Japanese for Teens


Japanese for Teens Program suits students ages 12 to 17 looking for an independent study or to support their Japanese study in middle school or high school. The complete program consists of 12 levels from Beginner to Advanced, and each level can be completed in one term. Our program will prepare students who aim to take the official Japanese language exams and achieve fluency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing at the completion of the program. Lessons can be customized to suit students’ learning needs, such as preparing for the JLPT exam.

In addition to individual Japanese lessons for teens, we also teach online Japanese classes in small groups with three to four students using Zoom, led by professional native Japanese teachers. Our teachers hold degrees in language training or education, have years of experience in teaching, and have completed Working With Children Check.

Lessons are available from 4:00 PM EST (5:00 PM EDT) till night time daily.
