Philosophy or Concept  |  理念

Digital Language School is a unique online language school that allows students to learn Japanese as if they were in Japan, no matter where they are. The course utilizes a state-of-the-art teaching style that is unique to Digital. To learn a language, it is very important to know the culture of the country. By learning not only Japanese grammar but also culture and customs at the same time, you will gain a deeper understanding of the language.

This school is based on self-directed learning so that students and working people can study Japanese. You do video quizzes and complete homework assigned each class to consolidate your learning. Therefore, you are not required to meet face-to-face for four hours every day as in a regular Japanese language school, but rather study at your own pace.

In this way, we want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to learn Japanese language. 

このDigital Language Schoolは、オンラインの利点を生かし、どこにいても、日本にいるかのように、日本語を学習することができるのが大きな特徴です。デジタルならではの映像や音声を活用した最先端の授業スタイルで学習を進めます。言語を学習するには、その国の文化を知ることがとても大切です。日本語の文法だけでなく、文化や風習を同時に学習することで、より深い理解につなげます。



OUR GOAL  |  目標

We aim to help learners who have started studying Japanese from zero to pass the JFT-Basic or JLPT N4 Japanese Language Proficiency Test. The pace of learning varies from person to person, but our curriculum is designed so that students can pass the test within 6 months. This Japanese language proficiency is said to be the minimum level of Japanese required to live in Japan.

Many learners are confused by the "written" and "spoken" aspects of the Japanese language. In Japanese, "written" and "spoken" language differ in some areas. In traditional Japanese teaching methods, students learn the correct "written" form of Japanese, so when conversing with Japanese people, they sometimes have difficulty understanding the content of the conversation. In this course, the emphasis is on the "spoken" language while also learning the "written" language, so that students can enjoy conversing in Japanese while learning.

In addition, "writing" kanji is an advanced Japanese skill, and this is one of the things that many Japanese language learners have trouble with. Since this course is designed for beginner-level Japanese language learners, "kanji writing skills" are omitted. The focus of the course will be on being able to read kanji and recognize kanji when typed on a computer.

The goal is to enable first-time learners of Japanese to pass JFT-Basic and JLPT N4 efficiently and without difficulty.

For those who have passed JFT-Basic,N4 and wish to study Japanese further, we also offer an Intermediate Japanese N3 level course. The table below shows the level of Japanese language proficiency for the B2 level. 4 months after passing the JFT-Basic N4 course, students will aim to obtain the N3 level.

日本語の勉強を0から始めた学習者が、まずは、日本語能力試験であるJFT-Basicまたは、JLPT N4に合格できることを目指します。学習ペースは、人それぞれですが、6か月以内に合格できるようにカリキュラムを組んでいます。この日本語力は、日本で生活をする際の最低限度の日本語力と言われています。



日本語を初めて学習する人が、無理なく、効率的にJFT-Basic、JLPT N4を取得できることを目標としています。
