Japanese for Middle & High School Students

We will meet your unique needs and help you reach your goal.

We assist middle and high School students to build a solid foundation and become life-long foreign language learners. We utilize the most current learning materials to meet the interests and intellectual level of each student. Our small class size enables them to receive personalized instruction and enjoy interactions with their classmates. Most graduates of JAPANESQ continue to learn Japanese in their college education.

Student Voice

Taking classes at JAPANESQ was a great experience. The small class size meant lots of personalized instruction. Learning Hiragana and Katakana before taking college courses was very advantageous, and allowed me to focus on more advanced grammar, vocabulary, and Kanji. JAPANESQ was also a great way of meeting people with similar interests.
