Our school offers Japanese language classes on Saturdays during the regular school year (September through June) to students in 1st grade through adult. Classes are held from 9:00am to 12:00pm with 15-minute breaks at 10:00am and 11:00am.

Our classes are adjusted every year to accommodate the skill levels of the students. Typically, the Beginning A Class is designed for students in the 1st or 2nd grade, and the students in this class will be promoted to the Beginning B Class the following year based on performance. Students in 3rd grade or above will be placed in the Beginning C Class if they are learning Japanese for the first time. Students are placed in the Intermediate and Advanced classes, based on their skill levels. The Adult Class is available for those who have already graduated from high school, and the focus in this class is conversation.
