+ Culture Sessions

To truly own a language, it is essential to know the culture in which it was developed. And practical skills are stimulated by using the language in a realistic environment away from the textbook. At We, we offer culture sessions to provide this “environment” for our students. In this session, not only regular coaches but also Japanese students of We English School will participate. This is a great way to develop new knowledge and perspectives while using the Japanese language in a more realistic environment.
