Akihabara News (Tokyo) — The Intercultural Institute of Japan, a short stroll from JR Akihabara Station, has launched an online program for basic Japanese language lessons.
The Covid-19 pandemic had impacted the entire globe, cutting off most international travel opportunities and often isolating people within their own homes. Businesses in a range of industries have been scrambling to adapt to the new realities and the new lifestyles.
Fortunately, however, innovative companies are now stepping forward to meet social needs and, among Japanese language schools, the Intercultural Institute of Japan, already known among international students as one of the most enjoyable and effective places to gain a basic grasp of the language, is now offering flexible programs of online instruction.
The new program is called Chikamichi Online Japanese, which the company explains refers to a chikamichi (shortcut) both to a study abroad experience and to the students’ dreams of walking the road toward mastery of the Japanese language.
