Learning Nihongo: Online + Classroom

Japan is one of the top tourist Asian destination today. We have plans to visit Japan in the future. It would be of great help knowing at least some basic Nihongo language so we won't have to hire a Nihongo speaking guideWe'd love to see shrines, museums in Kyoto and dine at Dotonbori.

At the most recent travel expo we were able to get travel tips when visiting Japan. Understanding Nihongo may not be required for tourists traveling to Japan but it would be of great help to learn basic Japanese language.

ECC Japanese Language and the University of Perpetual Help (UPH) inked its partnership to provide comprehensive Japanese language education in the Philippines.

ECC Japanese Language Institute is one of the leading educational institutes in Japan which offers a  comprehensive education. ECC has been in the industry for more than 50 years.

Just recently, I heard that there are great job opportunities for medical services in Japan. One of the pre-requisite is to learn the Japanese language. There is also an annual increases in test-takers registering for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). This includes the Philippines, which saw a record 14,062 people register for the test in 2017 (a 21% increase over the previous year), many of whom are studying Japanese in the hopes of working in Japan or getting promoted within a Japanese company.

The educational contents provided by ECC, known as the “UPHSD 4-ECC Nihongo Program,” offers:

  • E-learning materials
  • Mobile educational tools
  • Classes that employ ECC’ s Japanese educational method

The program will be available at the University of Perpetual Help in Las Pinas. Students who wish to work or study in Japan, or find jobs with Japanese companies in the Philippines, will benefit from the Japanese language the course will offer.

To make the e-learning program even more effective, a once-a-week class in English by a Filipino teacher of Japanese is included, giving students a chance to fully internalize what they have learned. This style of program can be offered at a lower cost compared to conventional Japanese-taught courses, making them more accessible for the average student in the Philippines.

The program is made especially for working students. With the blended program, students may opt to study online and attend a classroom Japanese course once or twice a week. UPH and ECC will also assess the student's Japanese language skills and advise them how to go with the program. It may take up to six months to finish the program.
