This introduction course is for those who are absolute beginners at the language. You will start to develop your speaking and listening skills as well as some basic Japanese writing. This course will also involve Japanese culture as language and culture as so strongly entwined in Japanese life.

It is planned that this course will be delivered onsite at the Abingdon Campus, subject to latest government advice. Whilst attending our courses onsite, it is imperative that learners adhere to the latest College covid regulations.

You will learn both Kana scripts and some basic Kanji characters will be introduced. You will be able to start to have basic conversations and develop an understanding of protocol through demonstrations and practical exercises. By the end of the course you should feel confident about the basics of numbers, dates and times, introductions, occupations, travel, locations and hobbies.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on 28/10/21

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
