The school is located in central downtown “Tenjin” which is the main shopping district. We are less than five minutes by foot from “Tenjin Minami” Subway Station Exit No.6. There is also an abundance of nearby cafes, cheap restaurants and shopping places to spend your free time after class.
At Meiji Academy we have staff that can speak English, German, French, Chinese, Korean and Croatian.
Classes won’t have more than six students, which will enable the teacher to focus more on each individual student.
The main language of teaching will be Japanese, yet our teachers understand English. Meiji Academy teachers are very experienced using many methods such as drawings and role-plays to ensure that even complete beginners will be able to learn Japanese smoothly.
A lesson is 50 minutes long.
Please refer to this sample schedule. Besides we are very flexible providing additional and adjusted schedules for students upon request.
Each and every lesson is tailored to your specific needs and interests!We believe it’s important to meet you where you are in your studies. That means a steady focus on achieving your personal language goals each and every lesson. Your time is valuable! You deserve to end every lesson feeling great about your progress and empowered to continue your journey.
If you’re just starting out, we guide you through all the fundamentals:
- Writing in hiragana, katakana, and even some beginner kanji characters
- Understanding sentence structure, basic grammar, and essential vocabulary
- Speaking and listening through real Japanese conversation
Want to level up your conversation skills? We can help with your pronunciation and overall flow, while covering a wide range of common conversation topics.
Seeking success on the JLPT exam? From N5 - N1, we can customize your experience to focus on the specific grammar and vocabulary of each level. Our teachers know the JLPT in-and-out and can coach you through practice tests to boost your confidence for the real deal.
For beginner and intermediate students, we focus on correcting your mistakes in real time so you can instantly understand difficult concepts and adapt accordingly. We believe this approach is much more effective than grading and reviewing written exams at these skills levels.
Of course, if your goal is to pass the JLPT, we offer in-depth review of practice exams.
This depends largely on your current Japanese skill level and the amount of time and effort you’re willing to put in towards mastering each level. However, even if you don’t yet know hiragana and katakana, with the right amount of effort, we believe you can be ready to pass the N4 level within half a year.
Of course you can! Our school is famous for being flexible and open to your needs.
