Outline of the curriculum
Our school is aimed at acquiring "japanese that can be used" that can be used both in the university and in the general public.
It is not just Japanese that can get good points on the test, but it is characterized by a practical curriculum that acquires four skills (reading, writing, listening, and talking) that are not the same as Japanese people.
In the beginner's class, which is the foundation of Japanese language ability, we use J.Bridge, which has a reputation as a textbook for developing four skills, and our own supplementary materials.
For learners who use the most popular Japanese textbook "Everyone's Japanese" in Japan and abroad, and learners who studied at J.Bridge, the test of "reading, writing, and conversation" that questions the operational skills of Japanese has proven that there is a clear difference (Takasaki: 2014", "Effective Elementary Japanese Learning").
(Evidence: Excerpts from the paper)
As mentioned above, students who studied in "Everyone's Japanese (MN)" had a score ratio of 69.9% for the "Reading, Writing, and Conversation" test, which questions practical skills, compared to the "Words and Grammar" test, which asks for knowledge. The number of students who studied at J.Bridge (JB) is 97.9%, which is 28% different in japanese practical ability.
Students who studied at J.Bridge go on to the desired course and are active at the fore in their respective fields even after graduating from university or vocational school.
Features of the class
Instead of the general "grammar stacking type" textbook, we use practical Japanese textbooks to improve the four skills "reading, writing, listening, and talking".
Distributing audio teaching materials to everyone. Pronunciation instruction is also thorough. As the baby learns the language, it learns with "ears" and "mouths", and "natural real language" is learned.
Large monitors are installed in each classroom. You can learn the meaning of each word and the scene where you use expressions from the screen projected on the monitor.
I think that there are a lot of people who think that "Japanese is difficult to use kanji". Our school has its own kanji teaching materials to learn from pictures. You can enjoy learning how to write kanji and its meaning by looking at the pictures projected on a large monitor.
In addition to the classes held in the classroom, we also conduct social studies tours to learn about Japanese technology and industry, school trips to learn about history and culture, tea ceremony, calligraphy, kimono wearing, and other experiential meetings.
