Foreign language course
(high school students and above)

The “Foreign language course” is a course where you can leisurely spend your time in learning the basics of a foreign language.We meet the needs of those who want to relearn English, those do not want to forget the foreign language they learned while living abroad, and those who wish to learn practical communication skills in their chosen language before travelling abroad.You may be able to participate in the classes held by the Association. These classes are taught by foreigner instructors who have studied under the wing of the association and become proficient in the Japanese language.

The instructor may prepare the textbooks beforehand or ask you to purchase them. We offer face-to-face courses in our salons (see map) and online courses via Zoom. The courses are subject to change in line with the spread of infections of the Novel Coronavirus, so please check the details upon application.

* In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus in the Face-to-Face Classroom, we limit the number of students and maintain an attendance register. The participants are asked to refrain from eating and drinking. Also, they are asked to check their body temperature, wear a mask, and disinfect their hands. We kindly ask for your cooperation in this matter.
