Click here to register for the Japanese courses in our language school. 

Our language school offer a variety of Japanese courses from beginner to intermediate ability, offering a range of course types: morning, afternoon and evening courses (1 x Week), crash courses, intensive courses and educational-leave courses (2-5 x Week), conversation courses and language courses for business and travel (1-2 x Week) as well as specialised private one-on-one lessons.

We highly suggest that all students with some Japanese language skills (no matter how little) sit an introductory Japanese test before applying to a course, so that we can place you into a group best suited to your abilities.

Course start dates aren't restricted to semesters, trimesters or quarters but rather run all year round depending on the number of participants.

This allows our students a degree of flexibility with their learning and any information regarding the course timetable is updated daily.

Whether you live in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Lichtenberg or Neuköln, you'll find that our language school is central and easy to get to, nestled right in the heart of Berlin-Friedrichshain.
