Course Overview 


Online Japanese Levels 29&30 is an Upper-Intermediate Japanese course for students who have been studying the Japanese language for quite some time and who are wanting to progress to a more advanced level. This is an intensive Japanese course allowing you to take two Japanese levels in 10 weeks and progress more quickly. Online Japanese Levels 29&30 requires that you have previously studied Japanese Level 28 or a course of at least 336 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick Japanese language level test here, or check our level chart.


Our Online Japanese language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
