The Japanese Communication program uses CLT (Communicative Language Teaching) methodology to empower the learner with the skills required to communicate effectively in Japanese.
The GEOS Montreal Curriculum is made up of 15 20-hours levels, followed by JLPT preparation classes.
Beginner to Intermediate: Introduces the learner to basic structures, verb tenses, small talk, and conversational techniques. At the completion of the course, the learner will be able to carry on simple conversations in Japanese, to understand basic instructions and to discuss topics such as weather, prices, likes and dislikes.
Advanced: Builds on the skills of the Beginner and Intermediate classes, developing more complex sentence structures and strengthening vocabulary, improving pronunciation, self-expression and listening comprehension. The Advanced Class also allows the student to develop a better understanding of the formal use of Japanese. We also have the JLPT Preparation Course available.
Intermediate students may join classes in progress. Our next courses for beginners will begin the weeks of September 8th and November 3rd.
Japanese for Busy People:
Hi, my name is Yuki. I'm from Tokyo, Japan! Nice to meet you! At first I couldn't speak English but after 2 months I can speak better because the teachers are very helpful. I like GEOS and the teachers. Thank you.
