  • Visual Japanese learning

  • Our Japanese language school has developed the Ezoe method, an original teaching approach that allows students to understand how to build sentences in Japanese in an easier and more efficient way. We use cards with different shapes and colors to help students visualize how Japanese grammar is built based on different parts of speech. This method helps students to think in Japanese rather than trying to translate a sentence from their own language. Paired with our various digital tools, apps and online learning site, students are also able to review and learn lesson content before and after the class — in other words, whenever and wherever they want.
