Learn Japanese Language Skills

In a world that grows ever smaller with the usage of technology and media, it is clear we need to build bridges of harmony and understanding. By learning Japanese language skills you can expand your experience of understanding, harmony, and community in this mutli-cultural, multi-ethnic world.

Beginner and Advanced Classes

At Tenri Cultural Institute we accommodate children and adults with little or no knowledge of the Japanese language as well as students with advanced Japanese language ability.

Our unique teaching method developed over the last 40 years at the prestigious Tenri University employs traditional instruction with audio-visual aids to immerse students in the Japanese language.

Flexibility in courses and schedules

  • Career Enhancement We offer short and long-term study to help you further career goals, gain employment in a Japanese company, or simply to help prepare you for a trip to Japan.
  • Flexible Schedules We offer day and night classes during the week as well as weekend classes. See current schedule.
  • Small Classes In order to address the individual needs of our students, even our most popular classes have a class size limit of 15. Most of our classes average 3 to 5 students.
