Did you know?

  • There are 3 writing systems in Japanese: the native Japanese alphabets Hiragana and Katakana, and Chinese characters called Kanji.
  • Although Japanese uses Chinese characters, the Japanese language was born in Japan and is not related Chinese - or any other language for that matter.
  • Japanese people actually call their country にほん (Nihon) or にっぽん (Nippon). This roughly translates to "Land of the Rising Sun". The word "Japan" is a foreign word originating from early Portuguese explorers in China.

15-week courses starting January 2022 – book in November and bring a friend half price!

Our Foreign Language course terms are 15-weeks long (with a break for half term), with one 90xminute class per week. Small homework tasks are usually set each week, so this is great way to add language learning into your schedule in a consistent and sustainable way.

In November, you can book with a friend and get the second course half price (equal to a 25% discount per person) so there has never been a better time to sign up. Simply add both courses to your basket and use code "LEARNTOGETHER" to apply the discount. Please note, this offer ends at midnight on 30th November and cannot be applied to existing bookings.
