The SJA Japanese Program provides a friendly, casual and fun-learning environment for both youth and adult students in the community. The program, offered free of charge to students, is led by language instructors and a team of dedicated volunteers. The lessons focus on building basic Japanese skills and learning the culture of Japan through various medium such as text books, online resources, hands-on games, and group activities. Many fluent and near fluent volunteers enhance the students’ learning environment by adding authentic voices of their own heritage and experiences in Japan.
