Practical Conversation Course Plus (in Summer Courses)

This course is designed to steadfastly improve your conversation skills in an enjoyable atmosphere. In the classes, you will practice a lot of conversation, so you will be able to speak a surprisingly large amount of Japanese in a short period of time. In addition to three conversation-focused lessons, the students will participate in activities twice a week.

Very interactive – better for learning.
