With Japanese language skills, you can get one step closer to the Japanese lifestyle in Cologne.

Japanese courses in Cologne: experience language and culture

In big cities like Cologne, other languages besides German and English are often part of everyday life. Some of them sound quite exotic at first - like Japanese. But whether at the world-famous cathedral or in one of the many Japanese restaurants: Japan's language and culture can be found in many different places in Cologne. If you want to communicate well, you can learn the basics in a Japanese course.

Did you know that Kyoto is one of Cologne's twin cities? The former capital of Japan is still considered one of the country's cultural centers. That's why there is a wide range of cultural events related to Japan in the middle of the Rhineland. Institutions such as the East Asian Museum of Art strive to promote cultural exchange between the countries. With the right Japanese course in Cologne, the exchange is even more successful.
