Survival Japanese Class for Tourists (Tokyo Only)

If you don’t speak Japanese, visiting Japan can be a daunting experience. In an intensive 50-minute class at our convenient downtown Tokyo location, our experienced teachers will guide you through the basics you need to get by as a tourist, including both Japanese language skills and practical advice. Avoid the mistakes most people make, and enjoy your time in Japan to the full!

Lessons are private, and focus on just the topics you want, so you don’t waste any time. Most teachers speak English as well as Japanese, so you’ll have no problem making yourself understood. Our school is conveniently located just a few minutes’ walk from Shinjuku Station, and classes can be booked as soon as tomorrow!
