JASO runs a range of Japanese language classes, aimed for use in business and everyday life, in-house at our offices.

Classes runs in 8-week terms in winter (Jan-Mar), spring (Apr-Jun) and fall (Sept-Nov). Classes run for 90 minutes, and may be at beginner, improver, intermediate, or advanced levels, according to demand.

JASO classes do not have homework or include grades, but you are expected to spend time preparing for each class.

All classes are taught by qualified Japanese language teachers.

JASO also provides Japanese language classes at your company, according to your needs.

Call the office at 503-552-8813 for all further information or to inquire about how to join.

Here’s what our students say:

“I had some very good success with the learning I received here through JASO in Japan, on two recent trips.  It is meeting my objectives.”

“Sensei was an excellent teacher.”

“I really like sensei’s teaching method.  It is superior to the other methods I have had.”

“I’m currently taking lessons at another school and it feels like I’m not learning as much and that the class is half asleep compared to (JASO’s) class.”

“Only speaks in Japanese (except before or after class, or in rare instances). I like this immersion experience because of the business context.”

“Sensei is a great instructor.”
