Just as one size does not fit all, no group based curriculum can be a perfect match for the needs, aspirations, strengths and weaknesses of one language learner. ALC offers high quality private lessons at affordable prices with qualified and highly experienced instructors (minimum of 5 years teaching background) either on campus or via skype.
The schedule and curriculum is designed by faculty in full consultation with you to ensure a high degree of customization. Textbooks, materials and study resources are also decided in consultation with you.
All classrooms include air-conditioning and wireless access. Laptops and other resources are on-site. All lessons are 50 minutes duration and the minimum purchase number of classes is just 5. There are discounts available for full-time enrollment (15 lessons/week), off-peak enrollment (non-summer months) or early payment (3 months or more in advance).
Prior to your arrival, or if you are already on-campus in a different program, it is important that you provide as much detail as possible regarding your needs. In addition to our questionnaire, an extended interview is conducted on commencement. It is often advisable to include some testing to accelerate the faculty’s understanding of your proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing, in addition to your needs and preferences. From this information, the faculty can design a curriculum with you – at ALC our faculty have the capability and experience to design a course to suit ANY level of proficiency, from absolute beginner to advanced students of the language who have already passed Level 1/N1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. It is also possible to design curriculum to target specialized fields, for example…
- Japanese for business purposes
- Preparation for the JETRO Business Japanese Test
- Technical Japanese for use in science and engineering fields
- Obtaining Advanced Placement
- Aviation, Tourism and Hospitality
