[Super-J® Coach Association Authorized Method ]

The purpose of this course is for beginners to acquire the ability to handle an everyday conversation in Japanese, using a method that is not only fun but also efficient. It’s true. There are many things to remember and understand when learning Japanese. And many ordinary schools teach Japanese grammar first.

Learners at that kind of school always have to work hard to memorize some words, paying attention to the correct grammatical rules at the same time.

It is not easy for beginners to learn long sentences.

But don’t worry about the grammar. Japanese grammar is more flexible than you would think. If you know many words, you can communicate in Japanese and convey your intentions.

  • We believe the most important task for mastering a language is memorizing vocabulary.
  • You will master more than 1,000 basic words for daily life conversation in this course.

You’ll start to communicate in Japanese using single words, then learn how to make sentences, before moving onto writing Japanese scripts.

Super-J® learning method has three features.
  • Utilization of our scientifically-based memory magic learning method (MAMA)
  • Making associations with knowledge and ideas from English that have been incorporated into Japanese.
