Our 5 Star Reviews
Gabby Rondelli

“I have just finished Japanese L1 course at Lingo and it was absolutely awesome! Classes are taught in a fun and engaging way and at the end of 6 sessions I am already able to read the hiragana! Mami Sensei is the best! She is very attentive and genuinely interested in your progression, always willing to help and provide you the best level of tuition ! At the end of the sessions we always do something related to the Japanese culture, here below is a photo of my favourite one: Shodo!"

 

What are the benefits of learning Japanese?

Regardless of what Japanese level you start at, booking time with a Japanese tutor has a number of great benefits. In addition to helping you meet new people and improving your skillset, taking lessons allows you to interact with Japanese speakers on a deeper level, fully understanding the culture in ways you cannot in English. Take a look below to see our favourite reasons for studying Japanese language.

Study Japanese Culture

Half the fun of taking Japanese lessons is learning about the country’s culture. Japanese culture is one of the most unique in the world and understanding the language allows you to fully immerse yourself in the fashion, martial arts and business etiquette of this fascinating country.

Our language centre regularly holds events and creates content designed to help our students better understand the Japanese way of life. From anime to temples, kimonos to samurais, we help our Japanese learners discover more about the elements of culture that mean most to them. 

Japanese Language & Business

Many large, international corporations are either based in Japan or have branches there. If your dream job involves working at a big company like Sony, Nintendo or Coca-Cola, learning a second language like Japanese can create more job opportunities. As someone who is fluent in both English and Japanese, you’ll have more career choices than someone who only speaks English.

Furthermore, learning to read and write in Japanese can give you a greater understanding of the country's history as well as modern Japanese business culture. Anyone looking to do business in Japan will benefit greatly from these skills.

Pass the JLPT Exam

JLPT is the official qualification for assessing the Japanese language ability of non-native speakers. After taking the test you are assigned a level, indicating whether you are a Japanese beginner or a more advanced student. Getting a JLPT qualification looks great on any CV or job application and is a great way for students to assess their progress when learning the language. 

At the LingoClass Japanese School, we  can help you prepare for and pass the JLPT  test in a relaxed, fun environment with native Japanese teachers. For more information on how to pass JLPT, where to book and what to expect, check out the link below.

Travelling in Japan

Japan is not only a beautiful country, steeped in rich history and culture, it's also home to some of the most welcoming people on Earth. It is perhaps unsurprising then that so many people choose to travel to Japan every year  to explore its sprawling cities, natural wonders and intricate local dishes.

Studying Japanese in the UK can help to build a strong language base that you can expand through travelling or even living and working in Japan. Our Japanese tutors are all highly skilled in helping you communicate quickly and effectively from day one. Get in touch with us today to find out more.
