Objectives for each level

At Hokkaido JaLS, every level aims at learning how to actually use Japanese instead of simply studying it.

Beginner 1 For people who can’t understand Japanese at all, in 3 weeks time, we will focuss on teaching easy and useful Japanese for travelling. Once the level is over, you will be able to intruduce yourself, do shopping or order at restaurants…
Beginner 2 We will work on basic grammar and short sentences. At the end, you can speak about your friends, hobbies and experience.
Elementary You will be able to use the grammar and vocabulary learned in the previous level, Beginner2, with more complexity in order to have a normal conversation. You will learn how to express yourself politely, and talk about your feelings.
Pre-intermediate The Japanese level is becoming more and more difficult, and we like to focuss on the “usable” Japanese instead of the “I understand but I cannot speak” one. Once passed, you can speak about yourself and your country’s culture in comparaison to Japan.
Intermediate From Intermediate, we learn sentence patterns in order to strenghten your conversation skills. Then, this class is taking care of parties’ orgranization, interviews…etc in a word, the Japanese to communicate and exchange.
Upper-intermediate More complex patterns for better oral skills. Also, we don’t ask you to repeat dialogs anymore but to build your own.
Advanced Students interested in this level should consult in advance for our arrangement. We can answer to many propositions such as “Keigo pratice”, “Business Japanese”, “Oral level up”…please let us know during your registration.
