Japanese course is specially designed to cater to those who would like to take up Japanese and learn more about the communication medium of this country. It aims to introduce the students to the new language and eventually enable the students to be able to communicate fluently in the language. We employ progressive and learner-centered teaching methodologies to enhance learning and believe in encouraging students to be actively involved in various classroom activities that allow them to interact with fellow students and their teachers. Partner and group work are standard features of the language classes which are usually restricted in size to ensure maximum individual attention and interaction. This course ensures that the language proficiency is built up gradually through communication and the application of structures, vocabulary and strategies. With these, we want students to look forward to their next language class after every lesson and be able to move up the levels of proficiency.
