Our School organizes several extracurricular activities. We think that learning is not only a simple studying language in classroom, but also students make experience touching Japanese culture may provide them a richer cultural background that will reflect in a deeper understanding of the language. In a year we organize 3 different extracurricular activities and there are 2 training camp before graduation. Participation to events is free. “All students are equal and everybody should be able to relate to Japanese culture” with this ideal in our mind we provide students the opportunities to make their own experience.
