Japanese Language Course [English Page]

Do you think it is not efficient or practical to learn Japanese from instructors who don’t speak different languages by themselves?
If so, why not try our English-Japanese bilingual instructors!?

All SJA instructors always work in the diverse and multilingual environment where everybody is required to consider how to learn and teach another language with different grammar order and structure. It’s our absolute difference from other Japanese schools that we understand what true language study should look like and what is important to understand / stay with those with different cultures.

If you have felt the things below even once, Seven Seas Japanese Language Academy is the one for you!

I can’t learn Japanese well at common Japanese language schools.
Why do teachers not use English at all when they teach Japanese?
I want to learn Japanese just one or few hours a week as I work everyday!
I want to learn Japanese not in a group class but from my private tutor!
Although I belong to a Japanese language school, I want additional classes or more helpful support!
I simply want to enjoy conversations with my Japanese instructor!

The completely different grammar order and structure of Japanese must be confusing for you. That’s actually the same as the case where Japanese people learn English. Japanese has a totally different grammar structure, so it is necessary to create your “new language brain “. Thus, it is important to know how to train and create your new sense of a different language in your brain.

Oops, are you feeling “why are you the only one who knows and teaches this brain training? ” That’s very simple, as we always teach English to the students who don’t have an English language brain! That’s why we have the know-how on how to switch our language brains between Japanese and English, and how we should train a different kind of language brain. Why not try our proven learning methods? It is our hope and the mission that Japan will become a diverse and more comfortable country for all foreigners. We are dedicated to helping a lot of students not only by teaching languages but by sharing our experiences on how to live in this country.
