Effective Japanese Language Learning

Learn Japanese with Japanese Language Courses

Kon'nichiwa - The Japanese language is widely spoken by the approximately 120 million people living in Japan as well as by the Japanese living in Hawaii and on the North and South American mainlands.

Japanese is distinguished by a complex system of honorifics with verb forms and specific vocabulary to indicate the relative status of the speaker, the listener, and persons mentioned in the conversation. Also spoken as a second language by the Chinese and the Japanese people, the Japanese language has a relatively small sound inventory and a lexically significant pitch-accent system.

Globibo Provide 5 levels of Japanese Language i.e, N5 (Funda) Level, N4 (Basic) Level, N3 (Intermediate) Level, N2 (Advanced) Level, and N1 (Super Advanced) Level. If you are not sure about your Japanese Language Level go through our online Test

Here’s a table to give you an overview of the Japanese language levels as per the CEFR:

  • N5 Level = A1 level as per CEFR
  • N4 Level = A2 Level as per CEFR
  • N3 Level = B1 Level as per CEFR
  • N2 Level = B2 Level as per CEFR
  • N1 Level = C1 to C2 Level as per CEFR

Globibo’s Japanese Language courses are designed to help you prepare for JPLT i.e, the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.

If you are interested to explore the Japanese culture, learning the language is a great start. Know more about the importance of learning a new language in our blog - ‘Learning a New Language Leads to Better Understanding of a Different Culture’

The uniqueness of Globibo’s Japanese Language Learning

Here, at Globibo, you are encouraged to immerse yourself in the language. What is immersion in the language?

  • It is one of the most common and effective ways to learn a new language.
  • You will attempt to learn the Japanese language in an environment (be it face-to-face or online) using just that language.
  • It could be either total immersion (where all your lessons are taught in the Japanese language) or partial immersion (where your lessons are taught in a blend of the Japanese language and your native language). Generally, this is left to the discretion of the instructor but total immersion is encouraged from the first day of the lesson, be it at beginner or advanced level.
  • Through this concept of immersion, you will learn the Japanese language by absorbing yourself in context, e.g. people you meet, places you go to, daily activities, etc. Learning in context enables better language retention as you can relate to the context that the language is produced.
  • You will feel daunting when you first begin class as the instructor conducts the class in the Japanese language. But fear not! Our instructors are well trained to assist you in building your confidence and fluency at each lesson.
  • However, as a learner, you must remember that success in learning the Japanese language is not only through this concept of immersion, but also through regular study and revision.

Japanese Language Course Instructors

Our Japanese Language classes are conducted by experienced native (a-language) Japanese instructors. Our charming instructors have to pass strict criteria set by the Globibo Academic Board in regards to formal qualifications and experience. The key evaluation criteria are 1) formal qualification in teaching Japanese, 2) experience in teaching Japanese Language Courses and 3) native language (a-language) / cultural background. Based on those criteria all instructors are reviewed before the initial course as well as periodically after receiving customer/student feedback.

Japanese Language Course Material

We enrich all our Japanese language courses with a variety of great learning aids which have been passionately developed for improved language learning. The learning aids include the glorious GlobiBook, GlobiCars, GlobiMaps, GlobiQuiz, and apps like GlobiLearn or GlobiPedia. Furthermore, for industry-specific programs, we have customized a broad spectrum of professional Japanese Learning aids. Those Japanese learning aids help the student to achieve faster learning progress and success for whatever learning purpose.

Japanese Language Course Approach

Globibo has conceptualized GLAM as an advanced method of language acquisition and we use this method for our Japanese Courses. This method blends the latest knowledge in learning and teaching methods based on neuroscience with the experience of thousands of instructors and students around the world. For details on the GLAM approach, please contact us. While Japanese Language Courses are aligned to other Japanese Language Proficiency Tests (JLPT), we also use the classification of CEFR to ensure consistency between the learning levels. A standard Japanese Language Course consists of 12 lessons of 1.5-2 hours which might not be sufficient for passing potential proficiency tests like JPTL (for such tests additional preparation lessons might be required). We do offer private and group Japanese Language Courses. Certainly, all Japanese Language Courses. Certainly all Japanese Language Courses are based on Globibo's world-class Language Course Material.
