Description

Japanese has long been a preferred language in New Zealand education.  We have a lot of ties with Japan, a lot of Japanese people, especially language students, come here, and quite a lot of New Zealanders go off to Japan.  If children learn some Japanese with Euroasia before they start to study the language more formally, they will have an excellent basis on which to build, and almost a guaranteed headstart!

Contrary to what many people imagine, Japanese is not a particularly difficult language to learn, especially in the early stages.  The pronunciation is very straightforward, and the basic words are fairly short and simple.  You can also say quite a lot without learning the trickier grammar points.  Plus we don’t go into the writing system at all.  Euroasia’s children’s classes in Japanese are a great introduction to a really important language.

Teachers on Euroasia’s Japanese courses for children use a variety of games and activities to make learning Japanese fun!  Children have a great time taking part in various activities designed to get them using the Japanese language without really thinking about it.  We use role plays, drama, songs, rhymes and lots of games to stimulate and excite.   Sometimes, the children also make things and even put on a little presentation!  The Japanese teachers are skilled at selecting a variety of activities to keep children purposefully occupied throughout their Japanese lessons.
