    Since we use English at first to make lessons more effective and productive, you can take a class in a less stressful atmosphere. As the lessons progress, we use much more Japanese.
  • Original materials
    We use lots of MLC-produced materials to practice more effectively besides the textbooks. Lots of original worksheets, homework and quizzes are also used.
  • We can offer you the most suitable course.
    We have an interview with each student at first. So we ask you about your learning experience, objectives, course of interest, your availability and so on. Then we check your grammar level, speaking level and Kanji level. After the interview, we suggest the most suitable course and lesson plan for you.
  • Daily conversation, business conversation, preparation for JLPT
    We can offer various kinds of courses to suit a student's needs. For example, those who want to study Japanese for the first time, those who want to improve total communication in Japanese, those who require business Japanese, or those who want to pass JLPT. You can choose the course based on your own needs.
