Beginner to Advanced Japanese Language Classes:


- Japanese as a Heritage Language (JHL)
Our classes are divided into tracks, allowing us to teach children of all backgrounds in the Japanese language. One track is for learners of Japanese as a Heritage Language (JHL), designed for students who regularly hear and speak Japanese in their home environments.

- Japanese as a Foreign Language (JFL)
A second track is for learners of Japanese as a Foreign Language (JFL), which is designed for students with less background in Japanese. Some JFL students may speak and hear some Japanese at home, while others have very little exposure.

The difference between JHL and JFL students is a subtle one. Both tracks teach all of the core language skills, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Our Educational Philosophy:

Since becoming an independent school, OCG has been fortunate to have the guidance of a team of curriculum advisors from California State University Long Beach. Our new advisors have helped to construct an innovative and highly effective approach to teaching Japanese. Our approach is based on the following elements:

- Providing a Total Language Environment 
- Creating Lifelong Learners of Japanese 
- Creating Effective Curriculum Materials

Japanese Language Learning Classes for Children and Adults:
- Children's Japanese Classes (Elementary school age)
- Junior & Senior High School Japanese classes (Foreign language credit available)
- Adult Japanese Language Classes
- Japanese as a Foreign Language (for beginner students)
- 'Japanese as a Heritage Language' (for students with some Japanese)
- Japanese Cultural Classes
- Japanese Flower Arrangement
