WAHAHA aims to teach
useful Japanese, which
can be used naturally.
WAHAHA Japanese Language School is committed to teaching Japanese that can be used naturally in everyday life. Our classes do not focus on grammar alone, but also encourage awareness of correct usage situations and speaking styles. In addition, WAHAHA's small class sizes enable instructors to actively communicate with all students, resulting in an enjoyable learning experience.
On the first day of school all students complete a level check followed by counselling.
The level check consists of a 60 to 90 minute grammar test and a 30 minute interview. Results are used to determine the student's ability level and discover weak spots. Immediately following the test, teacher and student review the answers together with emphasis on explanation of mistakes. Improvement suggestions are given and the direction of future lessons is decided.
Counselling involves the discussion of student goals and areas of interest. Taking level check results into consideration, students are divided into classes according to ability, thereby facilitating an effective learning environment.
About WAHAHA's lessons
Classes from Monday to Thursday focus on grammar, with Friday classes reserved for conversation lessons. Friday's conversation topics are based upon situations students may encounter in daily life.
While English explanations of new concepts are necessary for beginners, we actively encourage learning Japanese in Japanese once a student's ability is sufficient.
Previous grammar is incorporated alongside new grammar to help reinforce understanding.
Lessons do not strictly adhere to textbook formulas, instead flowing organically to allow for an unconstrained teaching atmosphere.
Conversation classes make use of role-playing to help promote correct understanding of both formal and casual expressions.
"Out Lessons" may also be organized. These classes are held outside school involve activities such as shopping, ordering at a restaurant, etc. and serve to reinforce knowledge in a practical manner. Students in the intermediate/advanced classes will have practical lessons which include speeches and presentations.
This is one of the reasons many chose WAHAHA.
Our school endeavors to create lessons which accommodate each student’s Japanese ability, and classes are divided accordingly.
This may mean that even though a student has applied for a group lesson, their class may become a private class. If this occurs, the lesson will become two hours.
These two hours of one-on-one tuition will efficiently provide the same curriculum and at the same pace as a group lesson.
If a student of the same level joins the class, it will become three hours. We appreciate your understanding.

・During Obon: 8/13-8/15, and Golden Week: 4/29, 5/5, 5/6, the school is open as usual.
