  • Student photoessay Engaging and customized curriculum: In addition to the text prescribed for the course, YAMASA has developed its own set of highly practical and intellectually challenging materials. The materials themselves feature expressions and material that you won’t find in most textbooks, online portals or even in a lot of Japanese only language study websites.
    In addition to this, the materials are structured with sufficient scaffolding to allow you to get a solid grasp of the concept at hand before reproducing the target language. To see an example of the type of things that you will be studying, please download this photoessay that was written by our AJSP class students.

  • Maximum class sizes of twelve: Due to the cap on class sizes, it can be guaranteed that you will not get lost in the shuffle and that your needs on both an educational and personal front will be appropriately catered for.
    This limit also gives our students ample opportunity to speak during class and have their opinions heard, in addition to hearing other's opinions. Reduced numbers also mean that you will have full access to YAMASA’s team of highly experienced educational professionals.

  • Classes designed to suit student needs: AJSP also features customized classes that are held four times weekly. Customized classes are based on a curriculum designed by the teacher in consultation with the student. As such, they are created in line with student needs. For example, a student may want to use this time to allow their teachers to correct an essay that they have composed, practice Japanese conversation, work on their vocabulary or grammar, or to take a class based on a particular television drama or short story.
