Japanese Language Coursesserving Nishinomiya & Hyogo

English Space offers weekly Japanese language courses in Nishinomiya for learners at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level. Class sizes are kept small, and students are given a simple placement test to find the best class at their current ability. (Placement test questions are written in Japanese, so students must at least be able to read hiragana and katakana.)

Classes are held in the Kenshinkan building, a minute's walk south of Hankyu Nishinomiya Kitaguchi station. (Map)
