Japanese courses

japan ref_OSM




Japanese language is part of a language group that includes Korean or Turkish. The language has very few exceptions, which makes it easier to learn.

The Japanese nouns do not have gender, case or even plural. The particles, small appendages placed after the nouns, mark the grammatical function of the nouns. In addition, the verbs do not have conjugations after persons.

What’s also unusual is the unique writing system, which is actually a mixture of three writing systems: Chinese characters called kanji, hiragana, as well as katakana characters, which were developed in Japan by simplifying the kanji. Thus, Chinese has had a great influence on the Japanese language, which is also noticeable in the vocabulary.

Japanese has a strong social character with its polite language. For example, the word "I" can vary depending on who is speaking to whom, e.g. "watashi", "ore", "boku", etc. In our Japanese course, general polite language is taught so that learners can communicate appropriately in all situations.
