Japanese Lessons Glasgow

Live Language offers Japanese courses in Glasgow for you to learn or improve your language skills. Our Japanese courses are designed to provide you with the skills and language knowledge you need to be able to use Japanese in a variety of situations.
For course info and prices see tabs above.
If you are learning Japanese for travelling, working, living in Japan, or just because you love the culture and their people, these courses will help you develop the knowledge to use Japanese in context and communicate with native speakers as well as other speakers of Japanese as a foreign language.
Our Japanese classes are small to ensure that you get the highest level of attention from your teachers. The classes are taught in a communicative way, and integrate vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation with speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. You will be also learning Japanese calligraphy and pronunciation using the hiragana, katakana and kanji alphabet systems.
You can read the learning outcomes for each level here.
Are you looking for a more personalised learning journey? Do you feel like group lessons are great, but you might also need some extra support?   Is grammatical terminology a mystery?   Do you struggle with which study techniques work best for you?  At Live Language, we have developed new, personalised learning packages to ensure you get the most from a course with us.
If you wish to have a more personalised learning journey, we have three new course packages especially designed with you in mind. We are also offering a brand new Personal Study Booklet for you to track your language progress, goals, get specific learning advice.  You can use it as your personal guide to help you learn a foreign language.
