KAI's best practice to teach Japanese language

We at KAI have analyzed foreigner's Japanese language lives. We are researching and developing a program which will enable foreigners to cope with the various problems encountered in Japan and which will allow foreigners to acquire communication skills to solve problems by themselves, without losing their own original identity.

In particular, we believe first and foremost that being able to maintain high levels of motivation is an extremely important factor in order to raise the effects of student's study. We incorporate into our program planning and use in our class management psychological theories and techniques such as cross cultural understanding, exchange analysis, coaching, and communication skills etc.

KAI Japanese Language School teaches Japanese language with the Direct Method. The reasons for employing it include there are many Japanese expressions that cannot be put into other words, it improves the ability to understand Japanese more, and the more you progress in your studies, the more you will be able to use natural Japanese that sounds "untranslated", etc. We understand you, especially beginners, feel worried, but we are sure you get used to it soon. So please enjoy our Japanese environment.

It's possible to observe multiple levels. And of course, it's free. Even after your enrollment, if you think the level dones't match you, please feel free to let us know.
