Course Overview

 

Online Japanese Club is an Advanced course for students who have studied the Japanese language to a high level and wish to work on fluency. Online Japanese Club requires that you have previously studied a course of at least 240 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick Japanese language level test here or check our levels chart.

 

Our Online Japanese language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
