Japanese for Beginners

Japanese is a popular language and while many people want to learn it, a lot of people want to start that journey by learning basic words and phrases used in everyday life. We have a course that is perfect for this!

Learn Basic Japanese!

This series of courses is designed for beginners who are just starting. Beginning with introducing yourself in Japanese, the course will take you through a number of useful topics and provide simple explanations in English, sample phrases, and valuable vocabulary words. Although you will not be expected to learn the Japanese writing characters, you will see the Japanese words written in the lesson material. However, you will study the ROMAJI version of the language, which is Japanese written with the English alphabet! (How cool is that?)

Study in class or online!

Each course in the series meets just once a week for two (2) hours per meeting and the course lasts for a month, for a total of eight (8) hours of instruction. You can choose to study either in-person in our classroom, or online through ZOOM. You can also choose between a GROUP or MAN-TO-MAN study.

New schedules open each week and so it has never been easier to start a study of Japanese!

How much does it cost?

Each course in the series only costs ₱ 1,999.00 for GROUP and ₱ 3,499.00 for MAN-TO-MAN classes.

The fee includes instruction, materials, and all taxes. We accept payment in cash, GCASH, or PayMaya. Please see our PAYMENT POLICY at the bottom of the page for more details.


After the first course, you may continue through the rest of the entire series so that you can learn enough to speak Basic Japanese!

We also offer a very generous DISCOUNT POLICY for students who want to refer their friends. The more friends who enroll at one time, the more money you can save!
