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.
