10 Japanese language schools that offer cheap courses

According to this article, Japanese is ranked number one in terms of most difficult for native English speakers to learn. As someone who has tried to learn Japanese by themselves while having no background in Mandarin/Chinese (which makes Japanese easier to pick up), I can attest to this.

That’s why going to a Japanese language school and receiving some formal education can actually be helpful. It forces you to be exposed to the language on an almost constant basis and is great for those who lack the discipline to keep up with self-study.

Studyramen has compiled this list of 10 Japanese language schools you can consider attending for you to be one step closer to being a polyglot (sort of) or to finally be able to consume Japanese media in its rawest form.

Do note most of these classes are still online due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation. Check out each school’s website for updates on their physical class availability.

JCS Japanese Language School website

Probably the most well-known Japanese language school in Singapore is this one by the JCSS (Japanese Cultural Society Singapore). Registration for their Japanese classes only opens twice per year (Nov and May), which means slots get taken up fast.

What makes this Japanese language school popular is that it doesn’t just teach you the language, but also gives you immersive cultural experiences (they’re not known as the JCSS for nothing!) such as learning how to wear a kimono and yukata, and partaking in a Japanese tea ceremony among other things.
