SUMMER TRAINING

Summer courses in August are for adults over 16 years old. We offer Japanese lessons and cultural studies as well.

Pedagogy

Designed to be resolutely practical, our pedagogy is based on the context setting and practical exercises. It is in no way for building up your knowledge of the grammar or for writing a linguistic manual. It is for obtaining progressive skills necessary in a daily life (from self-introduction to the writing of e-mail that expresses your feelings and to the opening of a bank account).
In this way the trainees will be able to practice what they have learnt during their stay and improve their writing and speaking skills.

Cultural activities

During your stay, you will find yourself in one of the most fascinating cities in the world, Tokyo: symphony of tradition and modernity. Tokyo is a city of open-air architecture competitions. Strolling through the streets of Tokyo you will make discoveries and find a full of surprises. This big city does not have a city centre, but thousands of villages; it has amazingly various areas different from one another.
Because we want your stay to be cultural or simply memorable, we would like to share our passion for this city with you. During the class, we will take you on guided tours to discover unbeaten paths, hidden small corners, historical or super-modern areas of Tokyo.

Accomodation

We offer quite a variety of accommodation options in Tokyo:

Home stay

You stay with a family in Tokyo. This plan is idealistic if you hope for total immersion.

Share House

Depending on your choice we provide you with a private or shared room in a house or an international student residence. You can enjoy yourself communicating with Japanese people or other Japanophiles. The residence has bathrooms, toilets and a shared kitchen so that you can cook your meals.

Appartement

We can propose some studio flats in Tokyo. These flats have the equipment necessary for daily life (stove, oven, refrigerator…). You can rent a flat alone or share one with your friends.
