The General Course is designed for passionate and eager students who want to improve in all aspects of Japanese language. This course is based on a balance between the four necessary skills of language: Speaking, Listening Comprehension, Reading and Writing. College student visas are available and provided.


However, a high school diploma or equivalent credential is required for visa applications. This Course is highly recommended for those who wish to improve their Japanese for the long-term.


General Course 01

The Curriculum

KAI has eight “levels” of proficiency.  In addition to the established eight levels, KAI has a very flexible curriculum which incorporates the students’ needs and personal goals. This course is highly focused on developing language skills within a short period of time.


In KAI classrooms, we enroll young, forward-minded citizens from all over the world.
For each of the eight levels you complete, you will receive a certificate.


KAI also provides opportunities to practice Japanese learned in class in programs such as Free Talking, Leader’s Talk, Open Class, in essay writing workshops and in discussion workshops.


KAI and DLS (Digital Learning System) (iPAD for KAI students!)


KAI Japanese language school is continually striving to embrace innovative, modern learning techniques. This is why we incorporate modem technology such as the iPad (shown above) into our curriculum. With KAI DLS (Digital Learning System), our original study materials have been transformed for a better learning experience and KAI is committed to constantly augmenting the platform.


Optional Classes


KAI Japanese Language School offers optional classes for the current General Japanese Course to meet the needs of each student.
