Course Overview

 

Online Japanese Level 2 is a Lower Elementary Japanese course for students who have already completed a Beginners course. Online 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 level 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.
