Saturday Youth Classes are Now Enrolling

It’s time to enroll for Fall 2022 Term — Classes will be online, plus in-person Cultural Events!

We will be doing our usual, 17 week term mostly online; but we’ve scheduled out four times for the school year (twice this term) where we plan to hold cultural events at our host institution the Buddhist Church of Sacramento. We will be providing a variety of classes for elementary aged to high school students who have little or no prior knowledge of the Japanese language.

Classes will be taught by our native Japanese Sensei and will be based on having two periods each week.  One class will be focused primarily on Japanese as a second language, while the second will be focused more on Japanese cultural information.  Unlike other conversational Japanese classes, Japanese alphabets (Hiragana and Katakana) and Kanji will be taught to the students.  Students will be instructed how to speak Japanese, as well as how to read and write it.

Class Schedule:

1st period 9:00 am – 9:55 am
2nd period 10:05 am – 11:00 am
