we offer

Specially Designed Course for each group

We make sure that your courses are designed specifically to your group’s needs. Examples of group courses are for students beginning to learn Japanese, professionals who want to improve their skills for work or business and a group of friends who want to learn Japanese.

Interactive Learning

Each Japanese group lesson is designed based on the learning style of the group. We do role playing which engages real life situations for each group. If the group consists of students who plan to tour in Japan, then you are given scenarios in which you can practice the Japanese language for necessary conversations.

Daily Conversations

Since our classes are specifically for groups of students who can relate to one another, we make sure you have a special time in class to practice your conversation skills. Ten to fifteen minutes per class is dedicated to just chit chat with each other in Japanese. Students are learning while building stronger ties with each other at the same time.

Class Size

The number of students per class plays a significant role in each student’s learning experience. On average, we have about 8 students per class, but for our group Japanese lessons, it depends on the request of the students, or we do the grouping ourselves based on your profiles. We believe that learning is better and efficient when you are with people you are comfortable with.

Added Courses

Since a group class consists of students who share something in common, we offer additional courses that can enhance your learning of the Japanese language better. If you and your friends are fans of Japanese pop culture for example, then we add a course about Japanese pop culture. We make sure you also learn the things you like about Japan.

Why Enroll in a Group Japanese Course?

Many students, especially beginners, are quite shy at first. However, there are some students who are confident and comfortable in learning with their friends or prefer being in a group that is close to their age or profession.

We, at Japanese Explorer, make sure that every group is accommodated according to your learning style and needs. We offer specially designed courses for you and your group, so we make sure that at the end of the course, you get what you are aiming for. Before the Japanese group course starts, we provide a checklist of the things you want to learn or improve.
