Language Classes

The Centre offers Japanese Language Classes for all ages, starting with kindergarten right up to adult. If you want to learn Japanese, introduce your child to the Japanese heritage, maintain your Japanese Language skills or just have an interest in the Japanese culture, these language classes are for you!

For high school students Grades 9 – 12 we offer 3 levels of Japanese instruction, each fully eligible for a Manitoba Department of Education Language Credit, if they pass the final exam.
