Japanese Language Classes

Registration for Term 3 (April) is now open!

At the Japan Foundation, Toronto, we offer various Japanese language courses based on the Japan Foundation Standard for Japanese Language Education (or “JF Standard” – for more information, please click here). Through studying in our language courses, you will learn to complete various “Can-do” in Japanese!

JFT Online MARUGOTO Japanese Language Courses

These are our year-long, weekly courses using the textbook series Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture, which was developed by the Japan Foundation. With an emphasis on spoken communication and peer-learning, students can progress from Starter (A1) to Intermediate (B1).

JFT Online Teacher-Support Japanese Language Courses

These courses are for learners who would like to primarily study by themselves, but have the support of an instructor and their peers. Students will have an online meeting three times a term to converse in Japanese and practice what they have learned and for the rest of the term they will study and complete assignments on their own using the Japan Foundation’s FREE online e-learning resources.
