School


Students will learn “useful Japanese”


At Tokyo Cocoro Japanese Language School,
Students will learn “useful Japanese” in various situations of daily life.
In addition to studying grammar and preparing for JLPT,
you will also practice reading, writing, listening, and speaking in class.

But that is not all. The biggest advantage is that it is a
“school where you can learn the living Japanese language used by natives”!

 


There are three special features in Cocoro


Practice native conversation

The conversation dialogs used in class are original.
Rather than memorizing text examples and conversations, practice various conversations that can be used in everyday situations.

Just sitting down is boring

In the class, not only teachers but also students stand and practice conversation. You can’t imagine yourself just sitting & looking at the board.
Practice the conversation by imagining you really are in that scene. It may be embarrassing at first, but it is really fun to practice acting while speaking.

Let’s see the real Japan

During a lesson of Cocoro School, instead of using only texts that are written in the textbook, “real documents” such as TV and flyers are used to experience real Japanese language every day.
Being able to understand things such as Japanese TV and comics will leave you moved!


Greetings


Message from Principal Chida

What made you take an interest in other countries? For me, I was 6 years old. It was when I saw my first movie from another country.

Whether it’s a movie, a book, a game etc. I think we all have our own motive and I think that’s also the case for wanting to study Japanese. I think there are many reasons for wanting to learn Japanese. There are many Japanese schools here in Japan, because of this I think the reason you stumbled upon us among all those other schools is because there is a bond between us.

I will cherish that bond and will support you to the best of my ability whether that is in Japan or other places so that YOU can flourish. Let’s turn the Japanese you already know into Japanese that you can use. I look forward to meeting you!
