workshop hashi-challenge

In workshop session, you will experience Japanese culture and how you can approach the culture and customs.

At Tourist Attraction session, for example, we introduce new idea for your destination. Of course, Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto are attractive, but don’t you think you want to go to different destination from your friends and you tell them about your unique story in Japan? As our Japanese teachers and staff came from different part of Japan and have travelled around in Japan, we are able to vary travel attractions and tourist destinations to bring to you. Also, you will be able to learn useful Japanese phrases in travel situation at the session. You haven’t studied Japanese before? That’s not a matter!! We teach you some Japanese as ‘phrases’ but not grammar structures in specific situations. For instance, at a restaurant, what kind of phrases you need to use? ‘Can I have this?’ ‘What is this?’ ‘How much is this?’ etc. In Japanese, 「これください」「これはなんですか」「いくらですか」etc. Then we will practice a little bit in conversation.

Like above, all workshops are organised information section and practical section.

If you are currently studying Japanese, workshop allows you to develop your language skill as well as culture understandings. As we believe that a language belongs to a culture, let’s join fun activities outside of the class, but it is still like a fun ‘class’.
