Give your child a head-start in our globalized world with Japanese language lessons. Offering a rich, unique culture and the third largest economy in the world, Japan is a powerhouse on the global stage. Learning Japanese will open opportunities and fire up your child’s cultural curiosity, while building practical skills and boosting problem-solving, critical-thinking and listening skills.
We offer four programs, based around the age of participants, and tailored to their developmental stages with age-appropriate lessons, activities and materials.
A boost for the brain
Research has found that children who learn a second language may be more creative, better at problem solving, faster learners, and find it easier to connect with different cultures.
Children also find it much easier than adults to learn a second (or third) language because the language center of their brain is still in development.
