Japanese Course


At Janus Academy, our native and bilingual Japanese teachers encourage young learners of 5 to 18 years olds to pick up the language in a natural way, just like how they acquire their native language by listening and repeating with minimum grammar.

The students will learn all four components of the language – listening, speaking, reading and writing, just like the native Japanese children, but with bite size learning material.
