Japanese courses

in Barcelona

All four language skills speaking, listening, writing and reading are integrated in our Japanese courses, the same way you encounter them in real life. We work in small groups, since we want to adjust ourselves to each student’s learning evolution. Since everyone studies Japanese because of different reasons or needs, we take into account your particular interests in order to motivate you.

Our Japanese language courses are available for all levels. If you are not an absolute beginner, you will take a level test before the start of the course. You will be placed in a group that corresponds with your own level of Japanese. Our teachers are native speakers with a University degree and many years of experience in teaching Japanese.

We offer extensive courses during the academic year, intensive summer courses and private courses.

If you are looking for a customized in-company course, please contact us for a price quote.

Working at Versión Original: since 2016

“I used to live in Kyoto but was born in Shizuoka. I studied philology and education at Kyoto University. I came to Barcelona to learn languages and art in an international environment.

I started working as a Japanese teacher more than 15 years ago. I love teaching my mother tongue and be in touch with students who are fond of my country. I also learn a lot from my students too. ”

Favourite Japanese expression: “失敗は成功の元 (shippaiwa seikounomoto). It means that we can learn a lot or succeed after being wrong and having a bad experience.

Favorite animal: white bear
