INTRODUCTION

The Yoshida Institute of Japanese Language offers a wide variety of classes for students seeking to learn Japanese. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an advanced student, we can help you! Come learn Japanese in the exciting city of Tokyo! Full-time, daily intensive classes For students seeking to study Japanese intensively in order to enter a Japanese university, college, vocational school or just to study rigorously, we offer full-time, daily intensive classes. Classes are held five days a week in the morning or in the afternoon. Each class runs for a little over three hours and during that time students work on improving speaking, reading, writing and listening skills. Beginning students focus on basic grammar and speaking skills while students in advanced courses learn to understand TV and radio programs and read Japanese literature. Three-months terms start at the beginnings of January, April, July and October.

Long-term study (2 or more terms)

We make every effort to provide our students with what they need most for their study, along with any assistance they may need to live in Japan. Some students want to learn Japanese to study further at a university or technical college, while other students study primarily for business purposes. We tailor our programs to fit these needs so that every student will be able to use Japanese successfully in the future.

Short-term study (1 term)

This course is for those who can’t study in Japan for a long time. When studying for just one term, citizens of many countries can easily obtain tourist visas for travel to Japan. The application deadline for students wishing to study for just a single term (3 months) is one month before the start of classes. Note: this is also the deadline if you are already in Japan with working visa or spousal visa.
