Course Overview 

  

Our afternoon Japanese Level 2 course is an Elementary Japanese course for students who have already completed a Beginners course. This is a less intensive course than our evening 6-week Level 2 Japanese course, allowing you to ease your way into the language at a slower and more relaxed pace. Japanese Level 2 requires that you have previously studied Japanese Level 1 or a course of at least 12 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick Japanese language level test here or check our levels chart. 

 

Our Japanese language classes take place at our school in Covent Garden with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. Evening language classes at IH London are dynamic and interactive as the emphasis is on spoken communication, which is achieved through lots of group work and role-plays. At the same time, there is systematic work on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, so that you can improve on all aspects of the language. Your teacher speaks in the target language throughout, so that you can refine your comprehension and listening skills.
