Japanese Evening Classes

Japanese is the 9th most spoken language in the world. In the last decade, over three million people per year opted to learn this interesting and unique global language. 

Famed for its inherent politeness and etiquette, the Japanese language boasts very few swear words. It features charming quirks such as green apple being translated to ‘ao ringo’, which actually means ‘blue apple’!

Learning Japanese will open your eyes to the wonders of this fascinating culture and the mind of Japanese people.  

Please note classes will be held online until further notice.
