The WAHAHA Way: Our Students Always Come First

WAHAHA is a small-sized Japanese school in Fukuoka, allowing us to maintain a cozy, friendly and family-like atmosphere. Not only does this allow us to be more flexible and focus on each and every one of our students' needs on an individual basis, but we also strive to:

 A warm and open learning environment

At WAHAHA, many different nationalities, backgrounds and ages are represented among our students. But what all our students have in common is that everyone is eager to learn. WAHAHA provides the best learning environment for each student to accomplish his/her goals.

 Personalized Curriculums

Our small class sizes give us the unique advantage of ensuring that you are in the very right course level for your ability. If at any time you feel your level placement is not right for you, just let us know and we will make sure you are in the appropriate course for your ability level.

   Maximum communication with our students

We understand the importance of giving students the support they need and maintain ongoing communication with each student to ensure that any difficulties which may come up during their studies are resolved.

   Specialized Programs and Experienced                         Instructors

In order to help students meet their individual goals, we provide a variety of programs such as JLPT prep, business Japanese lessons, lessons specifically designed for working holiday visa holders, internships, and more! Our teachers are also fully-qualified to teach Japanese at a variety of levels to ensure that you receive the education necessary to succeed. 

   Student Life Support

Studying at WAHAHA does not stop once you leave the classroom. In addition to the carefully selected textbooks used in class, we also provide supplementary educational materials and other information useful for day-to-day life in Japan as well as for accomplishing personal study goals and/or furthering self study.

Our Japanese classes do not focus on grammar alone, but also encourage awareness of correct usage situations and speaking styles.
